    Pros

    Competitive compensation for the area. Good benefits package including medical, dental, vision, various insurance options, 401k, and bonus programs. Plenty of employee extras such as wellness programs, gym, recognition program, company events, etc.

    Cons

    Bonus programs are not a substitute for stock options programs offered by both parent companies. As a JV, promotional opportunities are limited by comparison to parent companies and/or larger competitors in the industry. Cyclical industry with severe economic swings possible.

    Advice to Management

    Recent moves toward something closer to a meritocracy are interesting, but are likely to be underwhelming for employees if advancement opportunities are not sorted out as well. I believe turnover rates are highlighting this issue already.

    Pros

    Friendly people, interesting problems, cool technology. They have a great continuing education program onsite for people to brush up on a variety of topics. They also have a great continuing education program for MBAs.

    Cons

    Very ridged. Pay isn't merit based, but based on fairness. Too much red tape. It takes near executive level to get anything significant accomplished. Culture promotes a B player environment because of the rigidity and compensation inflexibility. The good people leave, no worries, the org is steadily backfilled with young and dumb college grads that are looking for their first job.

    Advice to Management

    Make the right decisions for the sake of the company not your career. I felt like too many decisions were political, based on future promotability. A lack of risk taking. This company is slow to adopt new technologies and doesn't enable it's engineers to succeed to their full potentials. Every manager should run their teams based on what they think is best. If they get burned doing what is right there are plenty of jobs out there willing to throw more money at those types of individuals who are willing to go against the grain for the greater good.

    Pros

    Pay, work life balance,medical benefits

    Cons

    Management is horrific. If you work in facilities beware. Try to stay on the fab side of the operation.

    Advice to Management

    Give credit to employees when credit is due. Stop putting yourself above your direct reports.

    Pros

    compensation, benefits, time off. on site cafeteria and gym.

    Cons

    company very strict to guidelines. technicians are not considered to be excelling or "meeting" expectations unless they spend a good deal of time in for OT. Company does not care about work/home balance. Leadership in Wet process area citigates nearly everything.

    Advice to Management

    care more about taking care of the technicians and MTs than you do about your own advancement.

    Great Benefits and the supervisors are willing to work with you in terms of time off and scheduling.

    Start trusting people a bit more

    Pros

    Excellent people to work with and they really give you an opportunity to apply your education to come up with new ideas.
    A great atmosphere for continued learning.
    Competitive pay/benefits.
    Stable working environment.

    Cons

    Mentorship program for interns lacked direction and focus, which I believe in turn led to management being uninterested in my project.
    Working too hard can be seen negatively.
    Not the best environment if you like to work quietly and individually.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time into your interns' success and learning, don't just leave it to the mentors.

    Mentorship, Leadership, Opportunity for Growth, Benefits, Corporate feel but Start up mentality

    Cons

    Big organization, will take effort to be recognized. This isn't really a con but it will be for you lazy folks. Fabrication area, if you like to see outside, the fabrication area isn't for you.
