    Pros

    Power managment chips is a profitable business sector

    Cons

    like most companies of similar size training is tied to senior managers and can take time, I mean time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people some training and make sure they get it

    Pros

    Paid training courses, many benefits and stock options. Some engineers are paid very generously. Most importantly, the company has a future.

    Cons

    Bad location (Swindon). Design engineers mostly do verification (unless you're a Principle Engineer) and learn little. The business (power management) is not very interesting. Large gaps in engineering salaries.

    Pros

    Salary better than most competitors, offices are nice, some decent benefits.

    Cons

    -Very political and "cold", lots of back-biting.

    -Processes take a long time (training, for one).

    -Certain political players get all the good work and perks. Not good if not into politics - made me sick to see.

    -They retain poisonous employees who are either no good at their job, sow seeds of discord, or are very adept at playing the political game. Definitely favouritism.

    -Offices, while nice, are often lacking atmosphere.

    -Too many trying to climb the greasy pole.

    -Lack of communication in some offices.

    -Munich & Austrian offices over-worked.

    -Project management office treats you like a number.

    -Reverence for 'top designers' but couldn't see why; I saw several design flaws I would have changed.

    -Lack of interesting work for apps, design, and possibly other functions - heard this was particularly bad at Edinburgh site but can't confirm.

    -Analogue & Digital design was almost non-existent - across sites there is a lot of grumbling about designers being used only for verification purposes; design skills die out over time so not a good situation for the employee.

    -Personally, I left one of the German offices after just over a year for a LOWER salary at another company in Austria, but I'm getting better experience which will be of benefit in the long-run. Turns out money isn't everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
