    Pros

    Great benefits - 5 weeks annually for combined vacation / sick time and an environment where accountability is based on how you get things done.

    Cons

    Career growth is linked to time in position or with the company, some business areas do better than others but overall there is little downside if you are looking for a steady job.

    Advice to Management

    Shareholders would benefit from a increased rate of innovation.

    Pros

    Benefits were great and most co-workers were friendly

    Cons

    Zero work life balance, open PTO policy is deceiving since you are made to feel guilty for using any time off.

    Advice to Management

    Come out of your office and walk around

    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.

    Pros

    Strong core technology and excellent selection of products Very strong international presence Many strong individuals with good technical know how.

    Cons

    Departments are very isolated, lots of silo building Teamwork is practically non-existent. Too much concern over the "next quarter's numbers", no long term plan Rewards are not spread to all levels, the workers on the floor are considered interchangeable despite the extensive training needed for them to perform their jobs

    Advice to Management

    Generate a vision for the company beyond the generic standard buzz words, and live the vision. There needs to be more connection between the upper management and the guys doing the work.

    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.


  11. Niche market, billion dollar company with a start-up mentality.....

    Pros

    Decent compensations and benefits.

    Cons

    Poor working environment. Company wants superstars, but embraces mediocrity. No professional development offered, no tuition reimbursement.
