    Pros

    long history in the industry. good benefits.

    Cons

    mean-time-to-re-org was way to small. Too much effort spent on struggling and dying business units. The Intel managers that came in 2005 to restructure the company did the one thing they knew how to do, cut. And they could not cut everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Align all VPs to the ONE thing that matters, operating income or whatever, then measure and reward it. Too many cooks spoil the stew.

    Pros

    Great people who are smart, have fun and work hard...

    Cons

    Executive Team only concerned about share holder value and not the folks out in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Never lose sight of the fact that the loyal hard working people out in the field on a daily basis are the one who work with your customers and are critical to your success.

    Pros

    Great people. Great environment. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    You need to either avoid, or kiss the ring, of the old engineers who personally knew Hewlett and Packard. Typical good ol' boy network. If you can't handle good ol' boy networks...why are you working in Semiconductors?

    Advice to Management

    You fired me, which was justified. But you are doing great work.
