    I worked at Dialog Semiconductor full-time

    Pros

    if you performance well, you will get promoted. Decisions didnt take long time.

    Cons

    there was yearly feedback to employees. My feeling was, the managers didnt take it as a chance to develop the employees. The employee must be active to ask for feedbacks and career develop plans.

    I have been working at Dialog Semiconductor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits but an excuse for low compensation . Generally friendly people.

    Cons

    People are not able to focus on what they do but distracted by politics, especially management. Lack of consistency because of all kinds of exceptions based on favoritism and power and ranking. Very limited growth opportunities due to old-school promotion process. High dependence on Apple, which is always a struggle. Not competitive in the US market.

    Pros

    I’m going to put everything in here because let’s face it, one persons meat is another persons poison. Everything is subjective. If you are joining a business group that was bought into Dialog at a later date then this may not apply. 1) POLITICS Are you the new Malcolm Tucker? Then you should apply and sweep all before you! Make your way up the chain on the handles of all those embedded daggers in your colleagues back. You may even climb into the ‘circle of trust’ (see 4). The HR to engineer ratio is approximately 4 times the industry standard. Draw your own conclusions from that. 2)PROCESS Love working in top-down structured manner? Uh-oh! Processes are for the animals less equal. Cue complete mayhem in every ‘rock star’ led project. 3)PEOPLE Dialogs recruitment process is akin to a plane crash on a desert island. There is a heady mix of cultures, creeds and ability at all levels. Unfortunately, as in most survival situations, the narcissistic opportunists rise quickly to the top (reference point 1 above). The good folk forage for food and firewood, bashing out testbenches and hastily lashed together designs that must stand the scrutiny of the overlords. A conch shell is present at every project meeting, but sadly some animals are more equal than others. 4) PROGRESSION ‘Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving’ A Einstein. This is good advice, as if you want to keep the blades mentioned in (1) out of your vital organs, a degree of movement will help. However, what will help more is recognising the massively dysfunctional opportunists who have clambered up the path to middle management obscurity and agreeing with everything they say. Yes, everything. You may come to hate yourself for this, but it’s your call. 5) PARANOIA Paranoia in Dialog is based on insecurity, which is based on lack of competence, which is based on (1). Not many laughs there I’m afraid. Show any sign of independent thought, and they will be out to get you. 6)PURCHASES Can’t innovate? Won’t innovate? No idea which IOT fad to go for? I know, splurge on a startup that has no idea it’s about to enter an Orwellian World with 1970’s levels of worker satisfaction. Keep that growth ‘inorganic’!

    Cons

    As above, not my position to say if these points are pros or cons
