Pros

Flexible work hours, laid back and friendly atmosphere, and steady amount of work make it a good place to work. The business is managed well from the top-down and has growth potential in certain areas.

Cons

Unfortunately, due to the laid back atmosphere innovation is somewhat low. The compensation package is barely competitive and thus talent retainment may become a challenge once the economy improves. Too much importance on reducing expenses. It maybe stifling innovation.

Advice to Management

Ease up compensation now that you have better performance evaluation in place. Hold employees accountable to their goals and attract leading talent using compensation. Promote the strategic leadership program and announce some sort of bonus associated with the program.

    Pros

    This fabless semi-conductor design house has many opportunities for engineers to learn the entire design flow and has a lot of very good engineers.

    Cons

    Recent changes in management combined with economic changes have forced SMSC to take advantage of lower cost geographies. Limited earnings potential.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO talks about rewarding individuals based on performance but has failed to do so. The HR department needs really improve their practices and empower managers to have better tools to help their people advance their careers. More transparency.

    Pros

    Offene Managementkultur. Sehr guter Teamgeist. Die Erwartungen sind hoch, aber die Mitarbeiter werden unterstützt und bekommen Freiraum. Keine gegenseitigen Beschuldigungen.

    Open management culture Great team spirit High expectations but employees are supported well and given room to move Blame free culture

    Cons

    Führungssschwäche im Hinblick auf ein koordiniertes Team. Starke Ausrichtung auf Quartalsergebnisse – keine längerfristig orientierte Sichtweise. Kürzlich an ein größeres Unternehmen verkauft – turbulente Zeiten.

    Lack of clear leadership resp. an aligned team Strong focus on quarterly results - missing the more longer term view Recently sold to larger organisation - turbulent times
