    Pros

    Strong technological know-how and presence.
    Well placed within its markets and market locations.
    Employees below middle management are motivated and hard working individuals.

    Cons

    Highly politically motivated upper management styles.
    Not team driven
    The Company is less and less innovative within its market
    Leadership style tends to be surrounding themselves with "yes" people
    Top executive management seems to be more elitist

    Advice to Management

    Innovate.....the competition is leading the market.
    The Supervisory board could be take a harder, more engaged, review and action(s) with the current direction of the Company, its products and its executive leadership. This should be done through independent outside resources.
    Trust your people.

    Pros

    Aixtron Genus has been floating for a long period, surprisingly.

    Cons

    Rigid and ignorant managers, and low salary and no bonus or nothing. Especially, ignorant managers will kill you.

    Advice to Management

    I don't give a damn.

    The ability to travel the world and visit multiple customer sites is nice.

    Pros

    Good team- focused- hard working

    Cons

    They work you to the bone. You have to fight for any raise. HR department operates on the premise that everyone is out to steal, lie, defraud the company! Where's the trust people?

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, be fair in your performance review process and increases. Reward your good people, not just the ones who are good at rubbing elbows w/the VP's
