    Great company to work for.

    Manager (Current Employee) Cupertino, CA (US)

    ProsThe people are wonderful. The work is generally interesting. Company is well managed and has been stable for a long time. It has outlasted numerous rivals by being well managed. Compensation OK but not great. Benefits good.

    ConsToo much process. There are a lot of things that could be done much simpler than they are done. Human Resources is way more into process than it is productivity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind ways to cut processes down significantly.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mixed experience

    Firmware Engineer II (Former Employee) Shakopee, MN (US)

    Pros- Very organized HR policies
    - Clean building, nice infrastructure to work

    Cons- Too many useless processes at some sites, you are directly competing with engineers from other sites who dont have to go through all the processes and they can be more productive
    - if you are stuck in a team which does not get visibility at upper level, your career is doomed
    - dont recognize all the employees for hard work, only some

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are many hard working engineers working for promotion....its not their job to make themselves visible to you, its your job to give them what they deserve.

    Not bad

    Senior Staff Engineer (Current Employee) Shakopee, MN (US)

    ProsPay is decent and majority of workforce is top-notch. Technology is exciting and pace is fast.

    ConsExecutive management mostly is not helpful. Structural problems in many organizations limit improvements that can be made.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTie bonus compensation to what lower level employees receive. It makes no sense why VPs and above get multiple 10's of % bonus when employees get 1%. Move low performing directors out of their position and get people that want to make a difference in those positions.
