Pros

They are a relatively stable semi-conductor company which is good if all you want is just a job as an engineer. Work load is normal and not crazy and most people work from 9-10am to 6pm only.

Cons

Lack of promotion opportunities and a advancement system. They do not annually review whether you should be promoted or what you should do to be promoted. This is bad especially for younger people because you will be stuck in a junior position without much salary increase. You can push your managers but the company itself lacks a system. The best way is to just move on to another company.

    Pros

    Atmel has great benefits and the compressed shift schedules are great for working parents or someone trying to go to school. The salaries are pretty competitive for the colorado springs area. There are some opportunities for advancement. Atmel in colorado springs seems like it is trying to become a better and friendlier place to work, management is communicating better with employees and trying to include them in the process of making the fab more streamlined and profitable.

    Cons

    Management is very inconsistant in dealing with employees. Some supervisors bully and threaten employees and most of us feel like there is no "safe" person to go to when there is a problem with someone in a management position. Atmel has recognized this and is trying to make changes so hopefully things will get better. I think the problems have gone on so long now that morale is very low and nobody trusts that atmel is going to do anything they say they will.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, everyone will come around when they realize things really are changing.
