    I worked at International Rectifier full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The place has an environment that allows novice engineers to learn with some experienced engineers. Some of the managers are receptive and listen. The life/work balance is good. If you manage your workload and get your job done, nobody will bother you. The division possesses key players with solid expertise in the field and a well established mature process. Training is available to selected employees. Some people are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    There is an obsession with documentation which delays, frustrates and burdens. Some people just don't want to do their job or help, most notably IT. Some managers are too aggressive and not in the right direction. New ideas are not implemented because there is a process in place that cannot change. Some people that do not show abilities or are too argumentative are counterproductive to their colleagues and the division. Some managers will deflect assignments in their area of expertise. If you work too hard, you will not necessarily get patted on the back. Schedules and assignments are modified and what you have accomplished is useless at that point. Upper management does not have a clue what it takes to get stuff done because it doesn't come to see how it's done. All they care about is forecasts and numbers.
