    Pros

    Historically, they've treated their employees with respect and fairness under the management of Pasqualli Pistorio. They've respected the environment and tried to enact policies to protect it and recycle anywhere possible. The company has been an aggressive leader in this respect. One of the top ten Semiconductor companies in the world.

    Cons

    They are divesting their American manufacturing operations and moving everything overseas to China and Singapore. There will be no more manufacturing operations in the United States when this is completed. The target date for completion is June 2009, but it could come much sooner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new CEO is in my opinion, untried and moving to divest or consolidate most of their manufacturing base. I would advise him to not rely too heavily on one success road-map. The off ramp may not be what or where you're you're expecting it to be. I think entirely giving up the U.S. presence is a mistake that will be paid for later.

    Pros

    decent pay, good benefits. The european culture give you a lot vacation time. Awesome place if you want to get paid for not doing much.

    Cons

    internal Politics. Company is heavily europe centric and building an empire is high on every managers list. Too many people doing too little work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce company's dependence on the euro. Don't try to improve the company's bottom line by keeping business expenses low.
