Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

Many learning opportunitiesJun 27, 2013 - Senior Business Planner in San Jose, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Never boring; constantly new challenges and work is definitely not confined to repetitive tasks. Employees are encouraged to keep learning and improving processes and procedures
Very demanding and is more suitable for young single professionals than people who require good work life balanceContinue reading

Look somewhere else for a jobAug 8, 2016 -RecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Most of the people are great and very reasonable to work with.
Absolutely no work-life balance. Benefits and salaries lag the industry, no 401k match. Penny pinch everything, cut corners and pretend to be a company that is disciplined and directed by their specs but most specs are either obsolete, incorrect or just ignored. The merger has been horrific and has resulted in the top talent in several areas to move on to greener pastures.Continue reading

after the takeoverOct 18, 2015 - Maintenance Tech in Austin, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
if you work in the fab then you might still have a job, if not then it's a crap shoot.
after the merger (takeover) morale is at a all time low. people are sad and unsure of the future and middle management doesn't seem to have any answers.

Hectic yet satisfyingJul 30, 2013 - Senior Product Engineer in Lynnwood, WARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook

Sinking shipFeb 15, 2016 - Senior Staff Electrical Design Engineer in Bloomington, MNRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The engineering teams are filled with smart people. The company is still lead by the founder who also happens to be a tech savvy engineer and business guru.
There is no room for advancement. There are too many high paid managers and not enough people doing the actual work. The pay is not competitive (20% under market). The benefits were never good, but in 2016 they are horrible. Management leaned too much on the stock plan to fill the compensation gap. Even before the recent decline the plan was basically worthless. Look at the CY stock history - it's been flat for 3 of the last 4 years - there is no growth here!Continue reading

Great Overworked PeopleJul 9, 2015 - Process Engineer in São Paulo, São PauloRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
At Cypress there is a great team atmosphere of people who are willing to assist if they can. The knowledge base is huge and there are a lot of intelligent people makinghuge and there are a lot of intelligent people makinghuge and there are a lot of intelligent people making tough decisions every day.
Even with all the knowledge, the company is crippled with the inability to think at growing into a company who is competing in the current industrial standard. State of the art products are ran on old machines that require constant maintenance to keep above 65% efficiency. Saving a $ is top priority, saving time and stress is not a priority. "Work smarter, not harder" is said but when the smarts come out, the ideas are crushed into long drawn out meetings that end with no real progress.Continue reading
