    Motivating and exciting was a great place to work for.

    Senior Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) Hauppauge, NY (US)

    ProsThe people were like family. Looked forward working everyday.

    ConsCommunication was a big problem. Even though I was promoted, there really wasn't any room for growth. The company was sold to Microchip Technology which, I was included in a lay-off which consisted of 95% of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNew ideas and improved software programs are usually an asset to a company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ok place to work, but nothing special

    Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsSMSC had a good and diverse portfolio of products. When one product line was down, others were usually doing well and able to make up the difference. SMSC bought a few good and unique technologies but could never quite take advantage. Best thing about SMSC? It beats what came after it.

    ConsSMSC never acquired enough critical mass to get to the next corporate level. Over the last few years, it became obvious that upper management was more interested in making the company look good on paper rather than actually growing the business. When they finally found a buyer not sophisticated enough to tell the difference, upper management sold out the rest of us and made off with a small fortune.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo late now, but you need to stop overfilling the ranks of upper management with your buddies from previous jobs.

    Great place to work but unstable

    Lead Engineering Technician (Current Employee) Hauppauge, NY (US)

    ProsCutting edge technology with talented and good people. Great place to work as far as flexibility goes. Management willing to work with employees when it comes to personal life and work schedule.

    ConsUnstable and constant downsizing in New York. Employee's extremely insecure due to outsourcing and downsizing. Tough for employees to stay focused and engaged when they don't know if they will have a job quarter to quarter.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDue to instability, employees more worried about their job instead of just doing their job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
