Rough Management
Operations Analyst (Former Employee) –  KarnatakaAugust 1, 2017
The management is rough in their communication... do not expect Hi Hellos Please in your emails. The culture is so because of the last CEO who believed in a loud and aggressive precision questioning and answering methodology.
Pros
Stock plans
Cons
Aggressive and rough management

Senior Operations Analyst (Current Employee) –  Bangalore, KarnatakaMarch 10, 2017
The day in a life looks extremely busy. Very Challenging environment which respects logic, math and data.
The hardest part here is convincing the management and getting things done.
The most enjoyable part of this role is the freedom you get to work. You can use any tool, bring in any perspective. That's the best part.

Huge learning opportunities early on in your career
Product Marketing Engineer (Former Employee) –  BangaloreAugust 27, 2015
Cypress provides huge responsibilities early on in your career. It's great to learn so much and get an understanding of business early on. However, be prepared to take a hit on your work-life balance and getting drowned in processes and procedures. Nearly everything has a process which not only kills your time, but also your attempts to try something new after a while.
Pros
Good exposure, get to meet CXOs
Cons
Long hours, eat or be eaten attitude, job security

Productive but no career advancement or recognition
Applications Engineer, Staff (Current Employee) –  BangaloreJune 6, 2015
What I get to do (nature of the work) in Cypress is good. They are often challenging, esp, with little time at hand. However, a typical day in Cypress involves hustling with co-workers (most of them knowledgeable) and management to get work done.

Most of the key management roles are occupied by ex-memory designers. They have little understanding of how to put a MCU or other systems together. This reflects heavily on Cypress's non-memory products.
Pros
Highly technical and involved work, Flexible work timings
Cons
Micromanagement, Lack of clear product planning and execution
