Pros

Overall this is a fairly decent place to work. The pay is excellent for skilled positions and the benefits are average.

Cons

The biggest issue now is the loss of market share and inability to reverse that trend in the near future, if at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Step back and compare your company's current status compared to ten to fifteen years ago and take the necessary actions to turn this thing around. Make honest business decisions based on only business, not personal relationships.

    Until the layoffs hit, it was a great place to work.

    I worked at Hutchinson Technology

    Pros

    Had great internal, ongoing training system; middle management and below were great people; had great facilities (lunchroom, exercise room, work environment)

    Cons

    Upper management's vision failed in moving into flash drive production. "Buddy" system counted more for who got laid off than did quality or knowledge/education. Also too much thought into making big bucks for the stock holders than doing what is right ... however, no understanding as to why upper management continues to post raises and bonuses received with no remorse for those who don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of CEO asap and his personal buddies! Many, many wrong decisions in who was laid off and who was kept ... it just might be too late to recover! Need to think QUALITY, need to go back and find the HUMAN quality again.
