    I have been working at Atmel full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management is focused, having in recent years reduced its number of different pursuits while building upon those which Atmel is most competitive in. Quarterly all-hands meetings allow everyone to see and understand management's intentions in the marketplace, and those intentions appear well-founded to me.

    Cons

    About a year ago we moved into a nice, new building, but with 8 stories (whereas the old building had only 2), one no longer runs into many peers, unless specificially seeking them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work; the worldwide recession is easing, and I'm convinced that we're in for many strong years, ahead.
