    Cons

    Middle management are worst and are misleading the higher management

    Advice to Management

    CEO is more supportive and understands the talents in her employees better but should work on a 360 degree feedback and not give too much power to middle maangement

    I worked at Melexis for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Highly dynamic culture with no shortage of talented engineers. Melexis is a strong company that knows how to design products that win.

    Cons

    Advancement relies heavily on internal politics. Difficult to advance if you haven't made the favorites list.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Melexis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    International company likes to hire college grads willing to work cheap and lots of hours. Great place to start, or get citizenship to your host country. Products and technologies are decent. With luck, a few may actually do well in the next several years.

    Cons

    The ownership is very cliquey, and this is reflected throughout the management hierarchy, ridiculous project schedules, unspoken expectations for long hours, only way to move up is to suck up. Merit pay is based on things beyond the average person's control, and reviews are only good if you're helping your manager look better than they are (most are pretty bad at their jobs, here). Everyone I've met, seems tired of... bad management. HR is horrible, and in some cases, given full site management authority (even over Engineering!). . A few saving products, could make this a more profitable company over the next few years, but after that, kaput!

    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 have been working at Melexis full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Freedom - flexible - great colleagues - nice offices - personal development options

    Cons

    None I could think off.... Well, maybe a little better wage, but it's still quite ok (VP qualification could be a bit more realistic)

    Advice to Management

    When things don't go well, don't cut to much in allowed (team) expenses as it will also affect the work joy for people... For the rest...keep on going!!
