re: Electronics companies falling down on the job: survey

AGK, I'd agree with Isleguard1, The sample taken was 800 people and would be fairly representative. It may be that disgruntled people are more likely to participate in surveys. And I'm sure Brian would confirm that this fairly informal survey would not be as statistically dependable as something done by Gallup or others. Nevertheless I DO think it gives a good picture of what a good percentage of the engineers of this world feel. They correspond in good part to my feelings, and though my answers might vary a bit from day to day, they would overall reflect the feelings of frustration I have with my current job. If nothing else, the survey indicates that there is a problem here worth further serious investigation, would you not agree?

That's great, many thanks Brian. I'll print an A4 sized one and stick it above my desk....and maybe a few other places at work...

The surveys DO provide an average lump sum of the "feelings" of the engineers. A handful of statistical outliers will not affect the outcome that much also not everyone woke up in a bad mood the day that the survey was taken (again statistical outliers not affecting the overall score much). You cannot have management "train" engineers to be satified. Every person is an individual and responds differently. Seriously, you cannot train job satisfaction. You can only provide information on expected outcomes and the people will determine for themselves if they are satisfied. Your comment to throw out the data because you believe it is wrong seems to be because you can't believe the results. Maybe it is you who is out of touch with the rest of the engineers. Almost all of the engineers here are not happy. BTW: Since you are trying to play this down, are you in the managment that people are complaining about??

David, your wish is my command. Check your email. I sent the JPEG and if you want to PSD file to play around with some more, just holler!

The survey gives us approximate or a unclear picture. Every time we see the survey reports there is a percentage change. This is because about 40 to 50% of the people have their moods changing in a short duration due to short of contentment feeling. So the surveys can not be taken into consideration seriously where as the management needs to train the employees into job satisfaction.

Interesting responses. I would like to see how this survey looks during the good times versus today's economy. I think the main reason engineers aren't treated well right now is because there are plenty out there looking for jobs.

Survey aside, Brian, I have GOT TO get a copy of the "Caution - Corporate Management Obstacles Ahead" graphic you used in the banner on the home page for this article - can you either send me a decent sized one or point me to where I can get one?? (I guess I could enlarge it and pretty it up, but why reinvent the wheel??) Thanks // David

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
