    I have been working at Melexis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very international team, lots of opportunity to interact with people in different countries and cultures. Good opportunities to work on technical projects - good place to learn technical skills.

    Cons

    Very top down decision making style. Influence depends on personal relationship to top management (very political) and merit is not recognized or rewarded. Management decisions are also generally not transparent (although they are advertised to be.)

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say you are going to do.

    I worked at Melexis for less than a year

    Pros

    People are very friendly, everyone wants to help, overall feel is pleasant

    Cons

    HR function is antiquated and lacks sophistication. New hires are expected to learn on their own with no direction or training given. There is a HUGE disconnect with the way things are done in the US verse Belgium so for some it could be a big issue. Pay is sub-par for the area but the role was over exaggerated to begin with.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire higher level staff when all you want is old school low level person. Anyone with skills and knowledge would approach the HR function with drive and look at the whole picture and not narrow focus, and strive for partnerships at all levels by knowing the business not just the function. Segregation of staff due to function does not make a company it makes a bunch of sub cultures that do their own thing.
