    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.

    Pros

    Pay is usually good, but a temporary thing.

    Cons

    Growth, Potential is low. Investment grade as viewed by the institiions is very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your core technologies and learn to innovate and grow organically. Past acquisitions were failures, cash position in 2011/2012 was a result of selling the wireless division to Intel.

    Pros

    Large company, reasonable benefit package, large set of product in the market, opportunity to find out about rest of the world!

    Cons

    In my case, my direct manager was a very competent and good guy but the higher management were totally opposite.

    No opinion of CEO

    pretty good technology, bad economy

    I worked at Infineon Technologies

    Pros

    Good technology, good market in Germany, engineers given a lot of respect, reasonable salary, very nice facility, marketing team was good

    Cons

    It was the year of a bad economy, a lot of cutbacks and departments closures. The location was a small part of the company and hence not considered very important

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand this location since space is available (lot of empty cubicles), focus increasing revenues, margins will be made up during a good economy

    Good company, but .... cost savings.

    Pros

    Good benefit package, still matches 401K plan, descent salaries, stable environment. Company still has Siemens mentality, management cares about people. Global management was able to perform restructuring during global crisis.

    Cons

    people handle multiple projects, although management cares about people there are many too complicated rules and regulations reducing motivation. System of incentives does not influence motivation of every particular person. A person can not drastically influence his own pay, it does not depend on his skills and hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is doing a good job in handling a tough financial situation, and cost savings. Management should improve communication within local teams. Do not go too far with cost savings, it can influence the quality of products and services.
