A company with good bones, in need of new direction

Senior Manager (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

ProsOne of the only places in Silicon Valley where you can do scientific engineering work and be well paid. Capital equipment for semi and display is in a strong position that isnt' going anywhere soon. You may get lucky and be able to work on truly cutting edge stuff. Chance to impact future of semiconductor, display, or other technology world.

ConsOlder workforce and a lot of institutional inertia. Young people get chewed up quick and there are many layers of management that are pretty much useless. Many many directors and middle managers overseeing a small number of overtaxed engineers doing menial tasks.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry something different. The merger with TEL is a good start. Think bigger, though.

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