    I worked at LTX-Credence full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    I have been working at LTX-Credence full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at LTX-Credence full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at LTX-Credence full-time

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. If you can find a work you like in an area that fits with the company's strategy, you will be OK.

    Cons

    They are focused on the low end of a very cost competitive industry, so innovation is targeted at reducing cost rather than technical leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Management knows what it is doing, is executing on its strategy, and it is working for them.
