    Pros

    Bien pour commencer en tant que diplômé de premier cycle. Bon équilibre travail/vie privée. Collègues sympathiques, bonne situation, projets innovants et divers, promotion rapide car les gens brillants quittent rapidement la société.

    Cons

    De loin, la pire hiérarchie que j’ai eu à connaître : aucun respect pour les employés, qualité du travail non reconnue, mesquinerie : il faut se battre bec et ongles pour obtenir une augmentation de 1 %. Le service des Relations Humaines est non-professionnel et incompétent.

    Advice to Management

    Cessez de considérer les employés comme des singes à qui vous jetez des bananes. Récompensez leur talent au lieu de les faire partir. Occupez-vous des résultats concrets plutôt que de la politique.

    Former Employee - Principal Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    * Working environment is relaxed and comfortable
    * Compensation is very competitive to other companies with a good bonus on base salary
    * Could be a good place to learn and gain knowledge
    * Big company that can afford to tackle big markets and product lines
    * Did not lay off as aggressively as other companies during the recession

    Cons

    * Very political in terms of career advancement
    * European management is a disaster. No clear vision of what they want to do. Very slow in taking critical decisions. Can let valuable people leave the company easily.
    * There are good peers but also more than what could afforded of mediocre engineers

    Advice to Management

    When a product fails due to management mistakes, managers should be affected and not engineers. In order to compete with American companies change has to happen at the top.
