    Pros

    There are very smart engineers working on countless innovations in the semiconductor industry. The company encourages the sharing of ideas across global lines. Significant amounts of revenue are re-invested into R&D.

    Cons

    Often profit and the bottom line comes before the valuation of their employees' tenure, current business relationships, and future contributions. The company seems to be having trouble achieving consistent success around operational efficiencies in an increasingly competitive industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why are you sitting on all of that cash?

    Pros

    90% of people are great, very professional and smart. Good products. Decent benefits. Good work-life balance. Decent pay. Open to career moves within the company.

    Cons

    Management seems to have no clear direction. Bad managers and low performers are not dealt with. Too much politics often gets in the way of successful product releases. Poor or no communication between upper management and the rest of the company, even amongst themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate people in management and align them where you want the company to be. Acknowledge top performers and remove bottom performers.
