I have been working at MKS Instruments

Pros

Flexible work hours, numerous products which cover a wide range of technologies and engineering disciplines. So there are always things to learn if you want to.

Cons

Some managers and supervisors can be rude, arrogant and nasty, but somehow they manage to stay in their positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you take care of your employees, they will take care of you. Happy employees are more productive and motivated. If you find your group has a low moral, check your management style.

    I worked at MKS Instruments

    Pros

    One of the better "high tech" companies in the area.

    Cons

    There seemed to be a "need to know" attitude about other product's design or manufacturing features. As an employee this seemed a bit strange, particularly when designing in a similar area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees that have significant industry experience and act on it. The continued success of your business depends upon it. Although now gone, I'm still a stock holder.

    Pros

    Ok to balance between work and life. Easy to get in touch with senior engineers for technical discussion.

    Cons

    The decision making from management level is slow. Marketing and engineering are hard to get aligned for the target. Advanced development for new product and technology is not efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the decision-making process. Reduce the layers of management.
