I worked at Cypress Semiconductor full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

You will learn what a company should look like. The computerized documentation system for new product introduction is the best I have ever worked with.

Cons

Highly unstable department configuration. For tactical reasons the company reorganizes very quickly when product line begin to fail. The inside political fighting is very vicious.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put all specs on spreadsheet forms. The existing documentation system that I developed for NPI vsystems needs to be fullly automated.

    I worked at Cypress Semiconductor full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Never boring; constantly new challenges and work is definitely not confined to repetitive tasks. Employees are encouraged to keep learning and improving processes and procedures

    Cons

    Very demanding and is more suitable for young single professionals than people who require good work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Facilitate a company wide anonymous survey to understand how the employees feel about the job demands and to understand the work life balance sacrifices that are needed to meet the job demands.

    Pros

    Very transparent. There was very little hierarchy. Much of your success was proportional to the quality of your work rather than perceptions.

    Cons

    Everyone wants to be TJ. And most people at the top put on that persona in a corp meeting.
