How is Mini-circuits? Anybody on this forum works there? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

No, I do not work there, but know from talking to people there that it is not a desireable place to work.

Don't know if that's what the poster has in mind - could just mean lots of yelling and fighting between employees.

I've worked for companies like that, where the people act like whiny children.

I hear that Harvey is a tough cookie. I know several that worked there. They have implied it is a sweat shop. I hear that when you come out of the interview, you will be thinking WTF ?

I also hear that they pay well and you will get good design experience. i HAVEN'T heard of any job now that you DON'T work your balls off.

HINT: parking sucks BUT do not park in Harvey's spot

Texas Instruments is also very hostile. Agriculture qualified boss making decisions about 802.11a/b/g/, RF and antennas. Killed all invents and patents.

Hey Guest,
I just got a call from a headhunter re: a Global Spec out of Troy NY--sort of an engineer's Google. Is this the company you were referring to? I am scheduled for an interview with their sales manager and found your quote while checking them out on the net. Can you make any suggestions/recommendations on what to watch out for?
Thanks in Advance,
Mikey

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
