    Pros

    Compensation among the best in the industry. Highly innovative company investing in future Research and Development. Great leadership and moves fast.

    Cons

    Vacation time is lower than industry average, but tries to make up for it with an extended emplyee sabatical every 7 years. Highly competitive environment, which can lead to information & recognition hoarding by some employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to increase focus on the people in the company. Be proactive in new technologies (stay ahead of the curve), place bets on a few of the most innovative ideas and commit.

    Pros

    Dealing with Top notch technology with reasonable pay package. Good future, commited to spend in research & developement, top notch technology.

    Cons

    Not as annovative as Apple, Google. Always does the catch up game. Review process is not very growth oriented. Process technology leadership is waning.

    Advice to Management

    Make the review process growth oriented, take out sycoophancy, beuracracy and inspire the new ideas. Take out the tools which are falling behind of industry standard eda tools

    Pros

    Great package overall. Lifestyle is very relaxing. Open environment. Very casual dress code. Facilities offer great things like on-site gym, medical facility, cafeteria, softball field, basketball and volleyball courts. People (other than some management at TMG) are pretty cool. Multicultural (it seems like a UN meeting everytime).

    Cons

    Compensation ($) wasn't great unless you have higher degrees and not even then. Management at ATTD has a lot of flaws and they're not very open to change. Workload at ATTD can be a little too much very often. Not everyone is up to date when it comes to technology, so you have to deal with that. Some people might be to hard to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better communication accross the board, not only with middle management, because they do not give the right message, it gets lost in transition. Thank your employees for their efforts. Encourage professional development by acting on it, not only talking about it.

    Pros

    At Intel, I got to build products that really affected the world: walk down the aisle in a plane, and nearly every laptop you see would be something you worked on.

    Cons

    Big company, maturing industry, design by committee, FUD.

    Advice to Management

    The technical ladder has been gamed.

    Pros

    top technology place. Best place to work at if you are interested in silicon technology. Also great now for server ingredient technologies.

    Cons

    Mostly based on meritocracy but lots of scope for mediocre people to get by with BS. Management is too preoccupied keeping themselves in place and looking after themselves than grooming their employees

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the management that exists only by playing politics. Politics to further company/group interests is one thing: it's quite another to use politics to hang around.

    Pros

    Lets you balance work and life nicely (might depend on the group and your manager though) Flexible working hours Exciting time to work for this company

    Cons

    Almost like a government company Things proceed too slowly. Highly bureaucratic Some groups can be very demanding and not that rewarding

    Advice to Management

    Look at what competition does right. Please offer competitive salaries like other companies do. Most employees are overworked and underpaid
