    Pros

    The working environment is life balance promoting. People are great to work with and for and management develops employees to their fullest potential. The work is meaningful and you feel like you're apart of the overall team and end result.

    Cons

    Growth potential is limited. Only so many directors exist, so most end at middle management. People don't generally leave the company to leave vacancies for promotions.

    Pros

    They pay well, but they are very inefficient within their accounting department. There is not enough to do generally and you will have to find things to do.

    Cons

    The accounting functions have been outsourced and there are just a small skeleton crew working to link up with the accounting department in Portugal. The time difference can be a nightmare to get things finished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more contact and accessibility with employees.

    I worked at Infineon Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great colleagues, nice work environment, good benefits, high energy, challenging work, opportunity for advancement depends on your department and mobility, development of cutting edge products, senior management keeps a focus on how to make it a better place to work.

    Cons

    Decisions can take a long time, processes can be over complicated, heavy work loads, resources can be a challenge, communication is a plus or minus depending on where you sit in the organization (though there is a continuous focus for improvement on this area).

    Pros

    Good 401K, Nice Office, Mostly Professional People

    Cons

    Some managers should not be managing people.
    Limited career advancement.
    Unmotivated group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with the working level people for their honest feedback. It will not be easy to get unfiltered feedback, but if you want to really know what is going on then you need to talk with employees face-to-face; not soliciting people to answer a survey.
