Very fast paced environment, fun and great if you are a work-a-holic type and the people are awesome and fun to work with
Sr. Talent Acquisition Associate (Former Employee) –  Newbury Park, CA30 January 2018
The environment is extremely fast paced and you work in an environment where the expectations and goals are set to standards that are almost and sometimes unachievable and unrealistic. There was no bonus paid out in 2016 to any employees because the corporate goal of accomplishment the Annual Incentive Plan was set to high and in 2017 most businesses fell very short and didn't reach the goals and at least some got a little bit of bonus but not the target amount when the company is saying how much money they are making and the stock went up to $117 at one point. The employees work extensive hours to not get rewarded and the pay is so low and not really market rate. The best part though is the people are really awesome and make the difference. There are super intelligent hard working, dedicated, and fun employees that work collaborative and are really down to earth. There are so many PhD's but you would never know who is or is not because of again down to earth. Loved the people and sense of humor and professionalism.
Pros
People
Cons
Corporate politics and management not doing the right thing in many areas

Excellent environment some poor managers
Engineering Technician (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IA21 January 2018
Great place to work the only downside is that some managers are pretty poor if you get a good one you'll stay forever if you get a poor one try and stick it out until you can move to a different position

It wasn't the company, it was my manager.
Engineering Technician (Former Employee) –  Newbury Park, CA12 January 2018
Skyworks Solutions is a solid place to work in terms of work/life balance as an HOURLY employee. It is a decent workplace in terms of learning more about your profession. Depending on who you work for in the company, it can either drain the life out of you or be something to look forward to on a Monday morning. Compensation needs a lot more attention. I was rather surprised to see the company doesn't honor some glaringly expected holidays (i.e. Martin Luther King Day). As much of an impact as MLK had on our history, I'm shocked Skyworks Solutions sees it as any other day on the calendar.
I've heard it before and I completely agree, many employees don't leave the company, they leave their manager. In many instances, I've found this to be very true. The best bosses I've ever worked for shake your hand and show appreciation, physically and verbally for the work you put in and staying late to get the job done. I don't think managers quite understand just how much of an impact showing appreciation can have. Monetary gratitude is always amazing, but, hearing a genuine "thank you! Keep it up" can move mountains.
Pros
Work/life balance. No particular dress code.
Cons
Compensation. Lack of leadership.

A fast paced growing company. Standard benefits, but the 401k at 4% match and stock options as a long term incentive is a great benefit with a growing company.

A good place to work as a novice technician.
Engineering Technician (Current Employee) –  Milpitas, CA28 August 2017
Isolink (part of Skyworks Solutions) is a place that need to invest in new equipment, and the engineering technician position is more like an assembler position not much room to develop a career.

Great Place to work.
Design Engineering Technician IV (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NC16 August 2017
Great place to work really felt like a valued employee. Team building exercises and lunches for training and employment morale. Enjoyed working with great leaders that locally judged you on your work not the color of your skin. Engineers that trained technicians to netter serve them in making the deadlines from corporate as well as customer commitments. Enjoyable company at least the Greensboro Facility.
Pros
Team environment, great group of guys small design group.
Cons
Lay off due to where you where not what or how you did.
