A great company to work for if you can handle the boom and bust nature of the semiconductor industry.

Process Engineer (Current Employee) South Portland, ME

ProsFairchild allows for a good work/life balance with managers being flexible with hours and schedules to accomodate outside work activities. Most people enjoy working there and due to several rounds of layoffs there are almost no bad attitude employees remaining. Everyone is easy to get along with and the work is fast paced and challenging.

ConsDue to the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry, periodic layoffs, shutdowns, furloughs etc. seem to come on an every 2-3 year cycle. Due to the low rate of turnover there are not a lot of opportunities for career advancement that become available.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement at times is too involved in the day to day operations. Step back and work on the big picture and allow the front line workers to do their job.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
