    ESI still has potential, but it needs to place higher value on it's best employees.

    I have been working at Electro Scientific Industries

    Pros

    Compensation & benefits are reasonable for this industry.

    Cons

    Very little job security in a downside market. Be prepared to be laid off (no matter what your level of seniority).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think nearly all the senior managers are all intimidated by the type of leadership of the CEO and therefore are afraid to confront him with innovative or different business strategies.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers.
    Flexible work (but long) hours.

    Cons

    No career growth.

    Rediculous performance evaluation process.

    No visibility on what to do next.

    Two kinds of managers: 1, the kind that makes flashy plans but cannot execute the plans. 2, the kind that just follows their bosses or acts as a middleman but provides no support.

    ESI has acquired a number of companies in the last decade, and the majority of them have been destroyed. The rest of these acquired companies have been signifantly down sized. None of the acquisitions have shown any business advantange in the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Are you really treating your people the way you say on the posters?
