    Former Employee - General Manager in Chaska, MN

    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.

    Former Employee - Buyer in Chaska, MN

    I worked at Entegris full-time (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Decent compensations and benefits.

    I worked at Entegris full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some excellent, hard working co-workers who are trying do their best despite the poor management team.

    Cons

    The management team is one of the worst I have experienced during my career.
    Management has very little understanding of their customer base (what they do, wants and needs).
    Multiple product lines, each with different management teams and goals which may conflict with each other.
    Inappropriate behavior during business meetings and via email is tolerated by management.
    Quality systems are lacking.
    Employee training is lacking.
    Taking more than a few days of PTO is frowned upon. You are expected to be available by phone or email while on PTO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The board of directors needs to clean house and put a new management team in place.

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

    Pros

    There are fantastic, dedicated people who have worked for this company for many years that genuinely care about the quality of the products they manufacture and customers they service.

    Cons

    There was at least two tenured managers that inhibited creativity and believed in an autocratic style with little regard for their direct reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Believe in the individual and in the power of small teams and you will not be disappointed.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Billerica, MA

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

    Pros

    open 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

    Cons

    stagnant 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 ManagementAdvice

    clean 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.
