    Great Engineers, not so great senior management.

    Senior Hardware Engineer (Current Employee) Bristol, England (UK)

    ProsThe Bristol engineers are (were!) a great bunch - clever, resourceful and have a lot of expertise in their chosen fields. Flexible working time and holidays are a bonus. Pension and other benefits also good.

    ConsBristol: it's closing! Otherwise, being French it is overly bureaucratic, IT in particular. There is also too much management hierarchy meaning the CEO and board are disconnected from the engineers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop closing site that have the expertise to get the company moving.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good, until redundancy came

    Software Design Eng (Current Employee) Bristol, England (UK)

    Prosinternational environment
    cutting-edge products
    still one of the main semiconductor company

    Consitalian-french company: they are close to both government, so, even if result in business damage, they keep employer in these 2 countries.
    Management is a caste, so they protect themselves, even if someone did some very bad choices

    Advice to Senior ManagementClosing eng site reduces competitiveness and lose of knowledge, competitors thank for this. if business goes bad it is not engs fault, indeed other companies are willing to take them! Management and CEO should be responsible for what happens to business but they never pay for their errors

    Career TRAP for Asian managers, retiring haven for older professionals

    Manager Operations (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsWork Life balance as they dont disturb you during weekends. Starting salary is high but that's it as it will have a snail pace increment.

    ConsToo many European senior managers. Doesn't train their managers to justify their contract. Ensuring that people under them specifically Asian managers looks incompetent to justify their existence. Very highly political environment and decisions are made ensuring expat bosses gets the credit. Its so shameful seeing directors shouting at each other in a meeting and basically they are RUDE.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview expat allocations as there are roles that can be integrated into one role ex. Director for warehousing and Director for Logistics can be merged.
