Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Livermore, CA

I worked at FormFactor full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

One of the few high tech companies in the East Bay. Decent pay and benefits, however these are slowly being taken away due to the company not being profitable. Still some very good folks working there.

Cons

Poor management - they do not value long term employees and the skills they bring. Company has not been profitable for several years and it is an impact on company morale. There have been about 7 or 8 layoff's in the past 5 years. Jobs are not very secure as the company is always restructuring. Overtime is only paid after 10 hours for manufacturing personnel. Very poor engineering support of the manufacturing line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many senior level managers. Layoff's always affect manufacturing and engineering. It would be better to keep the more senior manufacturing people than to bring in new folks and layoff the ones who have helped to build the company.
