    Pros

    Company is driven to do well but also leaves room for having life outside of work. Pay and benefits are very good. Plan going forward is solid with good focus. Excellent Strategic customer focus through out the company.

    Cons

    Poor Regional Sales plan with to much focus on regional revenue (shipping) and not enough focus on growing design wins and working across regions to grow second level revenue. Learning to have more upside capacity but slow to setup causing severe pain in regional sales chain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on grow brand awareness and winning sockets, less focus on losing sockets based on price at CM. Focus and teamwork on important end equipments and winning at the top customers. Utilize the knowledge gained here to produce better support material to be used by both regional sales and distribution to expand customer pool.

    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
