    I have been working at IM Flash Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    IM Flash, like many companies I've worked for, has core values: Teamwork, Execution, Commitment, Integrity. Unlike most companies, however, IM Flash does a great job of embodying the values. You really get a sense that management lives and upholds those values in all interactions.

    Cons

    It is a high stress environment. For the most part, the coworkers are great to work with, but even the most pleasant individuals can be hard to work with occasionally in such a high stress, high throughput environment

    Advice to Management

    One of IM Flashes parent companies is Micron where there was historically a time based or milestone based approach to promotions. IM Flash says they don't adhere to those guidelines anymore. Promotions are given based on merit. However, there is still a lingering number of managers that keep grasping to the old ways. In order to become a manager you must work in the fab as a shift employee, work as a process or equipment owner on a M-F day shift, and work as a supervisor on shift. If you skip any of those steps at IM Flash, you will have a very difficult path to management. It doesn't matter if you have leadership positions at other companies and certainly doesn't matter if you have taken any classes or an MBA to improve your leadership skills.

    I have been working at IM Flash Technologies (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    For a semiconductor fab this is a very stable place to work. Plenty of smart people to work with and tons to learn. They have improved at recognizing employees.

    Cons

    Very stressful work environment. This is a highly competitive field and every miss or mistake is highlighted. Can be very difficult to get promoted within. Mistakes are often scrutinized, while going above and beyond is ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Need to improve recognition still as well as promoting within the company.

    I worked at IM Flash Technologies (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working in the Fab you work four days one week and three days the next. This makes it great when you need to get things done in your personal life!

    Cons

    If you do get hired to work in the Fab, more than likely you will be scheduled to work graveyard - this is not fun, because you work 12 hr shifts. Makes it hard to adjust back to normal hours on your days off.

    Advice to Management

    Fab managers need to stop being so mean, people in the FAB are only human and have no control over how the machines run, we can only do what we can do. Previous CEO's loved their employees and treated them with respect! Now, management carry an invisible whip and crack it whenever something isn't going right! They need to lighten up and start treating employees with the same type of respect they want in return!

    I have been working at IM Flash Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company, fast paced, lots of great leaders, awesome coworkers, great facilities (open offices, large cafeteria, gym, medical center, fields, etc)

    Cons

    Can be stressful, in much smaller numbers but still some poor leaders, super bureaucratic - it takes a long time to change anything except on the actual product.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that you're not always communicating everything you think you are to employees. Small groups know and are excited about new technology but the majority are just waiting for something to happen.

    Pros

    Great pay. Great benefits. Excellent team. Love the values. Love the mission of the company. A great history of success.

    Cons

    The dual CEO model of the Joint Venture makes alignment of priorities difficult at times, but something we just need to work extra hard at overcoming.
