    I worked at Infineon Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay well, but they are very inefficient within their accounting department. There is not enough to do generally and you will have to find things to do.

    Cons

    The accounting functions have been outsourced and there are just a small skeleton crew working to link up with the accounting department in Portugal. The time difference can be a nightmare to get things finished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more contact and accessibility with employees.

    Pros

    Good 401K, Nice Office, Mostly Professional People

    Cons

    Some managers should not be managing people.
    Limited career advancement.
    Unmotivated group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with the working level people for their honest feedback. It will not be easy to get unfiltered feedback, but if you want to really know what is going on then you need to talk with employees face-to-face; not soliciting people to answer a survey.

    I worked at Infineon Technologies

    Pros

    Large company, reasonable benefit package, large set of product in the market, opportunity to find out about rest of the world!

    Cons

    In my case, my direct manager was a very competent and good guy but the higher management were totally opposite.

    I have been working at Infineon Technologies

    Pros

    Good benefit package, still matches 401K plan, descent salaries, stable environment. Company still has Siemens mentality, management cares about people. Global management was able to perform restructuring during global crisis.

    Cons

    people handle multiple projects, although management cares about people there are many too complicated rules and regulations reducing motivation. System of incentives does not influence motivation of every particular person. A person can not drastically influence his own pay, it does not depend on his skills and hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is doing a good job in handling a tough financial situation, and cost savings. Management should improve communication within local teams. Do not go too far with cost savings, it can influence the quality of products and services.

    I have been working at Infineon Technologies

    Pros

    Lot's of policies and procedures to get things done, none of which are really documented anywhere. You really have to know who to talk to to get things done

    Cons

    Probably none if you are in Munich. In a satellite development site, it's very difficult to understand what's going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose about half the management and kill the matrix management approach
