Pros

Good compensation. Work very independently. Nobody will tell you how to do your work.

Cons

No training. Archaic work methods. Constant reorgs and reshuffling. Extremely political. Almost any activity is spread across 3 continents. No long-term vision. This is a typical semiconductor company:sell more silicon that costs less money. The products themselves are considered fancy and unreasonably expensive packaging. It is all about moving NAND Exabytes.

Advice to Management

I would advice the BoD to replace management with brilliant managers who have varied experience. You judge brilliance at an interview, not by resume accomplishments. And make sure the CEO is capable of leading a company. And an MBA (a real MBA, not a Stanford remedial course) actually helps.

    Pros

    Competitive salaries for the industry
    Profitable company most of the time
    Never dull, good and bad

    Cons

    Bottom line driven and cost cutting focused to a fault
    Not a lot of training, expected to contribute the day you are hired

    Advice to Management

    It is OK to hold a little inventory if it means better customer experience
