    Pros

    In a high growth segment of the semiconductor equipment industry so the company performance is very good. Collaborative working environment and a culture that lives their values.

    Cons

    Company is not as aggressive as it could be. The company runs very lean so people are stretched, especially now when we are growing so fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you are resourcing the company to take advantage of the opportunities and help employees have more balance.
