    I worked at Infineon Technologies full-time

    Pros

    You earn a lot of money and don't have to work at all. So if you prefer to read newspaper all day, apply!

    Cons

    If you really want to work and not getting dumber every day, this is the wrong company for you. They mostly hire people (with experience) and need to explain them one hour every day how to check emails. They have a few people who are smart and they do all the work. No equality at all, women get paid less and have less freedom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave, make space for younger, qualified people, and don't hire very dumb person you can find.

    Working life is not balanced. Production and process are the main targets. Always need to answer for everything.
