I have been working at Axcelis Technologies
Pros – The only reason to work for this company is to meet and work with some cutting edge technology, engineers and technicians.This was once a great company to work for .
Cons – Axcelis is mis-managed by a bunch of Butt kissing cronies who spend time covering up thier own inabilities to manage by blaming everybody else. This is a typical blame game company.
Advice to Senior Management – Grow up and stop blaming your work force for your inability to manage the best work force you will ever have. Stop outsourcing and get back to producing a product which was once the leader of technology. Start working for the customer instead of fighting amoungst individual organizations within the company. Start treating your vendors like partners.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Axcelis Technologies full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – A good collection of people in a lovely facility.
Cons – The leadership of the company is not respected or considered competent by its employees, by its customers, or by Wall Street. A dramatic change needs to occur if this company is to continue. Unfortunately, its more likely the company will be acquired or simply close up shop. It's downward spiral since it IPO continues.
Advice to Senior Management – While well intentioned and hard-working, you have had no success in over a decade. Since you seem unable to change what it is you do, fresh blood is required.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
