        I worked at Cypress Semiconductor full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        There are no pro's for this company.

        Cons

        No advancement opportunities, compensation is on the low end, no work life balance. Incompetent mgmt that takes no responsibility for their errors and resorts to daily harassment and bullying. Do not bother with HR, they will look the other way.

        I worked at Cypress Semiconductor full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        The culture at Cypress is finally changing but it is still too bureaucratic and process driven.

        Cons

        Too much process involved. Needs to be nimbler or else it will get left behind.

        Advice to Management

        Keep making culture changes before it is too late.

        Pros

        There are no pros: shamefully incompetent mgt

        Cons

        Incompetent mgt only looks at numbers: no interest in understanding the business, products, customers, etc. No hope for advancement, they don’t even have structure in place for it.

        Advice to Management

        Quit: it is the best thing you can do.
