I worked at FSI International

Pros

Good work/life balance
Relatively low stress
Interesting technology
Good technical talent pool

Cons

Concerns about long term viability in such a competitive industry. Many of their competitors use cheap labor (India, Vietnam, China, H1 visas) and are willing to push employees to the breaking point.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to show your appreciation for your (good) employees and respect for their for personal lives. Don't be afraid to push them a little when the business needs it.

    I have been working at FSI International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Majority of production staff are easy to get along with and will help out as needed. Decent schedule. Great 2nd shift production manager

    Cons

    The most important thing for this company is the almighty dollar. Upper management is more interested in profits than of spending the appropriate amount of money to develop excellent tools. They want you to volunteer to help with field work, but you have to pay for all travel expenses and then submit a bill for reimbursement. Who's got that kind of credit line sitting around when you are working and having to pay bills for a family. No thanks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you continue to build upon a constantly shifting base, your business will not survive. Pay the money to develop the tools, so they will work the first time when they hit the field.
