I worked at Intematix as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Intematix is a company that primarily refines phosphor for LED applications. When I worked for the company in the ChromaLit division, the R&D group was very small, consisting of three physicists, one mechanical engineer, one manufacturing engineering, and a handful of technicians. The group's objective was to replace current lighting technology (incandescent and fluorescent) with LED lighting. The group was small enough to take on almost any customer's requests to net an income.

Cons

This company is a smaller, and thus offers fewer benefits to employees and provides less job security. The ChromaLit department is a little bit haphazard and does not have fantastic documentation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investing in top executives from large and successful corporations does not make you a large and successful corporation. It is a small company with lots of growing pains. Focus on employee retention by helping them refine their current skills and develop new ones as well. As one employee leave hiring a new member because they are already stretch thin. Getting another executive will only add too their workload.

    I worked at Intematix full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. Company are full of talented engineers to work with and readily offers a helping hands.
    2. Great people to work with.
    3. Challenging work and flexible schedules.

    Cons

    1. Focus on short versus long term goals, quick results, and the metrics for upper management center on accounting versus engineering.
    2. Management is designed to serve themselves at the expense of engineers. Executives care more about their bonuses than employee benefits.
    3. Meetings are extremely long sometimes up to 2 and 1/2 hours without focus.
    4. Way too much favoritism for people from certain nationality especially Chinese.
    5. The one thing that stands out the most was the overall unprofessional senior upper management. (CEO can't even say hello back to you when you greet him, no respect at all).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. If you want long term success you need to show more employee loyalty, eventually you will find out when it is too late that your best talent has gone somewhere else and you are no longer competitive.
    2. Screwing people won't make the company more successful, by giving advanced notice for lay-off.
