    Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    Prosvery good work life balance
    amazing atmosphere for Indians.

    Conslow pay, very low bonuses,

    Advice to Senior ManagementMANAGEMENT DO NOT KNOW HOW TO SAY NO - single most reason this company is in dire straits
    If New CEO Sanjay cant wield some magic wand and do something its going to be very difficult.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good first month

    Manufacturing Systems Manager (Current Employee)
    Malta, NY

    ProsGood initial salary, no idea of future increases. CEO has a vision and is not afraid to tell it like it is. If we are not doing well he holds no punches. The amount of money they are spending on the Malta site is a good indiction they intend be around a while.

    ConsLack of training for simple dya to day tasks. Need to focus more on initial training of employees and not just getting them in the door. Hiring process is a little sloppy and needs more focus on communicating with applicants.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on emloyee satisfaction and understanding exactly what motivates your employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Still creating 1 company from 3 companies but it will be a world leading foundry

    Marketing (Current Employee)
    Malta, NY

    ProsCompensation is very good and colleagues are smart and focused. With dedication and collaboration my colleagues and I have made a lot of progress with customers and business growth. The new CEO, Sanjay Jha, is focused on improving the companies technology and supporting the planned growth. My manager has been responsive and flexible, but this likely depends on who you work for. There is plenty of opportunity for advancement depending on the job you are doing.

    ConsThere is still some culture clash from combining 2 different semiconductor companies. It is improving, but there is sometimes conflict and combativeness. The people responsible are being held accountable so it will improve over time. The organization changes a lot since it is still coming together and there have been frequent management changes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold people responsible for execution (or lack thereof) for projects. Too often project milestones and deadlines are missed which impacts customers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Average day's work for an average day's pay.

    Product Engineer (Member of Technical Staff) (Current Employee)
    Malta, NY

    ProsLarge company with deep pockets (the investment arms is going to pledge $10billion over the next two years). Interesting work.

    ConsLittle to know training what-so-ever, I was told by a senior manager to go look on youtube to figure out how to run a software application.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut training in place so your employees will be productive or else they will flounder in their current positions and quit in frustration.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
