Pros

Close to home, decent benefits and pay.

Cons

Many. Amateur management. Review meetings are usually spent finding a victim and publicly humiliating that individual. Promotions and advancements are based on cronie-ism.

Advice to Management

Promote staff based on performance, not who sucks up to whom. Also, be professional. There is NO reason the publicly dress down any staff member. There are waaaaay too many VP's for a small company. Remove at least half of them. Finally, remove Mario, Igor, Ben Eldrige, and one or two more from the payroll. They are the primary reason that FormFactor stock is in the tank.

    Pros

    Technology is very good and unique, work in general is interesting and dynamic, very talented and capable technical people. Although work load may not allow it at present, management is supportive of work-life balance as a principal. Fundamentally in a good niche market with high long term potential

    Cons

    Scrambling to regain market share, many parallel technical efforts being pushed without adequate staffing and resources - too hectic and dynamic. Attrition is getting to be high, and in a place where systems are not in place, that is a significant loss of know-how, making it difficult for the persons remaining to carry on. Company grew too fast for its own good. Company prefers to getting outsiders (from more established companies) for key leadership positions rather than growing employees from within.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more customer friendly, Develop and promote from within, Invest in systems to reduce inefficiencies and costly errors. Develop competency in other areas in addition to spring technology.


  2. Simple and friendly work environment
