    I worked at Cypress Semiconductor full-time (More than 3 years)


    Your co-workers are good to you if you communicate. Everyone tries hard and has grit. You have a lot of responsibility early in your career.


    You don't last without grit. I think the company is too lean and the culture punishes employees because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Slowly build up experience and keep pay in line with industry standards to keep the experience. Define the strategy for improvement and stick to it. There are too many shifts in focus.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cypress Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) in September 2016.


    One phone interview and one onsite interview. The onsite interview included two 1:1 interviews, each 30 minutes, as well as a 30 minute panel interview, and an individual debrief/conversation with the hiring manager. The process takes quite a while for only having two rounds.
