    I worked at Innovative Micro Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There were a variety of interesting programs to work on, and numerous technical challenges to solve. Able to fully own the technical and business aspects of a program. Learned a lot, good benefits, worked with smart people.

    Cons

    Long, demanding hours. Older equipment. Employees want more formal training. Not enough opportunities for career development outside of the factory, such as being able to attend conferences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Access to current MEMS engineering journals and papers should be made available.

    Pros

    The product line at Micro Technology was excellent. The company had the best add on memory systems for large scale computers.

    Cons

    The management team at Micro Technology was not leadership material. Their mode of operation was negative reinforcement and micro management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real and install an ISO 9001 Quality Management System to improve overal policy, procedures and process work flows.
    This will require a cultural change and improve employee morale

    I worked at Innovative Micro Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best reason to work at IMT is that they're pretty flexible with your schedule. Also as a MEMS engineer starting out you can learn a lot really quickly.

    Cons

    - Doesn't appreciate employees
    - No career growth until your superior leaves
    - Fosters an us vs. them relationship with customers
    - Puts inexperienced people in positions of power
    - Management very reactive, not pro active

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees and customers well, they're the reason you're in existence
