I worked at FormFactor full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Hi Technology Company. A lot of hard working people, and in general do have a good team spirit

The company has been losing money for almost 5 years.
There has been many layoffs, and the morale is low

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to fing a way to improve the morale, otherwise the non voluntary attrition will hurt really soon.

    Pros

    people are generally nice and helpful.. the lab is very well prepared.. the cafeteria and the gym are very cool..

    Cons

    senior management is too busy to invest in their employees.. and the company has no direction.. it's very reactive to the competition..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to your employees.. invest in their learning.. share your vision with the engineering teams.. a little less politics would be nice..

    No opinion of CEO
