Co-op at PMC
Technology Access (Co-op) (Former Employee), Burnaby, BCJune 29, 2013
Pros: competitive pay
Not the most organized management. I think its team dependent but I was basically treated like a tool (excluded from meetings, separated cubicle from the team, etc) I've never had a chance to meet the direct manager I report to during 4 months of co-op. Definitely was not a fun experience. Work is also meh.

top of the line team
Physical Design Engineer (Former Employee), Burnaby, BCMarch 8, 2013
Pros: friendly environment, lots of good technical add-ons.

Working at PMC-Sierra gave me this opportunity to learn current challenges in digital design especially designs that are happening in sub-threshold domain. I really loved those challenges and solving industrially demanding projects. It was a pleasure working in such a friendly and helpful team.

Cons: streched thin
It was a good experience Supportive and close knit company
Small size company based out of Canada. Overall markets are customer chips for white boxes and OEM products custom designed for specific purpose.

The hardest part is that the personnel is limited and the work is not balanced in distribution.
