    Pros

    LTX-Credence has a dedicated and talented workforce and good technology. The current leadership has a solid financial background and applies it prudently to the business. This financial acumen is the primary reason that the company has remained viable since the tech downturn of 2000.

    Cons

    Over the past decade, semiconductor test has moved from leading edge technology to a commodity market. That, combined with fierce competition and a flat semiconductor market have led to a very challenging business climate for the ATE market affecting both LTX-Credence and other competitors in this market.


  3. Good place, just too cheap

    Pros

    There is something new every day. You don't get stuck doing the exact same task day after day, year after year. Most of the managers are very good about letting you have flexible hours, so long as you get things done.

    Cons

    Upper management is more about the bottom line. They don't put enough investment in tools and people, causing all the task to be more difficult they they would have to me.

    Advice to Management

    Invent in equipment! I grow tired of spending more time looking for working equipment then the time it takes to complete the task.

    Pros

    Very fiscally minded upper management, does an excellent job paying close attention to the bottom line. Makes swift decisive business decisions Deeply entrenched in a niche market and holding ground Company is a survivor.

    Cons

    Does not invest enough in future, especially engineering Little to no overall growth potential, not much hope of expanding out of niche market Behind on the technology curve

    Advice to Management

    If growth is in their plans, somethings have to change, specifically, invest in technology and human resources.
