I have been working at Orbotech

Pros

- A true industry leader
- Most of the managers and employee are very nice and supportive
- Lots of opportunities for R&D people
- Can truly learn about doing business in APAC

Cons

- Most of the business trips are to APAC only and minimum 2 weeks - a real burden on the family
- Operates in technological niches and therefore the industry knowledge is mostly irrelevant in Israel
- The company is not growing. Constant pressure on profits
- When there are profits, they don't trickle down to employees
- Low compensation relative to high-tech industry
- Increasing office politics

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Review compensation policy
- Review 2 week trip policy - cause of a lot of distress
- Kill unsuccessful projects

    Pros

    You can work at the headquarters and see and influence critical decisions.
    Some bright people work there, but their numbers are getting smaller everyday because they leave.

    Cons

    Low compensation, non competitive salaries.
    Good people are leaving the company.
    Most development is moving to APAC region.
    No real innovation in the past 10 years - usually reuse existing concepts, and don't understand why competitors pass them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more chances. Otherwise, competitors will take over the market.
    Rethink who your manafement team is. Some of them should not be there. Spending many years in a company is not a reason to keep someone as a manager.
    You are loosing good people. Think why this happens and fix it.

    Pros

    Humane environment. Supportive of part-time

    Not a good place to `grow' career wise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is better, though harder, to put the talented people as management than to look after those that have been there forever
