    I worked at Entegris full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Overall - good culture, intelligent co workers, commitment to quality.

    Cons

    lots of sales and product manager lifers that work only to protect their turf and commission/compensation. developing new products for new markets is very difficult and often considered as a threat to existing products. Upper mgmt is too beholden to quarterly earnings - strategy and vision is limited to small moves in semi market and limited to acquisitions - any other type of growth is limited as the company's inertia is heavy to change

    Advice to Management

    create a career development path for employees to work from operations to product mgmt to sales.

    I worked at Entegris full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Global company. Decent size for Global market. Typically #1 or 2 in their markets served.

    Cons

    Customers are typically VERY large and put great pressure on organization. Ties mostly to semiconductor market that can have huge highs and extreme lows.


  3. The definition of micro-management

    I worked at Entegris full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good location. Mostly good, loyal, long-term employees. Decent benefits. Worker-bee culture.

    Cons

    Change and progression will never happen for Entegris because employees refuse it. No recognition for job well done. Managers micro-manage and clock-watch...don't ever think no one is watching your coming and going because they are. Intimidation and public humiliation are used daily thinking that's how results are best gotten. No trust or respect for workers. Open vacation policy is a joke - all that means is HR doesn't track it but managers do and that is worse. My advice...run away....do not work here. It is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs an overhaul. The rules need to be the same for everyone, not only apply to the favorites or the lifers. Engineering is the only department with decent, sensible, realistic people in it. Expectations of employees are unfair and unrealistic.

    I have been working at Entegris full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Entegris has many great employees who work hard and care about their jobs. Key player in semiconductor industry Unique technologies Great people

    Cons

    I was hired to use my skill set to advance the maturity of existing process and protocols. Opportunities to do this were not given and neither I or my supervisor were unable to create them. No common vision Little leadership No consideration to resources or workload No career path of individuals

    Advice to Management

    Start investing in your people

    I worked at Entegris as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good people to work with.

    Cons

    I was an excellent employee but just a "temp". I had little chance of being hired as permanent. They hire(d) many temps to get them through the busy periods.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and hire on the good workers.

    Pros

    Communication with management and an overall great work environment. Low stress.

    Cons

    Mundane projects and a Helpdesk that isn't very helpful. Helpdesk moved overseas and the user experience with IT has suffered. Causing the usual qualms between regular users and IT.

    Advice to Management

    Communication on company growth and the future of the company as a whole. Often it feels like the roller coaster ride of the stock market controls everything at the company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The salary was competitive and there were many challenges to overcome. The health benefits were fair.

    Cons

    The company continues to lose revenue and jobs. People are constantly afraid of the next layoff. They senior managers get big stock blocks of options and the rest of the workforce gets a pink slip.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to step up and guarantee some type of long term employment to your people. Yes, not job is permanent any more but with so many layoffs, the rank n file has lost faith in you.

    Cons

    Management does not listen to employees.

    Attention should be paid to the employee feedback otherwise improvements can not be made.
