LCC/WFI or tier-2 companies - AirCom, Celcite, MobilComm,? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Some thoughts to ponder!

- In an upmarket like these days - huge demand -low supply of quality engineers, clients (carriers/vendors) are opening up their doors to tier 2 consulting companies like AirCom, MobilComm, cellcite,InCode etc. there are ample of projects for these companies as well as the 2 biggies - LCC & WFI (god bless Marconi's soul!...they are not as big as MSI used to be)..does it really matter when the salaries are competetive + similar or better benefits (401K, med +dental insurances etc) to go for the big ones ...they even make you pay for your immigrations !!

- Sometimes I feel these smaller companies have an edge over their bigger rivals especially because they work on lower margins / low overheads and better packages for their employees - they can really thrive while the biggies still try to maintain their big packages for the top management + squeeze the employees (by offerning no pay on bench) etc.

Fortunately these days all consultants (or contractors ) have a project, but its worth remembering the 2001-2003 down phase when the true colors or all companies were revealed!

- Happy minting!

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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
