Pros

Great technology. Exciting department. High growth rate. Colleagues are great.

Cons

All decisions made abroad, local management have no authority, local decision-making suffers from this.

Atmels management seems to be a "satisfy shareholders"-management. No wrong in that, but combined with the short-term thinking I think Atmel will suffer.

Atmel also fails in their employee policy. Many sites/offices around the world, maybe not always American policy is the correct one locally.

At the moment, during this big restructuring period, management not able to convince employees that they will succeed. Are they positioning Atmel for sale? Reduce cost seems to be the only goal, strategy seems very short-term.

Advice to Management

Learn how to make decisions, give feedback and stick to a strategy. Big bonuses to management when the company is struggling and employees salaries are low, is not a good thing.

    Pros

    De l'extérieur : la marque et une entreprise high-tech qui en jette.

    Cons

    De l'intérieur :

    Les méthodes et procédures sont dépassées.

    la politique de recrutement locale est collée aux lignes directrices de l'entreprise.

    Pas de perspective d'évolution, faîtes ce pour quoi vous êtes embauché, pendant des années et des années...
    La mobilité interne est un bon terme dans les réunions de communication mais n'est pas pratiqué.

    Les responsables opérationnels sont limités en terme de compétences (designers il y a 10 ans) et de responsabilisation.

    Advice to Management

    Possède une réelle politique RH. Prend soin de motiver les employés. Permet la mobilité interne.
