Awful place to work

Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee) Essex Junction, VT

ProsVery good co-workers, nice facility. Good place to learn about semiconductor manufacturing and test. Beautiful area of the country in Vermont. Management was good at giving people time off when needed.

ConsThe extremely negative atmosphere made it a very hard place to work. Everybody was stressed out about coming to work and wondering when, not if, the next layoff would occur and who was next on the chopping block. There is and was little to no upper progression for most. The supposed mentoring program was a joke. IBM Burlington is just about the only game in town with decent wages and they know it. Little to no acknowledgement of a job well done. Lack of communication. The type of business is very cyclical with many ups and downs. When the business is down, the first thing they do is get rid of people and equipment.

Advice to Senior ManagementIBM needs to remember that people are it's number one asset and to treat them accordingly. Structure the company to weather the ups and downs and to think more long term instead of short term.
