    Pros

    This company has a good product that everyone wants and need, thus business is consistently good, thus rarely have layoffs. Good working conditions.

    Cons

    I observed their system operated with favoritism, making it hard to excel, get a raise
    and grow. Training given to favorites only!

    Advice to Management

    HR department needs improvement, need to hire both males and females not only one of the two.

    Pros

    People is very competitive and self - motivated , easy to work as a team, option to work from home,

    Cons

    Micromanagement, sometimes expect your boss yell or talk to you disrespectful with the excuse of being normal in their culture. Change priorities for one minute to another leaving you with 100 projects halfway finished. Benefits are getting worst every year.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention of personal rotation

    I worked at Lumileds full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Legacy of innovation from HP roots with products most-copied by competitors.
    Fast-paced work, technically challenging, exposure to broad markets
    Dedicated working-level team members, collaboration across global locations

    Cons

    Deeply political and narcissistic management failing to recognize and promote the real talent.
    Finance-driven shortsightedness prohibits meaningful investments with longer term ROIs.
    Continually marketing product that is not ready for production, failing to meet delivery and performance commitments to customers which stresses the operations organization and destroys hard-won customer relationships.
    Truly horrendous HR that fails at practically every basic HR role

    Advice to Management

    Finance guys: get the hell out of the way and let Engineering Seniors with real industry experience call the shots. Meet your commitments to customers!
    Focus on what's needed to EARN revenue, not on counting and forecasting. Less discussion and more action...make decisions in a formal way, then GO (stop second-guessing decisions already made).
    Establish world-class and full-service HR to attract and retain talent as well as to trim away the dead-wood.
    Uproot ethnic nepotism that exists in certain key departments. (need strong HR)

    Pros

    excellent pay and nice benefits

    Cons

    very passive aggressive executive management team and culture. No clear direction or strategy. Main focus is profitability and not with fixing the upside down cost model and operational issues. Behind in technology with no desire to invest dollars or resources to provide Industry leading products. It's all about the race to IPO..... take the money and run attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Drain the swamp and make Lumileds great again.
