I have been working at Fairchild Semiconductor full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

If you want to know the right way to run a facilities dept... maint, eng, eviro, etc. Fairchild SoPo does it right and by the book. Great place to work.

Best site managment team I've worked for.

Cons

like anywhere else, do more with less. Everyone is spread very thin but thats better than staring layoffs in face.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need better health ins... copays too high for specialists.
Need to bring back stock purchase plan.
401K match could be better.
gimme gimme gimme
