    I have been working at Infineon Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Infineon Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people in the Americas. Fun atmosphere. Acquired International Rectifier, trying to be more nimble in the US and globally. Large revenue base globally with very diversified and stable business.

    Cons

    Very large infrastructure with strict process orientation. This leads to slow deliberate decision making and permanent commitments. Infineon is slow to react to new market opportunities and seems to be stuck as a market follower.

    Advice to Management

    In order to be more responsive and global, Infineon needs to reduce the centralized organizations and distribute more of the decision making/allow risk taking in the regions. Currently, they are voicing an interest in doing this but the progress is limited.

    Pros

    Many nice individual contributors to work with.

    Cons

    No room for career advancement. The culture is rigid and bureaucratic like many big corporates. German management style slows the process and allows low regional autonomy.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize and respect the local talents. Local management should act like local instead of totally adopting the European style.

    Pros

    They pay well, but they are very inefficient within their accounting department. There is not enough to do generally and you will have to find things to do.

    Cons

    The accounting functions have been outsourced and there are just a small skeleton crew working to link up with the accounting department in Portugal. The time difference can be a nightmare to get things finished.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more contact and accessibility with employees.

    Pros

    The working environment is life balance promoting. People are great to work with and for and management develops employees to their fullest potential. The work is meaningful and you feel like you're apart of the overall team and end result.

    Cons

    Growth potential is limited. Only so many directors exist, so most end at middle management. People don't generally leave the company to leave vacancies for promotions.
