    I have been working at MKS Instruments full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for the job performed. Benefits are comparable to most companies in the area/field. Work versus life schedule is good.

    Cons

    Does - DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THE EMPLOYEE - cant emphasis this enough. Cheap, inablility to create and maintain the simpleest of processes, year after year. MKS idea of a "Bonus" is a ice cream cup. ( actual a true statement ) Employee moral is VERY VERY low and most are dissatisfied by the top reaping gains year after year and not recognizing the individuals. Everyday is a complaint fest. Consistant shut downs (no pay), example last shut down company gave a bonus of three vacation days and in the same email gave a shut down of 5 bussiness days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management - Overall they just don't understand the employee. All for profit, all corporate. do not expect to be rewarded for consistant excellence.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Ok to balance between work and life. Easy to get in touch with senior engineers for technical discussion.

    Cons

    The decision making from management level is slow. Marketing and engineering are hard to get aligned for the target. Advanced development for new product and technology is not efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the decision-making process. Reduce the layers of management.

    Doesn't Recommend
