I have been working at Silfex

Pros

Nice to work mostly unsupervised. Plenty of personal time and vacation time to start. Benefits are pretty good compared to other companies.

Cons

Lam Research took over and now it is very hard to get hired. People don't get equally paid for the same skill sets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to management is to pay people what they are worth. It's not right to have one guy make 13 an hour working next to or training a guy making well over 20. Same job should equal same pay.

    Former Employee - Crystal Growth Technician III in Eaton, OH

    I worked at Silfex full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some outstanding innovations. Small town - no traffic or parking issues. Plenty of social opportunities within the company. Decent schedule with adequate time off (personal and vacation). Pay was better than average.

    Cons

    Communication is severely lacking from management to the floor. Very much a 'good ol' boy' mentality. They do not promote from within - unless you are willing to sacrifice your soul and become a 'yes man'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on communication across the board, technicians need to feel as if they are a part of the solution to become fully invested.

    Doesn't Recommend
