I have been working at ATMI

Pros

Good benefit and competitively higher pay rate comaparable to other company locally.

Cons

Director's backgroud is from marketing with little knowledge in managing or technical making decision. Poor direction and judgement on where the group should be leading them to failures. Ignore Sicentist Advisers and Techincal Leads advises causing projects to miss milestones and deadline. Group's morale is at the lowest but show no acknowledgement. Lack of understanding of company's policy causing confusion in the group on what to do. People are leaving the group and or looking for other opportunities within or outside of the company. Step up when there is an opportunity to take credit for the works but step down when there is responsibility to be taken. Upper managment seeing the problem but remains silence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Restructure. Hire the right people for the right job. Stop giving jobs to people who do all the talk but can't do the talk

    Pros

    used to be a fun place to work. Good direction and clear career path. Personal improvement was one of the main goals. Work hard and get rewarded.

    Cons

    Many had left the group due to incompetent director who has no leadership and managing skills. Can’t make good judgment or follow though with a decision which set the team up for failures. Break up the group instead of pulling them together as a team. Kiss up to move up mentality. Mistreat and disrespect people who work under, especially colleagues. For those who still in the group are looking for a way out. Many wonder when will the higher up see the and fix this ongoing problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look within the organization and get rid of the hypocrites to grow to a stronger core competence company.

    Pros

    Provides opportunity such as six sigma training, conference visits to keep employees updated with latest and greatest in technology.

    Conducts innovation symposium, annually, to foster innovative ideas and a channel to share knowledge

    Values IP, R & D as tools for growth and therefore invest generously in these activities.

    Cons

    Very concerned about wallstreet ~ therefore, can be hasty in hiring/ firing employees.

    High turn over of employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work promoting IP and R&D activities. Always great to hear the direction in which company is moving.

    If possible, please hold onto employees even if it means a short downfall in stock price.
