    Pros

    State of the art wafer fab and probe operation in Manassas Va
    Lots of expat assignments available

    No shortage of resources to get the job done

    Cons

    Most managers in the inner circle have never worked anywhere else and are a bit narrow-minded as a result.
    Outsiders have a hard time assimilating, many have short tenures.
    Jobs are highly compartmentalized

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the compartmentalization and let employees operate more cross-functionally

    Pros

    Over all it is a good place to work. As long as you do your job as expected you an expect to be treated well and be compensated fairly.

    Cons

    It is a large corporation. Positions tend to have a narrow scope making it difficult to gain a high level of understanding of the company.

    Advice to Management

    I know it is difficult to do, but job rotations might help to make things more interesting and cut down on turnover.
