I have been working at MKS Instruments

Pros

Pay and benefits are nice, people are ok, the managers aren't too demanding, stable job that you can keep forever if you want it.

Cons

No opportunity for personal growth or advancement. People have been in their current jobs for many many years and expressed desire for movement within the company is frowned upon

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company is great. I enjoy the pay and benefits, but I would love more opportunity for growth and advancement within the company.

    I worked at MKS Instruments

    Pros

    Company in general is alright. Group leaders are fairly decent. No time clocks, employees keep
    their own time, then verified by supervisor.

    Cons

    Group leaders that I had ,did not have any knowledge of machinery that I had to operate. Company hires non experience people to do a skilled trade, without any knowledge of math,blueprint reading. Also not understanding the English language or speaking it. finally not having any knowledge of any measuring instruments that is required to perform the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your management needs to look at the people you have that have group leader positions. You will find many of them are not qualified to do what is required. Hire people that are qualified to do skill work.

    I have been working at MKS Instruments full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, good work facilities, nice quiet work environment for software engineers. The benefits are good, including starting with 3 weeks of vacation, in addition to 10 holidays a year. The salaries are good as well.
    I also like that they prefer to hire permanent employees rather than contractors, so there's not much retraining of new people we have to do.

    Cons

    Work facilities could be made a little nicer.
