Current Employee - Senior Principal Engineer  in  San Diego, CA
Current Employee - Senior Principal Engineer in San Diego, CA

Pros

Relaxed attitude to work hours, good vacation and pay, very diverse portfolio of products enables many career move options, large diversity of world sites gives opportunity for travel and job advancement.

Cons

Very euro-centric management, difficult to break into "inner circle" if not close to European HQ, diversity of product portfolio can often seem to make strategic decision making chaotic with no overall direction for company. This often translates to job uncertainty at the individual level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Diversify power structure, bring in outside managers with new ideas.

    Former Employee - Principal Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

    Pros

    * Working environment is relaxed and comfortable
    * Compensation is very competitive to other companies with a good bonus on base salary
    * Could be a good place to learn and gain knowledge
    * Big company that can afford to tackle big markets and product lines
    * Did not lay off as aggressively as other companies during the recession

    Cons

    * Very political in terms of career advancement
    * European management is a disaster. No clear vision of what they want to do. Very slow in taking critical decisions. Can let valuable people leave the company easily.
    * There are good peers but also more than what could afforded of mediocre engineers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a product fails due to management mistakes, managers should be affected and not engineers. In order to compete with American companies change has to happen at the top.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Former Employee - Manufacturing Tech II in Phoenix, AZ

    Pros

    Compressed Workweeks, decent cafeteria, hilarious international Q&A board.

    Cons

    Poor reviews. As a tech, credit seemed to be given to those who sent the most emails versus those output the most work. Better raises are given to people who do zero work but make themselves the most vocal, while the others pick up the slack.

    Don't count on hard work getting you appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the good employees better, trim the fat (literally), and quality employees might stick around
