One of MACOM’s main focuses is on our customers, and we go to great lengths to keep them satisfied. With employees in more than 25 locations worldwide, the company ensures that we are located in close proximity to our customer's facilities. The company has a presence throughout the major regions of the world. This approach means that customers enjoy the twin benefits of competitive pricing and localized services to help solve their complex problems.
Employees at MACOM can benefit from being given responsibility early in their careers. The company's goal is to continually provide safe, effective, high-quality products and services. To do so, MACOM does its best to ensure that employees have the skills and training to be able to perform tasks properly and efficiently. Once trained, each of MACOM’s employees has a critical role to play in maintaining the company's standards and reputation, and all employees are empowered to maintain and manage quality and compliance, and customer satisfaction along with it.
That commitment to quality is something that extends far beyond MACOM’s products, and influences every aspect of the company's approach—including training and professional development. MACOM is heavily invested in professional development, and takes pains to ensure that all employees have the knowledge and skills they need to not only perform on the job, but to advance in their careers.
MACOM makes significant investments in research and development with more than $40 million spent on future product development in fiscal year 2013, representing 12.7% of revenue. This investment has enabled the company to make significant advancements to bringing state-of-the-art technology to the consumer market.
MACOM rewards employees for patents and patent applications, and takes pride in its spirit of innovation. The company is on a constant quest to improve and upgrade existing technologies. MACOM employees have the opportunity to work on the cutting edge of semiconductor process and product technology development.
MACOM offers professional development courses in a variety of different disciplines including management, sales, and engineering. The goal is to ensure that our employees are empowered with the knowledge and competencies they need to perform on the job.
Within our technical community, the developmental program includes two career paths. The first is the management career path. This may include titles such as Engineering Manager, Engineering Director or VP Engineering. The second career path option is the individual contributor path. These titles may include Senior Engineer, Principal Engineer, or Distinguished Fellow.
As a company, MACOM is committed to continual improvement, and as such it is constantly seeking new ways to drive innovation. For that reason, MACOM invests more than 12% percent of the company’s sales revenue on research, development and engineering annually—in 2013 alone our investment was nearly $40 million. These efforts are supported by over 220 engineers and 4 global design centers, working closely with customers to develop applications—specific, highly engineered products and systems to satisfy customers’ needs. MACOM’s innovation, early design involvement and materials expertise give customers a competitive advantage by delivering new functionality, and by helping them to bring better performance to existing products, deliver new products to market faster, and realize greater efficiencies in their manufacturing processes.
