    Pros

    Great place to learn and to gain experience. There are always new challenges waiting to be taken on. Hardly ever a dull moment. Benefits and 401k matching are very good.

    Cons

    Underpaid for the volume of work expected
    There is more management than people doing work
    Documentation is almost non-existent causing repeated issues and everything is tribal knowledge

    Advice to Management

    Management is disconnected from employee's needs. Additional human resources and equipment are needed to do our job properly. Do not punish the hard workers because of the lazy workers

    Pros

    Management is mostly hands off but watchful, funding is plentiful, and having the resources to do your job are there. Hard work may be rewarded, and flexibility is honored.

    Cons

    Massive corporate overlord in Germany makes slow and clumsy decisions. IT loads bloated spyware on every piece if electronics you use. Connectivity and ease of access within the company is a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting International Rectifier employees. You're losing your key talent.

    Pros

    Good work life balance depending on your manager. Salary is average. Depending on your division you can work with some amazing people.

    Cons

    Upper management not the brightest. Working for a German company has many levels of be procedures and fluffy company slogans to preach. Propaganda. Besides this nonsense it's a good company. Being in America is not truly corporate America. You are a yes man to the HQ but if you are an average achiever you will do well

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. Trust employees to do their job and enable them to do so. Set them up for success. There are many smart people looking to leave at the moment. Sad to see this going on.
