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

    Pros

    I was a tech in San Jose and was a number 500 something and one who still has the gold eagle coin. TJ Rogers was aggressive but fair. Work was plenty!

    Cons

    I can't think of any

    Be like it was back in 86'

    Tons of hours, good pay, experience in semiconductor industry. Management is easy to get along with.

    Schedule is terrible. Maybe shift the schedule, and arrange like polar semiconductor.

    Maybe shift the schedule to Thursday-Sunday and Mon-Thursday.

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

    Pros

    8-6pm work schedule
    Excellent people: worried about the overall health of the company instead of cranking out a million power point foils to make themselves look good. Honest hard working and commented.
    Everything is visual via the memo system: nice for a new ncg

    Cons

    Company is large and many people calling into meetings from around the world even on routine meetings, makes office in san jose seem quite and non busy - however this is not true

    I have been working at Cypress Semiconductor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working in an ultra high tech company presents lots of challenges but when you are surrounded by smart hardworking individuals anything is possible.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is difficult to see the difference between whats important and what is urgent.

    Advice to Management

    People, people, people they are your best asset make sure they know it and they are appreciated. I once read "Employees who feel valued gladly will compete in the race, overtake the competition, cross the finish line first, and end up on the medal stand."

    I have been working at Cypress Semiconductor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding compensation, great people, challenging projects, cutting edge technology, great opportunities for NCG's to grow their technical toolbox, very strong marketing team

    Cons

    Upper management struggles with critical decision making. Constant re-organization - I've had no less than 10+ managers in the 10+ years working here. Cutting edge technology divisions are struggling financially. Sales and Marketing team is way too lean.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify - don't put all your eggs in one giant basket.
