“Avoid FormFactor until most of the executive staff has been removed and replaced with professionals.”
Pros – Close to home, decent benefits and pay.
Cons – Many. Amateur management. Review meetings are usually spent finding a victim and publicly humiliating that individual. Promotions and advancements are based on cronie-ism.
Advice to Senior Management – Promote staff based on performance, not who sucks up to whom. Also, be professional. There is NO reason the publicly dress down any staff member. There are waaaaay too many VP's for a small company. Remove at least half of them. Finally, remove Mario, Igor, Ben Eldrige, and one or two more from the payroll. They are the primary reason that FormFactor stock is in the tank.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
