Pros

Working with newest hw before it's released on the market. Customers are some of the biggest names in the world. Freedom to contribute ideas on products and improve them. Colleagues are enthusiastic about technology. Senior management, company culture and career oportunities.

Cons

Sometimes people will get hired because of a desperate need to hire people; this ruins some of the existing social chemistry. Sometimes the people that get hired get treated better than current [deserving] employees; this discussion does go into a grey area and it's something that happens in a lot of companies.

Advice to Management

The company management is going through a continuous learning cycle, which will help it make better decisions about hiring and retaining the employees that it needs. Just don't rush the hiring part.

    Pros

    Big company with many opportunities IF you work for it. This is not a place you will ever stare at the clock bored and wondering what to do next. Lots to learn in the semiconductor industry as well as led lighting, renewable energy, rf and wireless and other focus segments. You are working in a team, but success comes to self starters that are motivated. HR does a good job to have free ice cream on Fridays in the summer, free coffee and tea always available, as well as many themed free food days such as apple pie and ice cream in the fall or iced coffee days. Cafe is really good. Pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Depending on your job it can be difficult to keep up. Lots going on at one time. The company is entrepreneurial, but people have made mistakes so there are SOP's in place to prevent mistakes, but that can also limit possibilities to the point where some people have given up trying new things.

    Advice to Management

    Responsibility has been driven to the top forcing daily activities to take longer than they should while leaving employees feeling unmotivated.

  2. Very competitive salaries and benefits in comparison to other big employers in the area

    Pros

    If you compare it to a number of others, the retention is much higher, pay is better and the environment benefits and work/life balance also tend to be a step above. Plenty of advancement opportunities - however this is not a place where you should expect to be promoted just by being there long enough. Also plenty of opportunities to move into different areas within the company as well as travel even in non-management positions. Company has a heathly sense of community and giving back. One of the few corporate offices that is more about individuality rather than conformity -diverse workforce a plus as well.

    Cons

    Leadership on the whole is fairly good however lower level management may be hit or miss - upper management is excellent. The competition can be tough however there are ample resources that the company provides to train up and gain more experience to leverage.

    Advice to Management

    Bring on more big lines.
