    Electro-Optical Technician Intern

    Electro Optical Technician (Former Employee)
    Cambridge, MA

    Pros-Good environment with other young engineers
    -Always work to keep you busy
    -Friendly co workers
    -Nice perks and company events

    Cons-Excessive micromanagement (esp. in this department)
    -Mundane tasks from day to day
    -No clear goal besides get product out on time
    -Minimal career opportunities

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't worry so much about making sure your employees' are performing 100% everyday. Train them properly and trust that they will want to do a good job. The micromanagement is really over the top, and has a negative effect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company! Smart, fast-paced and technically challenging

    Scientist (Current Employee)
    Cambridge, MA

    ProsSome of the brightest people I have ever met and had the pleasure to work alongside. E INK started at MIT and still retains many MIT (and IVY league) graduates. Very, interesting technology that really captures the true essence of nanotechnology coupled with commercial success. People are quite friendly, and it is easy work on projects that one would be interested in working.

    ConsMoving away from Cambridge to Billerica will hurt the recruitment and retention of the best minds in Boston (and probably the world). The market size for e-readers has shrunk significantly due to tablets, and more marketing and new ideas needed fast. If you are looking to slow down, E INK might not be for you; it's very fast-paced, and energetic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNormalizing the technical capability to the size of E INK (~200 technical employees), this is probably one of the most technically superior companies in the world. However, the business development group is dismal. Hire many more people that are capable of finding new markets for E INK screens and new uses for capsules/mircocups. Diversify your products!

    E-Ink: A conservative 10+ year old startup

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosexposure to cutting edge technology, potential to revolutionize an industry, very intelligent co-workers, opportunity to shift roles, not too much bureaucracy

    Conssalary sub-par, conservative management, too much cost-cutting, new technology chasing old-fashioned customers, high dependence on asia operations without permanent staff there

    Advice to Senior Managementmust invest money to make money, need stronger marketing team, try to address the attrition problem, throw more events to build morale

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    it's a stable company with reasonable management and workload

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Hsinchu (Taiwan)

    Prosreasonable workload, kind bosses. it may not the one paying the most to me but it gives me a balance of work and life

    Consemployees here are not the most creative ones. they come to work, complete their own work and go home, which are the typical way of work...

    Good Tech, so so management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsE Ink is a very cool technology with great potential and there are a large number of great, smart, friendly folks who work there.

    ConsLittle communication from the top down. Odd fracturing between groups. Little company spirit. This is a company that needs some direction.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
