    Pros

    I worked with an awesome team! All were very dedicated and truly enjoyed worked with one another.

    Cons

    The regions don't have much say so it causes delays and frustration. Corporate needs to loosen the reigns and allow more autonomy. They're going through lots of change now, so hope lessons have been learned and they move the company forward.

    Advice to Management

    Look to your talent within and foster more growth. Management needs to lead by example and not play favorites to simply reward their friends.

  3. Experience similar to other large firms - generally well managed at the executive level with decent work - life balance

    Pros

    Decent work - life balance, more so than the typical large firm, with tape-outs and productive first silicon milestones as natural exceptions.
    Colleagues are friendly and supportive, easy to work with.

    Cons

    Career advancement opportunities are few and far between.
    Compensation may be somewhat less competitive, so be prepared to walk if the offer is less than your budget needs, or negotiate for a competitive rate.

    Run like a German paternalistic company

    I worked at Infineon Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Well defined processes and tasks. You knew what was required of you. The company is well funded and conservatively managed which was beneficial during the 2008 downturn.

    Cons

    Very rigid and bureaucratic. Easy to get your job accomplished if it was part of the process but if creativity or new approach was required, forget about it. You are the nail to be hammered down.

    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 Management

    There should be more contact and accessibility with employees.

    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.
