    I have been working at Aviza Technology


    The team is truly interested in working together and creating the best tools possible. Great people, and a wonderful location to work, just minutes from the beach and parks.


    The semiconductor tool industry swings are hell on profits and product development, leading to a high degree of job insecurity. In addition, the company intends to move from Scotts Valley to somewhere in the silicon valley, making all too real the prospect of the hellish commute over 17 and no way to plan where to live if you wish to buy a home meanwhile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the company in Scotts Valley, many of the best people will leave as soon as the move is made.

Aviza made atomic layer deposition (ALD), chemical vapor deposition (CVD), and physical vapor deposition (PVD) gear. These machines deposit semiconductor materials in precise layers onto microchip wafers. It also made equipment used to etch circuit patterns on wafers and specialized furnaces used in microchip production. Aviza filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2009; later that year it sold the majority of its assets and certain of its subsidiaries to Surface Technology Systems plc (STS), a subsidiary of Sumitomo Precision Products (SPP), for about $60 million.
