I have been working at Infineon Technologies

Pros

Friendly environment, most people are quite supportive and helpful.
Good opportunities for traveling between sites either on training or workshops.
Good starting point if you are interested in semiconductor industry

Cons

Poor benefit and health package. HR has no clue what employees want or how to retain people.
Long working hours, even on week ends with no recognition or appreciation from management.
"Pass the buck' attitude between various departments and sites.
Management rarely has a clue on their strategies, often end up being market followers rather than leaders.
High employment turn-over rate.Salary increment not in line with job responsibilities / position.
Poor promotion opportunities, complicated promotion assessments methods.
Poor communication between various sites, lack of info sharing, current implemented policies to promote knowledge exchange is severely deficient.
Runs like one big dysfunctional family without a clear future.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wake up and talk to your employees (especially in Asia). Make efforts to retain experienced staff and promote growth and open honest communication between various sites. Stop being the market followers, rethink strategies to leap ahead of competitors.

    Former Employee - Senior Product Engineer  in  Singapore (Singapore)
    Former Employee - Senior Product Engineer in Singapore (Singapore)

    I worked at Infineon Technologies

    Pros

    good respect towards employees. Willing to send engineers for overseas exposure. no micro management. if at kallang sector, the work enivronment is good. above average benefit. relax atmosphere.

    in germany, benefits and management even better.

    Cons

    still very german centric, knowledge+knowhow still concentrate in germany. management in germany still trust german engineers than singapore hence difficult to gain visibility.

    many engineering methodologies used are not well known industrially hence know-how learnt may not be transferable if u leave infineon. if in singapore, semiconductor equipment for FA limited. it is more of a design centre. good ic design and test engineers. product/FA engineering not so much scope, product engineers seemed isolated from fab processes which should not be the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in more product engineering and linking analysis to fab process crucial to profitability and improving know how of engineers
