    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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

    Entegris has many great employees who work hard and care about their jobs.

    Key player in semiconductor industry
    Unique technologies
    Great people

    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

    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 Management

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

    Good people, but tough company culture

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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 Management

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