    Pros

    Probably the best large semiconductor company culture. Very "can-do", focused on results, light on bureaucracy for its size.

    Cons

    It gets worse every year: with growth it becomes more political, more bureaucratic, less the exceptional company it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize, as centralization is harming incentives and results. Some much of the company has little direct reward from their business results.
