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

    Pros

    good place to work. Nice people, motivated, innovative. social life is quite good. lots of career opportunities. very good compensation in case of lay off.

    Cons

    Company is too large. You do not want to get lost so you need to make a difference. Although my local own site was small so i did not suffer from these cons.

    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

    I have been working at Infineon Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    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
