    Some good people that you will get to work with. The number is decreasing though.

    Too much jingoism and very top-down management. Poor benefits and value for employees.

    Culture needs to change to one that does not induce as much fear.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Cypress Semiconductor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very high visibility, significant responsibility and chances to contribute to the success of the company.

    Cons

    The effort is rarely judged by its intended or actual outcome; it is judged by its conformance to company rules; it is ok to fail as long as the rules are followed.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. I believe management knows what is needed. The question is whether they can risk looking bad in order to do what is right for the company.
