    I worked at Rudolph Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The CEO built this company through well thought out acquisitions. The people are like a big family. The CEO is brilliant and commands an audience with investors and customers and this has made the company strong.

    Cons

    The semiconductor equipment market is not for the faint of heart as it's very cyclical. That being said, Rudolph has a balance of offerings in the front and back end and this helps smooth things out some as these markets have offset cycles (again brilliantly crafted by the CEO). One downside is that the CEO is well past normal retirement age and will have to hang it up in the not too distant future. There are no viable internal candidates to take over although the COO might be considered but he is an entrepreneurial software R&D person at the core and has little outside experience and wouldn't fare well on the street side of being CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and strategy execution. Strengthen the senior management bench to support the upcoming CEO transition

Rudolph makes process control metrology equipment that monitors these layers to ensure that the material doesn't get too thick or too thin. Its inspection equipment (around half of sales) looks for defects not obvious to the human eye, such as tiny scratches or gouges in the surface of a silicon wafer. The company sells to some 90 semiconductor... More
