Pros

Novellus offers good pay and an outstanding benefits package. You spend the majority of your time working alone, but when you get stuck, they have a great tech support system in place to help you out. The people there are among some of the best I've ever worked with.

Cons

There is very little room for advancement. You work in close quarters with people from other companies who may not be the easiest to deal with. Also, the politics among the upper management can get pretty hairy.

    Pros

    Overall good company, promoted within, had a solid product base.

    Cons

    CEO's management of the company focused on selling the company in recent years, which held back proper staffing and investments. Good news is it was sold to LAM recently to address this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proper balance of investments are necessary to keep competitive edge.

    Pros

    Good career development and training when one becomes management. Pay well with stocks option bonus, but not everyone gets into the program.

    Cons

    Poor balance between family and work. Long hours at work and work arounf the clock. Business is cyclical, expect lay-off when it is downturn.
