    Pros

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

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

    My 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.

    Good semiconductor technology company to work for, though lacking in culture and recognition.

    I have been working at Atmel full-time

    Pros

    Not overly agressive product roll-out schedules. Decent compensation package. Work schedule isn't a sweatshop.

    Cons

    Not enough private and public recognition of employees who make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow peer reviews of senior management. Provide suggestion boxes for employees to contribute their ideas. Recognize individual superior performers for their contributions.
