I have been working at Atmel full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

People I work with, compensation, Paid time off, ESPP, Managers can be flexible, amazing level of expertise that has kept the fab in Colorado Springs running successfully

Cons

Unless you're a friend of Steve Laub's( you'll know because you've been promoted to a VP) or you're in sales it feels like you're not valued. If you work to actually make products you expect your job to be outsourced. Unfortunately management doesn't have any interest in actually being a manufacturer.

Advice to Management

Too many VP's and up who are taking tens of millions of dollars in compensation each year. Put money and resources into R&D and manufacturing in the U.S.
