Need to look elsewhere if you want advancement

Technical Program Manager (Current Employee)
Colorado Springs, CO

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

ProsPeople are good to work with, benefits (insurance) is good.

ConsNo potential for growth. No acknowledgement of advanced degrees gotten while working for the company, no intent by the company to use that education. Pay isn't competitive, no training on any of the systems in use, terrible morale. Poor communication.

Advice to Senior ManagementReward more then the executive committee and directors when the company is doing good. Spend some time talking the the people that do that actual work of the company before you change or modify systems. You ever see "Undercover Bosses"?.... you guys could totally benefit by seeing what it's like to work for this company.

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