Not what it used to be working for Verigy

Principal R&D Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Advantest America full-time for less than a year

ProsGood benefits, outstanding 401(K), interesting design challenges

ConsWorking with Japanese culture is big shock for US workers. Japanese tend to be very rigid and rules driven.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvantest-Japan prides itself on not being on the forefront of the technology curve. Advantest cannot afford to continue with the extreme risk-adverse mindset, or the rapid market shifts will leave Advantest in the dirt.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
