    Pros

    Competitive salary, resulting in talented and motivated co-workers. This company targets high tech work and takes good care of their talent.

    Cons

    As a multi-national conglomerate, it can be difficult to figure out solutions to problems. Also, help can take a while, as communications are somewhat silo'd. All in all, everyone tries to be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see management work a little harder at bridging the communication gap with employees.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at M+W U.S. in March 2012.

    Interview

    There was one face-to-face interview then the hiring decision was made. It was about six weeks from interview to offer and about two weeks from offer to start date. Although there were three people in three different states involved in the hiring process, it went fairly smoothly. The hiring manager was in the Phoenix, Arizona office. The HR person who put the offer together was in the Plano, Texas office. The HR person I spoke with for salary negotiation was in the San Francisco, California office.

    Interview Questions

    • You are in charge of designing a new silane system at a client's site; what questions would you ask the client?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    After I received the offer, I asked that the salary be increased by 3% which the company agreed to. I should have asked for even more to find and get paid the company's upper limit for me in my position.
