Good company culture, but the company was overly cheap, thus engineers needed to work long hours to overcome limitations of the equipment.
Support from management
Lots of VPs providing good support for their departments, but no single vision or plan
Teams work very well with each other.
Like most big companies the communication between departments was poor (but I've seen much worse).
Overall compensation for your work
When I started the compensation was low but the benefits were great. In 2007 the benefits were cut and the pay didn't change
Office / Work Environment
The equipment and design tools were old, but the working conditions were good and they acted quickly to fix problems.
The hours could be long, but there was no clock-punching, it was truly flextime. Some people would get to work very early, take a 3 hour lunch then work late into the night or take Wednesday off and work on Saturday
Even 8 years after the layoff people still get together for lunch.
They tried but the building are very old, thus what they did didn't look good
You know you were working on the cutting edge (using technology that was a few generations out of date)
Inclusive / Diverse
Suggestions for improvement
- Get all the people moving in the same direction and don't change your vision every year.
What I like about the company
Good flexible place to work
What I dislike about the company
Too many VPs
