I worked at Atmel full-time

Pros

Laid back work culture, could make you feel sometimes that you are on a vacation :)
No hard deadlines in engineering
Please manager to stick around or grow :)
Good place to retire or join after 50 years of age

Cons

Slow or no career growth
When issue comes, politics and finger-pointing starts and a work around evolves
Poor leadership in some groups (like memory product group, specially in marketing)
Too much focus by company on planning, IT and legal groups

Advice to Management

Value non-management engineering employees before rewarding heavy stocks and pay to management.
Look at growing memory products by change in management

    Pros

    Atmel is a friendly place to work. Good hours, easy for time off if needed for personal reasons.

    Cons

    The SAP system is poorly maintained. Most of the system is custom which is normally fine but there is no understanding by associates as to where their input is going or what it effects downstream. Most of the company works in silos. The SAP system is not understood by upper management and because of this, the foundation for the system will never grow. Constant issues surrounding their master data between open orders for 8 years or associates with open access changing data to meet their needs. The company spends more time manipulating their data to pull simple reports.

    Associates a grossly underpaid and taught to never think or understand what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    They need to understand what they have on the system and how it works before its too late.
