I worked at MEMC Electronic Materials

Pros

The actual employees, and generally first line supervisors, are all decent folks. Benefits (insurance, etc) were not too bad and the salary was competitive.

Cons

The regular shutdowns and forced PTO meant that it was crazy to go on vacation.

There was a complete lack of growth opportunity at MEMC, other than perhaps for some of the engineers But overall things were so bad that nobody advanced, nobody's career grew, nobody learned anything.

It boils down to total mismanagement by Nabeel and the upper management.

MEMC is just a horrible place to work overall. STAY AWAY.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great job saving MEMC from bankruptcy, but don't you think it's time to ease up a bit?

    I worked at MEMC Electronic Materials full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Some managers are helpful and accommodating.
    - Bare minimum tools are provided for the job but accuracy of the tool is not good enough.

    Cons

    - Some vendors takes a long time to solve problems and some even can't. Management will not allowed to change vendors unless can source a cheaper vendor.
    - Need to work on weekends and even on holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kindly promote healthy work life balance.

    I worked at MEMC Electronic Materials

    Pros

    Salaries are at or above the industry average. Benefits are comparable or better as well. Salaried positions receive stock options as an added incentive. Many very talented people in the organization. A real opportunity to see the world.

    Cons

    The travel requirements can be intense for many positions as there is not a lot of manufacturing done in the US.
