    I worked at PMC-Sierra full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Kind co-workers with nice environments, including cafeteria and gym. Greate infra/system to learn technical skills as a coop student.

    Cons

    Nothing specially negative. You need to be "people person". You must know how to manager your time in the independent environment.
