Pros

Friendly co-workers. If you worked more than 5 years you will have 4 weeks off (PTO) plus 5 weeks sabbatical time and 2 week's extra pay for every 5 years. Good travel compensation (e.g., $59 per-diem for Japan and Korea in 2011). Communication between top and bottom is OK.

Cons

Due to its small size lately Mattson had hard time to keep dry strip market share and even harder to penetrate its new segment to etch market. No extra money to put into R&D to keep competitive. Can not attract and keep top talents.

Advice to Management

Top management should spend less time on traveling to the customer sites but focus on how to develop competitive products. For good quarters bonus should be given back to hard-working employees.

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable/capable engineering teams

    Generous vacation plan for long term employees. 5 weeks paid sabbatical every 5 years, and additional 2 weeks pay to use on your sabbatical.

    Excellent safety/health systems

    Cons

    No development for employees. You could work here a long time while your skills become stagnant. Management sees know return on investment for training except for management team.

    Decisions (particularly budget) held at high level. Management constantly traveling to customers and not in touch with what is happening in company.

    Management not interested in "business process". Continuous logistics problems, project/program management weak, product development plan exists on paper only.

    More time and energy spent in communicating with securities analysts then with employees.
