    Pros

    Each day brought different challenges. Great coworkers made the job easy and enjoyable. Overall all departments worked well with each group.

    Cons

    Communications between the factory and field service could be better. Semiconductor industry is very cyclical which sparks cost cutting and layoffs. Layoffs every year.

    Listen to your employees in the field.

    Good people; enjoyable atmosphere; challenging assignments.

    Cons

    Consistent lay offs for several years. They lose money nearly every quarter and they cannot go on like this very long.

    Advice to Management

    The equipment made is good, but they are not selling it. Focus on sales. The equipment speaks for itself.

    I worked at Axcelis Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of talented people there to work with. Interesting technology. Has made a large investment to revamp its product offerings.

    Cons

    Has been in cost cutting mode for a couple of years. Semiconductor industry subject to big swings up and down. Axcelis fell behind in its product technology and is trying to get its newest offerings accepted by the market place. The jury is still out.

    Advice to Management

    Current president has been in place for a number of years and the company is still struggling. BOD has to decide if it is time to make a change.
