    I worked at Cypress Semiconductor full-time for more than 5 years


    I liked the physical environment, salary, benefits and the talented, competent coworkers.
    Team atmosphere was good for the most part. I admired TJ Rodgers for his willingness to invest in his employees through offsite training or outside trainers brought in to give people the skills they need to succeed. This extends to providing discounted PC's for personal use, and tools and equipment needed on the job.
    Christmas parties, summer picnics, and "theatre parties" were good morale boosters (I can only speak for the 1990's)


    Too many meetings and too much time preparing for meetings, detracting from time remaining to do actual work.
    Atmosphere in meetings was sometimes hostile, definitely worse than what my be considered "normal".
    Favoritism practiced by middle management allowed for the development of "cliques" and resentment at the lower levels. A single failure to meet the clearly stated, objective goals usually resulted in career-limiting consequences, particularly if you had all the tools and training you needed at your disposal (see pros)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to listen to all sides before trying to resolve conflict.
    Cut back on the frequency of meetings, particularly those that require time consuming collection of data in preparation.

    TJ - I love you buddy, but sometimes you need to take a deep breath and count to 10 before reacting!
