    I worked at Microchip Technology

    Pros

    The fact that Microchip has a commissionless sales force leads to a very collaborative working life. Information and leads are shared and people work together to help a customer. Political games, at least among the engineers in the UK, were minimal. It felt like a meritocracy. Management is very approachable and anyone can talk to anyone about ideas, all the way up to Steve Sanghi. Internal hiring was highly... valued.

    Cons

    Like many multinationals, it can be quite slow on the uptake of new ideas. The guiding values did not always feel like they were being lived up to. Many times, a move to another country was necessary for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those on the front lines when developing strategies, especially for new directions.
