    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to the people reporting to you. Resolve the conflicts properly and thoroughly and sniff out those who cannot work with others as a team due to bad attitude. It takes one rotten apple to ruin a whole basket of apples.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Skyworks Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the work can be interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    The job can get very demanding at times. Your job gets very specialized so broader learning opportunities are limited. Starting pay is okay, but raises don't keep up with inflation. Eventually, new hires with less experience will start with a higher salary than you. Recommend looking into other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the management is okay; however, they don't have enough autonomy to keep employees happy.
