Pros

Best job I've ever had. I only work 50 hr /wk. Way better than Google, Apple, or LAM. But not Samsung. My friend works at Samsung, and he gets bigger bonuses

Cons

CEO Mike Splinter is a joke. Been there way too long. Salaries seem lower than other companies. If you have a bad boss, you're job will suck anywhere

Advice to Management

Pay more to keep your top talent

    Pros

    Dynamic and fast-paced, compensation is excellent, good teamwork and collaboration, incredibly bright and dedicated colleagues. The company invests a great deal in developing the skills of its workforce. Communication from senior management is usually quite good.

    Cons

    Very cyclical business often leads to sharp cost-cutting and reductions in force. While the compensation is excellent, management sometimes tends to view that as the cure of all "ailments".

    Pros

    The management seems to actually care about the well being of their employees. They offer many things on the job to help anyone who works there to deal with various issues within their lives, such as messages, yoga, exercise classes, team sports, a very good cafeteria, and more.

    Cons

    You can count on yearly layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be thoughtful, and do more.
