    Pros

    Good Benefits (401k, health, dental, eye), gym at headquarters. Nice colleagues/managers.

    Cons

    Semi-conductors are not a hot market anymore. Layoffs and budget cuts are common. Company is getting cheaper and cheaper by the day--cutting socializing events and morale boosting activities, they keep track of how many pens & other supplies you take for working to name a few. Opportunities for growth are limited due to lack of company growth. It feels like they got used to the growth the '90s and forgot to invest in future technology to keep the growth going.

    Pros

    Some of the technologies are good, but even within R&D you are not free to work on those

    Cons

    Too much politics. Personnel close too higher management get preference.

    Advice to Management

    Please walk the talk. Make it really performance based

    Pros

    Really good place to go to gain experience for a couple years, but not a place to stay for a long time. Lots of people are really nice.

    Cons

    Stock has grown at a snails pace, they love to blame their customers for their internal problems. The employee voice is lacking in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop blaming your customers for your poor performance. It really is embarrassing. Tunc- just say you made mistakes and you are fixing them. Accountability is really the best way to go here.
