    Two many monkeys at the control room.

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee) Warren, NJ

    ProsBonuses and salaries are good when compared to others in the same industry.

    Cons- Lack of technical competence and vision from the CTO down to the lowest level of management.
    - Anybody can easily become either a chief scientist or a vice-president if you know the right people.
    - Lots of managers without the proper academic credentials heading very challenging programs.
    - Poor benefits
    - A lot more managers than engineers developing products.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDecrease the level of layers management and increase your product development workforce.
    Hire senior management with respectable and "relevant" academic credentials.

    Anadigics needs to improve a lot

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Warren, NJ

    ProsVery nice people. Very knowledgeable employees. Reasonably good pay compared to similar companies.

    ConsMedical benefits are one of the worst. Bonus offered in terms of stock.
    The fab is like a lab. There are too many "experts" who do not document anything and work on their own terms. Process Engineers operate like unionized blue collar workers. Too many changes at the top and employees have learnt to ignore management as a result. New Jersey is the wrong place to build a fab. Cost is high. Labor force is one of the worst. Quality consciousness is nil. If Anadigics continues this way, they will not survive against their competitors who have a much more disciplined and higher quality fabs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is too much power vested with Human resources dept. Operations gets punished every time. It is time this power base is balanced.

    Disappointing to work in an environment which lacks good leaders.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompetitive salary and decent benefits (only when times were good!), less stressful work environment. Helpful and good people to work with.

    ConsLacking good leaders, no clear direction by management, no structure, no defined processes, lack of pro-activeness, decisions made without data.

    Inner circle

    Senior Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee)

    ProsFinancial Compensation, relocation Package, diverse work force (met a lot of interesting people from different countries)

    ConsToo many silos, lack of trust between departments, "inner circle" people very difficult to interact with. They are allowed to rule the roost and do whatever they want with no consequences. The fab is old fashioned and there is a lot of manual activity. Needs to be upgraded and fitted with more automation. Poor production methods and less focus on quality. Fab engineers "unionized" against management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBuild consensus and team spirit within the company. Do not allow a few individuals to wield too much power. Stabilize middle and senior management instead of making "walking managers out" a fashion! Bring HR managers who actually understand technology.
