    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Historically, they've treated their employees with respect and fairness under the management of Pasqualli Pistorio. They've respected the environment and tried to enact policies to protect it and recycle anywhere possible. The company has been an aggressive leader in this respect. One of the top ten Semiconductor companies in the world.

    Cons

    They are divesting their American manufacturing operations and moving everything overseas to China and Singapore. There will be no more manufacturing operations in the United States when this is completed. The target date for completion is June 2009, but it could come much sooner.

    Advice to Management

    The new CEO is in my opinion, untried and moving to divest or consolidate most of their manufacturing base. I would advise him to not rely too heavily on one success road-map. The off ramp may not be what or where you're you're expecting it to be. I think entirely giving up the U.S. presence is a mistake that will be paid for later.

    Pros

    healthy work environment, laid back take it easy eurpoean mentality, I haven't worked anywhere else but i hear benefits and pay are pretty competitive.

    Cons

    management seems to lack direction, difficult to gain visibility for work done, dysfunctional and confusing organization with lots of overlapping functions.

    Advice to Management

    get away from the penny pinching attitude, most frequent travellers still don't have data cards and smart phone data plans. Emplyees are still forced to fly economy on 20+ hr flights to asia

    Pros

    the benenfits are great and the pay is excellent, and the work is very stimulating and challenging and usually pleasant.

    Cons

    Employees are required to take 7-8 days of vacation every quarter to reduce cost liabilities, It is impossible to use the 3-4 weeks you have earned to take one long and well-earned relaxing vacation. This policy causes stress and is unhealthy. Nobody likes this policy.

    Advice to Management

    I realize the company has our European business climate, but to do business in the USA, we have to support our American colleagues who are tasked to do that business in the U.S. customers' expectations. An example of how we are not adequately supporting that business model is: months of work by the salesman and marketing engineer can be lost because someone has to wait a week or more to get information because in the factorys, this happens mostly in France and Italy, Engineer A is on holiday and refers to Engineer B, and Behold! Engineer B is also on holiday and their OoO reply says to refer to the Engineer A. Then at escalation the manager is also on holiday or does not have the info, or some other issue, even to high management, and the action languishes for a week or more and the otherwise sale is lost because the customer's engineer got tired of waiting and called a competitor having plants and engineers in the USA, and got services immediately for the same kind of questions on the competing direct replacement part. We must not continue to allow the customers' engineers to wait for service and lose business because our European business culture is not delivering to the expectations to USA customers. In my division we have lost several high profit opportunities because we are not do a good job on this, and we cannot blame the Americas sales and marketing force. They are on-the-spot for us, but we have to adapt and improve our delays.

    Pros

    Salaries and benefits were very good and hard to meet or beat in any other employer

    Cons

    Decisions by top senior management to totally close the manufacturing function let over 2,000 employees go and sent the work to Singapore. Thanks sooooo much. So much for career stability.

    Advice to Management

    Get a long term strategy for the company and try to stick with it.
