    Employees wear many hats and work hard, but management decisions are questionable, at best.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsChallenging environment. From a technical perspective, I have worked on a broad array of projects and learned a lot. Great work, good pay and decent work life balance.

    ConsManagement decisions are slow to reality and cause excessive losses to pile up before they decide that things are going bad and that they need to cut back. Then, by the time they cut back, the business turns around and they need to ramp up again and they are slow to ramp up and lose business because they can't ramp fast enough. Then, it cycles again. Never ending.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake decisions more quickly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A very good job in a bad location

    Research Scientist (Current Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsThe R&D team is very strong and most people know what they are talking about. The managers are efficient and helpful.

    ConsThe area the company is located is in the middle of nowhere. It is even difficult to find good food for lunch. The companies financial status is not stable and this job is not secure.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    tough times ahead in US and Europe

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Proswell paid especially given location
    good people
    interesting work

    Consvolatile field and difficult to predict future
    it is not clear if MEMC will continue to be a major player in semi field
    MEMC has taken a markedly different direction recently by moving upstream in solar - which parts will it keep/shed/grow?
