I worked at Infineon Technologies

Pros

Good technology, good market in Germany, engineers given a lot of respect, reasonable salary, very nice facility, marketing team was good

Cons

It was the year of a bad economy, a lot of cutbacks and departments closures. The location was a small part of the company and hence not considered very important

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expand this location since space is available (lot of empty cubicles), focus increasing revenues, margins will be made up during a good economy

    Pros

    Good benefit package, still matches 401K plan, descent salaries, stable environment. Company still has Siemens mentality, management cares about people. Global management was able to perform restructuring during global crisis.

    Cons

    people handle multiple projects, although management cares about people there are many too complicated rules and regulations reducing motivation. System of incentives does not influence motivation of every particular person. A person can not drastically influence his own pay, it does not depend on his skills and hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is doing a good job in handling a tough financial situation, and cost savings. Management should improve communication within local teams. Do not go too far with cost savings, it can influence the quality of products and services.

    Pros

    Still a good place to work, respectful management, not bad navigation through tough economy. Knowledgeable staff, good chance to educate yourself working with industry leading experts. Company is an industry leader in some application areas. Restructuring helped company to remain an industry leader, stay on the cutting edge of technology.
    Still good benefits in tough economy times. Flexible time off,

    Cons

    After cutting costs people got assigned to multiple projects, too much paperwork, sometimes that paperwork takes more time and looks more important than actual work. People getting nervous, some are leaving the company (usually the best experts). Chances to get training reduced with budget cuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the number of middle level managers, amount of paperwork and reporting, regular internal meetings and conference calls. Be pragmatic!
