    I worked at Hutchinson Technology full-time (more than 10 years)


    Relaxed worked environment but still focused on results. Good pay and benefits. Excellent place to work while it was growing, unfortunately it has been shrinking for the last 8-10 years.


    Several critical decisions caused the company to contract. I think these could have been avoided by better decision making. At times management seems arrogant which is what got them into trouble with key customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
