    Pros

    Flexible working time, working from home allowed, carpool service offered, totally no stress environment, opportunity to join sporting events sometimes

    Cons

    Very bad and poorly skilled management, low cost instruments and both hardware and software tools are used, a lot of closed minded local people

    Try to invest money hiring good managers, try to give a bit more international look and behavior to your local people

    Pros

    You can really move something
    Developing company and structures
    You get chances if you work hard and show the right attitude
    Focus on development of people, many trainings (internal and external)

    Cons

    Many departments w/ too low manpower for work at hand (120 % workload only w/ A, B Prios)
    Big amount of value can not be generate due to the limited personal ressources, every additional task goes against core business activities

    Advice to Management

    Check where you can lift the most value, evaluate the needed vs. available ressources and put them in place. Company is growing so it is easz to move them to other departments when the job is done

    I worked at Melexis (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Highly dynamic culture with no shortage of talented engineers. Melexis is a strong company that knows how to design products that win.

    Cons

    Advancement relies heavily on internal politics. Difficult to advance if you haven't made the favorites list.

    I have been working at Melexis full-time

    Pros

    A lot of benefits included in a attractive salary package. e.g. Smartphone to every employer, extended medical package, numerous and various clubs paid by the company, etc.

    Very interesting and attractive work environment, with colleagues from different countries and different age group, everyone eager to help you out and to share their knowledge with you.

    Not speaking Bulgarian? NOT a problem everyone is speaking flawless English. (I'm not Bulgarian)

    Having no or little experience!? The various training sessions and special programs for new comers will definitely help you out, boosting your experience and knowledge in a enjoyable manner.

    Enthusiast about travelling to other countries!? This is the place for you, there are internal programs that you will enjoy by travelling to other sites and knowing your colleagues from other branches or building your experience by working a few months along your colleagues in other country.

    A lot of interesting projects, technologies and challenges to face with every day and many opportunities to grow professionally are offered in Melexis.

    Cons

    None at this time!

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people!
    Keep encouraging and facilitating changes between different job positions/ sites/ for every employer!

    I have been working at Melexis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    International company likes to hire college grads willing to work cheap and lots of hours. Great place to start, or get citizenship to your host country. Products and technologies are decent. With luck, a few may actually do well in the next several years.

    Cons

    The ownership is very cliquey, and this is reflected throughout the management hierarchy, ridiculous project schedules, unspoken expectations for long hours, only way to move up is to suck up. Merit pay is based on things beyond the average person's control, and reviews are only good if you're helping your manager look better than they are (most are pretty bad at their jobs, here). Everyone I've met, seems tired of bad management. HR is horrible, and in some cases, given full site management authority (even over Engineering!). . A few saving products, could make this a more profitable company over the next few years, but after that, kaput!

    Advice to Management

    Reign-in your middle management. They're making us crazy.
