I have been working at Cypress Semiconductor full-time (more than 8 years)Pros
-You are given meaningful work after a brief training period
-You are expected to perform. People looking to coast should not even interview here.
-You get to personally sign off on what you will deliver, so if your work-life balance is out of whack, you have no one to blame but yourself. If you want to work hard and out-perform others, you will be noticed and rewarded accordingly. If you are in a period where life needs more time, that's usually OK too, just don't expect to get as good of a raise as a peer that had more output than you.
-Benefits are better than average.Cons
-Salary is often not competitive. HR tries to spin it off such that the overall compensation is competitive, but now that the stock price is not as volatile as it was in the past, the ESPP program is no longer as valuable to employees as it once was.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Culture can often be too rough around the edges, to the point that it lacks professionalism. That largely comes from the CEO. Putting the fear of god in people is required at times, but that card gets played too often in my opinion.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
