I have been working at MEMC Electronic Materials

Pros

Overall the pay is pretty high, For salary people the overall work experience is satisfactory. It's pretty hard to get fired.

Cons

I would not work here as an hourly person. Sick days the first 2 are at no pay. The Pasadena site has a scary process.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management knows they have a moral problem the turnover is pretty high especially for skilled craft. I really think management is trying to make MEMC a better place to work.

    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.
