    I have been working at Rudolph Technologies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    A nice work environment.
    Good compensation, but no benefits(makes sense for an intern).
    You are given actual work and not just some testing work.
    Relatively flexible hours.

    Cons

    At first the projects being developed are a little hard to understand.
    Getting used to how they released their software seemed odd, but that could just be because that was my first time working as a software engineer.

    Great employees but not a place to build a career

    Pros

    Very easy going atmosphere and the engineering staff is a great group of folks. Flexible hours and opportunity to work from home on a limited basis. Great benefits with average compensation. Location provides easy access to major roads and avoids most of the traffic congestion. Internal office space was large with plenty of windows and furnishings were great.

    Cons

    Struggles with how to run a software organization. Disorganized priorities. Too dependent upon new customer business. Neglects existing customer needs. Too willing to cut corners. Unwillingness to listen to engineering experts. Treats employees as expendable. Micro manages without providing support. Below average salary compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorganize the local management and listen to the employees more. Some of them have many years of experience and are very knowledgeable about the products and their customers. Work with the engineers to develop a strategy that will result in a superior product.

    Pros

    Rudolpph Although is a small company, It has pleanty of equipment ( technology ) that you can learn and work with. The training experience I had was great even though the most you learn is on the road. At Rudolph there not such a thing as micromanaging, they offer on site positions as well as traveling positions.
    Its not hard to become proeficient because the knowledge is well share between all workers. Rudolph counts with a technical support team 24 / 7 that is always willing to help you out as a coworker or as a customer.
     If you are willing to relocate there will always be a position por you for the most part. The salaries in my opinion are competitive.

    Cons

    With the economy as it is there are a lot of cost cuting efforts unfortunatelly this means small raises and unless you would like to travel or moved to another city not much growth. Vacation time when an onsite position sometimes could pose a problem because there should be somebody covering the contract with the customer, but for the most part all of the supervisors / managers will work with you so you can enjoy the time off. This could be a downside or a plus for some people, sometimes there is plenty work to do that OT is necesary. Your shift could vary from compress to M - F with out a salary compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm really happy with managers ( no comment )

    Pros

    Exposure to cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    The semiconductor industry performance has been poor the past few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize job markets are not equal between locations. Retaining talent and loyality does require different approaches to operation and incentive other than a 'one approach fits all'.
