"This was a very good company to work for. I had been there just a month when I was invited to the Christmas party. Free drinks, food and games at Dave and Busters. The work was interesting and challenging. Supervision was light and companionable. There was a strong reliance on standards delineated in the company internal standards web site. A very, very good company to work for."

"Great people to work with. However, work environment is employee hostile with restrictive HR policies like lack of flexible working hours, inability to carry over vacation days across years, etc. Too many processes and hence lack of agility."

Director of Marketing
in San Jose, CA

"I have worked for Cypress for 8 years. The company employs around 3000 people. The company employs state of the art business process and provides challenging work in the field of embedded controllers and SOC's. Heavy reliance on process tends to slow things down a bit, but the environment is similar to other semiconductor companies."
