    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    All 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Good people, but tough company culture

    I have been working at Entegris full-time

    Pros

    Entegris 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Friendly environment and safety issues above standard industry average

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

    give your employees and temporary associates more opportunities, growth starts from within.

    Pros

    Strong marketshare position in the market

    Cons

    Similar to the industry, people are not even a partial focus of this company . Entegris is driven by a conservative financial model, which is the basis and justification of all decisions. Organization is very flat, resulting in very limited opportunities for career growth .

    I worked at Entegris as a contractor (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    Respect and hire on the good workers.
