    I worked at Infineon Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work language is english (german between german colleagues)
    Great work environment
    Very warm and welcoming people
    Excellent, modern infrastructure
    Personally had problems with the IT but that was a one time thing
    No extra time demanded (I was just a student worker)
    Good salary for the position
    Learned a lot, made contacts, an excellent experience

    Cons

    A lot of time wasted in useless meetings and telephone contacts
    Open office structure makes it hard to focus sometimes (people on the phone, talking...)
    Not much space to grow within the company
    Be ready to prove your worth
    Be ready to be placed in locations like Malasya
    Some unexplained decisions from the management
    A few full-time workers (not students) expressed some weariness at their jobs and the company
    Too much bureaucracy for even the simplest things

    I have been working at Infineon Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very laid back, no work pressure, seems to have some processes in place

    Cons

    Seems to allow managers to change mind on people immediately on having someone join. I was hired in the central corporate function and the interview was hasty, I was told to come on my own expense. Just 2 months on joining I was told to find another position within the company or leave in 6 months. No compensation for having shifted countries to take up the offer. The HR was totally absent in the whole procedure and seems to have no power at all. As I learnt, a hasty hiring decision was made expecting a hiring freeze, but then later when there there turned out to be no hiring freeze, the manager wanted to bring in a more suitable candidate by background.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strengthen processes and HR to prevent abuse by managers

    Pros

    Good work life balance , Nice and motivated teams

    Cons

    Not much scope of career growth specifically if you want to move into management functions, most of the people are 15+ years of experience and so no room for some fresher to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more dynamic in decision making and help employees in career-growth instead of stagnating them due to project pressures

    I worked at Infineon Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Does seem to have some processes and low work pressure, although the HR is non-existent as noted in the other reviews.

    Cons

    Non existent HR, as noted in the other reviews. I was hired in the corporate strategy team in a haphazard way, just one face to face interview paid for at my own expense and brought into Munich from another country. Just 2 months later I was told I do not fit into the level of seniority and asked to find another job till the end of the probationary period. HR just a passive bystander and not even prepared to help me get some compensation for having shifted family into a new country or any expenses for shifting back. In the end my previous employer rescued me, but I would caution anyone thinking of joining, especially from another country.
