Easy job, don't really do much

A lot of politics

Advice to Management

Get a clue! People are leaving left and right. All you are going to be left with is your cheap labor.

    I worked at Atmel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Think the CEO gets a good idea on how to manage the organization.
    The Sales team did not request too much from support of other teams especially on the supporting teams.

    Cons

    Cannot see the HR function but a crowdy group.
    Not really an open door culture, beware of what you say!

    Advice to Management

    Please be more humanlistic! There are some people hit the conflict of interest in their positions. The internal audit has to invertigate it further and must find something. Cannot imagine the continuous expansion of supporting team with the downturn in the sales. Some people are overloaded and some people's main duties are gossipping. This organization used to be a good one or better but can see it's becoming worse due to the wrong hires recently. Strongly advise to review those staff performance with the 'Senior' in their position titles. Please be aware of the latest market no matter from the technology to the operational side, you will get a lot!
