Pros

Interesting and challenging work. Time off requests almost never denied. Friendly work environment. Ability to advance if you are assertive.

Cons

Must be very assertive to get a salary raise, or advance. Vacation time does not increase with more years of service. No vision coverage.

Advice to Management

Tendency to hire too many engineers/managers without projects to justify the need for the resource. Deadlines for projects often not based in reality. (Ie we have 4 weeks to develop a new device to impress a potential customer).

    Pros

    Great opportunity for over-time and great community. Also good for starting out career in the semiconductor field to boost your resume.

    Cons

    Hard to move up within the company. Pay is very low for this field. Managers aren't very good. Safety is poor.

    Advice to Management

    More safety procedures need to be put in place. Better pay is needed for all employees and more break time. Also they need to listen more to the advice of the workers.

    Pros

    I met one friend There was a pond outside you could walk around if you are able to squeeze the time in on your ridiculously short breaks

    Cons

    Sitting for 12 hours straight Half hour unpaid lunch and only 2 additional 15 minute breaks Managers are unenthusiastic and mostly uninvolved No room for advancement, they just move you around to different jobs but you're status will stay the same forever The tasks were tedious and hard on your body (ex. Looking through microscopes for 12 hours) Working with coworkers was like reliving highschool drama The training was disorganized and unhelpful I learned more from my coworkers than from management Upper management won't allow you to move to jobs that require more involvement and training if you plan on going back to college (personal experience) They are trying to expand the company and increase production but lack equipment and proper training Some days you'd have to "wait your turn" or fight over a microscope because coworkers would steal them from under you - Not enough equipment!! This would happen with chairs as well.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people enough to justify the torture they have to endure on a daily basis.
