    I have been working at Cypress Semiconductor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. I am in love with the work in Circuit Design Team 2. Best of the minds in the industry to learn from 3. Very Challenging work, makes you learn a lot. 4. Responsibilities and relations you build within the team. 5. location is good, nearby areas are government quarters and some affordable housing colonies. 6. Everything needed for a sustainable living is in the vicinity.

    Cons

    1. One of the most important factor along with the good work is remuneration, Its significantly lower than the industry. 2. Interdepartmental and inter business unit politics is at peak, so a new graduate or a new hire at the same designation will be having more salary than you. 3. huge difference between promotions and annual hikes between circuit designers and digital designers/verification engineers. 4. Very less facilities, Bad cafeteria, Too much cost cutting. 5. Dustbins are removed, pantry doesn't have coffee vending machines but a dedicated guy to prepare and fill in a jug. 6. people can eat your snack/cake/pastry from fridge thats not a very good thing coming from professionals. 7. They organised a complete company snack party for 600 people in <20 rupee and tried even lower according to a close committee member.

    Advice to Management

    Even after repeatedly asking for better rise from past few years, Managers have told that its out of their hands. Please look into it. Its really demotivating. Please see that you have been interviewing for almost 8 months and getting no-one on board.
