    I have been working at AMO

    Pros

    Great work environment
    Nice people to work with - almost no fighting over career positions
    Very flexible and individual working style
    Students and job starters are given a large variety of opportunities with lots of training "on the job"
    Good work-life balance, almost no weekend work required
    Compared to other semiconductor companies probably good job security, no "hire & fire"
    Low level of bureaucracy & almost no fancy modern management strategies,
    instead creative and direct involvement of the employees at least in their field of responsibility

    Cons

    Extremely limited career opportunities
    Low pay
    No business or profit related benefits
    Business divisions and capabilities split up between different groups, which don´t work together
    Tight budgets
    Capex for personel or technical equipment always bound to official project fundings.
    Customer orientation, resulting cashflow and profit could be much better
    Stuck in "university"-working style with extreme focus on non-profit operations
    Workforce too small to build up competent teams.
    Almost completely dependent on government funding

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better feedback desirable
    Increase employee motivation by increasing either field of responsibility or benefits
    Support careers from inside instead of hiring external personel
    Install some kind of bonus system, triggered by individual grade of responsibility for projects, equipment & workload.
