I have been working at Axcelis Technologies full-time for less than a year

Pros

1)Great Technology
2)Great Co-Workers
3)Lots to learn

Cons

1)Average Base Pay , No Bonus offered , Pay may not meet the industry standards for your work experience
2)Very little to No Annual increment . ( may be about 2 %)
3)LayOffs every year . So high job instability due to the nature of the semiconductor industry.
4)No Recognition offered for work done
5)Very little scope for automation
