    Pros

    Good benefits and compensation. You get to work with many very intelligent, talented, and dedicated people. There's a very strong sense of teamwork. Mentoring newer employees is a strong part of the culture here and is required for career advancement, which is great for both the mentor and the mentee. There's a healthy amount of room for career growth, but you have to work hard to get there. Safety, quality, and attention to detail are taken very seriously at all levels of management. Work life balance can be good with the right manager.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge. It is possible, but you have to hold your ground. You will always be asked to do more. On call rotation is a requirement for process/manufacturing related jobs. Yearly raises do no always correlate with individual performance. Sometimes they are based more on corporate performance as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Make work life balance for employees a higher priority. An employee who has a balanced life will be happy and more productive at work, and more loyal to the company. In groups where there is an overwhelming amount of work to do, hire more people to compensate. Try to standardize and offload work to lower grade levels to reduce the costs of hiring.

    Pros

    - Good salary - top 100 companies - labs already set up - large amount of people to learn from - exposure to a HVM process/fab

    Cons

    - long hours - bad work/life balance - little recognition - bureaucratic - lack of autonomy

    Advice to Management

    Reduce bureaucracy and enhance autonomy and recognition. Do not take for granted the long hours that most engineers push through on a regular basis.

    Pros

    great benefits, probably close to the best i have seen in this day and age. pay is good too and vacation time off.

    Cons

    managers are technical and not people based. some of the worst managers in the business i have come across, think they are great because they have a manager label. HR is toothless.

    Advice to Management

    HR is supposed to be impartial. Train your managers with some people skills.

    Pros

    You get to work on the most advanced technology in the world. Compared to most companies there are a lot of nice benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Layoffs every couple of years. Only have to worry if you get a bad annual review or low stock rewards for that year though.

    Advice to Management

    I would say most of the managers and GLs have no people or leadership skills
