I have been working at MEMC Electronic Materials

Pros

Strong technical foundation and industry leader. Appears to be forward thinking again instead of playing for margins on the quarterly figures as old CEO did. Attempting to reestablish itself as the dominant semiconductor supplier again. Appears to have good strategy but execution is still not proven yet.

Cons

Company is in transition of senior management from two years earlier and is attempting to develop a new company culture but communication is poor in these efforts. Company attempts to infor it's employee's with news letters which is poor medium.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep your professional employee's informed. Little on company strategy and role in execution is revealed beloe the diector level.

No opinion of CEO

    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?
