    I worked at PMC-Sierra

    Pros

    Technical Work: Good challenging work in some projects. Other projects could quite repetitive. Colleagues: Technically sound colleagues to work with. You could learn from and share knowledge across freely.

    Cons

    Timelines: Fast paced. Always working on strict timelines. Reduces scope for innovation very much. Career Growth: There's not much importance given to career growth, and is limited by the opportunities available within the organization. Could be stagnant for some people

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Interesting work,peers will help you a lot not many egoistic people among employees, lot of learning associated

    Cons

    kanjus company in facilities, social committee events are not interesting. manager level people will have more(full) control over all non-technical stuff. Forget about food in cafeteria. layoffs are relatively high

    Advice to Management

    team events are very less managers opinions are given very high importance regarding most of the facilities this is very clearly evident should start a common platform taking feedback in a regular basis social committee members does not have the habit of collecting ideas from other people as if you have to join SC to contribute regarding events or facilities every one cannot join in SC based on personal reasons

    I have been working at PMC-Sierra full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    good for contractors,self-contractors, good for MARATHI mother-tongue and MARATHI speaking folks. Better to work in a project which involves global team rather than local team.

    Cons

    monotonous work will be there for months and years, No growth in career, Bangalore management does a lot of politics. Promotion ladder is there majorly for those who resign and blackmail. Hardwork and talent have no more values here.

    Advice to Management

    Head quarters should involve in Bangalore team management activities to ring-out the wild bells.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at PMC-Sierra full-time

    Pros

    no work, so you can start your own business alongside. Well established clouts for MARATHI and TAMIL speaking people. Try your luck.

    Cons

    Too much of clout culture allows survival without doing any real work. No recognition for hard work and talent. You should be good in dodging work than doing work. Talented employees leave the company asap, so difficult to find any good people around to work with learn from.

    Advice to Management

    local management is hopeless, no point in advising. Global management should start taking bold decisions.
