    Overall ok, need better strategic direction from management to direct the hardwork to meaningful results

    Process Engineer (Current Employee) Livermore, CA

    ProsIndependence and flexibility to work, opportunity to be involved in multiple areas, lot on learning in a quick time and more challenges

    ConsGood work not always gets credit, politics and finger pointing increased over years, used to have many good people, but mostly have left, talking skills dominate over actual output in career growth. Too many layoffs and company not making profit for last 5 years

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed better focus of goals from management and better channeling of efforts and appreciate good work on merit basis. The bureaucracy needs to be reduced. Business model needs to be reassessed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Intern Review

    Intern (Former Employee) Livermore, CA

    ProsI worked on many projects. Being an intern kept me busy and my mentors treated me as an employee rather than an intern. And no there were no coffee or printing assignments.

    ConsWork was slow in the start ... you need to ask for more work

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeace!
