    I have been working at INFICON full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very good company to work for with an excellent work life balance. Wages are fair for the Syracuse office. Senior management is excellent and keeps all employees informed in monthly company meetings. Training is very good and most employees are very long term and their experience is valued. Employees are empowered to make changes for the better of the organization, and it's easy, with a very open minded senior management.

    Cons

    Not many, I could say that the health insurance could have a lower monthly contribution as compared to other companies in the area. Paid time off is packed into the Christmas holiday and you generally get a very nice holiday season off, some way better than others, but not much the rest of the year which is a sacrifice, making it appear as a great benefit but comparable to similarly sized companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at INFICON

    Pros

    Healthcare when hired constant hours and overtime is not mandatory and flex hours in the summer.

    Cons

    No room for growth you stay where you are hired. You start out through a temp agency. Pay is low for the kind of work unless you are hired with a PHD. Alot of micro - managing. They do not follow there own policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more especially to the ones that do very important skilled jobs where without those people the company can not function or make money.

  3.  

    Excellent for its autonomy, but employees are undervalued.

    I have been working at INFICON as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The atmosphere is very laid-back and welcoming, and the people are genuinely warm.
    Autonomous work environment, which shows that the employees are trusted to get the work done, without someone looking over their shoulder.

    Cons

    Hiring has not kept up with growth or the ever-expanding workload, but this seems to fall on deaf ears.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay. Hire more help.

    Pros

    Very easy place to work where the company cares about emploies

    Cons

    The "very easy" comment above alows some people to take advantage of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its time to understand the competence and lack ther of of your direct reports.
    Some need badly to go away
