Change in leadership, not familiar with the industry and the Company.
Trend in offshore manufacturing putting US positions at risk.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to understand the skill sets and value in the people before major decisions are made.
You find employees will rally if the objectives are clear and don't change regularly.

    I have been working at Fairchild Semiconductor

    Pros

    Its very much a team environment at fairchild, where you can come to depend on others to share the work load with. There isn't much stress that comes along wiht the job, as long as you do what you're supposed to you'll be fine.

    Cons

    Starting pay isn't very high and form what I've heard it takes a while to start earning some good money. Unless you went to school for computer engineering or have taken courses in cmputer programming finding career growth withnin the company may be a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more importance on planning and logistics when structuring each site.
