    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at PMC-Sierra full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It would be hard to believe that there is a better company for college grads, especially ones interested in design work. If you show the ambition and capability, you get to work on very cool things at PMC. As an entry level product development engineer, I worked on design projects that I never had thought I could. My friends at Broadcom and Qualcomm are so envious of my work. Some asked me to help them get a job here.

    Cons

    We work very hard and long hours. Salary is good but could be better - one of my mentors tells me of extreme salary compression once you have worked here for many years.
