No communication from management
Always waits until its an issue before beginning resolution

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With the movement of jobs to Malaysia, how will the US economy recover. Investing in automation, upgrades and effeciency could help reduce overhead cost. Steve Laub is driving a $500K car, how does that make the employees feel with lay offs. Some one is thinking of the overall good of the company

    I have been working at Atmel

    Pros

    Most salaried people work 40 hours plus or minus. It has a laid back atmosphere. It is easy to interact with other groups.

    Cons

    There are limited means for upward movement or even lateral movement. The 401k match has always been poor and it is currently nonexistent. Raises/promotions are probably only given about every other year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To keep employees happy and to retain top employees a better 401k plan should be implemented. Also there is a distrust of upper management due to stock granting.

    Some upsides, but the low employee morale brings you down

    I worked at Atmel

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, nice health benefits. You get a sense of working on projects integral to consumer electronics devices. The chance to work for a well-respected member of the tech industry.

    Cons

    Lower pay than at comparable tech companies. Incredibly low employee morale seems to be the norm. As a younger engineer, I have seen too many engineers later in their career who feel mired in their current position and unhappy with the career path they have had at Atmel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with employees as to the state of the company.
