I have been working at Fairchild Semiconductor full-time

Pros

Very smart people at Fairchild (lots of engineers). Definitely learn a lot from them. Plenty of opportunities to travel as well.

Cons

Not for the faint of heart. Semiconductor companies always seem to be either hiring or firing. Hopefully the new leadership this past year will remove some of the other cons.

Advice to Management

Make the same travel rules for ALL employees.

    Seriously analyze the effects of short-term cost cutting measures that affect long-term results! People are your most valuable resources.
