    I have been working at Cypress Semiconductor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced work with good benefits and flexible schedule. They put all the tools to succeed at your finger tips.

    Cons

    Longer than average work hours per week. Schedules are rather short and the guidance for the training for tools is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to refine training
