Pros – The work is very Interesting.
Cons – Again, management has no class.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Very talented individuals working to provide a variety of metrology and manufacturing tools and software across the semiconductor manufacturing space.
Fun committee plans regular events for employees, BBQ, games, picnics, etc.
Cons – Lots of products across a diverse market space leads to more projects than can be completed in a timely fashion with the resources available
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – My immediate supervisor was extremely understanding
Cons – Harsh economic conditions created a lot of pressure on everyone at work.
Advice to Senior Management – Start a Q&A session where worker's concerns are addressed.
Pros – The Semiconductor industry is a fast paced environment. Rudolph Technologies has adapted well to the environment by being a nimble company. Rudolph has made some good acquisitions in this time - this has allowed for some good growth opportunities.
Cons – There is a little too much of a small company feel here - by this, I mean favoritism, promotions based on individual preferences, not always based on merit. The upper management is a little too absorbed in padding their own wallets rather than looking out for the interests of the employees.
Advice to Senior Management – More focus on pure product management, focused product development. Hire and keep employees and managers who have delivered results vs. managers and employees who spend time sucking up to higher management.
Pros – Known as one of the great companies to work for . Great and friendly HR, its policies and benefits. Really compassionate about employees and very few cuts even during the severest downturns. Lot of talented and friendly people to work with, over all great environment
Cons – Getting too ambitious in pursuit of beating KLA, too many acquisitions and mergers , unable to concentrate on core technologies, very few growth opportunities and prospects because the company is shrinking.
Advice to Senior Management – Need to be concentrate on core products and what the customer needs. Needs more control over customer support and provide more opportunities to talented individuals

Pros – Exposure to cutting edge technology.
Cons – The semiconductor industry performance has been poor the past few years.
Advice to Senior Management – 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'.
