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 Management

Proper balance of investments are necessary to keep competitive edge.

    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.

    Advice to Management
