if you are mediocre, then you have a job for life

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
Billerica, MA

I worked at Entegris full-time for more than 10 years

Prosopen leave vacation policy;
great co-workers
niche markets are protected, leading to stability of revenue
great work-life balance as there are little consequences for mediocre performance

Consstagnant management - they wouldn't know a new method to approach a problem if it bit them;
too much focus on the bottom line at the expense of training and employee morale;
poor performers are not moved out - they just wait years for the next layoff;
top performers are neither groomed or rewarded - the difference between poor performance and top performance is about 1% at raise time.

Advice to Senior Managementclean house Bertrand - time to start making changes, clean out your middle management ranks and promote some of the younger folks

your protected markets are ripe for disruption. you need to spend more time on innovation and less time on derivatives. time to stop investing R&D in the product lines that are me-too.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Please do not work for this company!!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Entegris full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThere is not one good thing to say about this company.

ConsAll they care about is company bottom line. Employess are numbers to be hacked at as they see fit. Time, experience and ability means less than nothing to this company,

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit trying to protect your own little corner of your world and try to build a real business.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good people, but tough company culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Entegris full-time

ProsEntegris has very interesting technologies and is growing and investing in technology development in the MA area, which is great for career growth and job security. The company is relatively small and has a diverse work force. The employees are friendly, hard working and dedicated.

ConsThe company culture creates a difficult environment to work in. They provide very little training and are very disorganized, which makes it hard to do your job. Half the battle is figuring out how to do a simple task. The culture does not support work-life balance. HR pushes their "honor system" vacation policy as being a great perk for employees, but the culture makes you feel guilty for using it. And since time off isn't tracked (for salaried employees), you don't have the benefit of earning time or being paid out if you don't (or can't) use it. Departments have a CYA mentality, which leads to the blame game and they lack a spirit of collaboration towards a common goal.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe key to retaining good employees is to value them from the top down and provide work-life balance.

Company doesn't care much about employees, minimum or less opportunity for growth- basically stagnant career growth.

Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee)
Billerica, MA

I have been working at Entegris as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsFriendly environment and safety issues above standard industry average

ConsIf hired as a temp the best choice is to find another alternative because this company takes 2+ years before they hire you for permanent position, no matter how best you work and sacrifice yourself for the good of the company

Advice to Senior Managementgive your employees and temporary associates more opportunities, growth starts from within.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
