Great People

Marketing Coord (Current Employee)
Colorado Springs, CO

ProsThe people are really nice and work well together. Great team work in all departments.

ConsUpper Management in San Jose only thinks of saving money so jobs are outsourced or consolidated without any consideration of their employees and the effect this has on the employees that are laid off.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to upper management who makes these decisions, think about what it would feel like to outsource your position, we could save a lot of money that way...than maybe you would be more senstive to your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Politics instead of chip making

    Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

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


    Pros: Bay Area's nice weather, really. There are many engineers from design… Cons: Do not have any hope as an engineer.
