    Process Engineer II (Current Employee) Manassas, VA

    ProsChallenging work that invites contributions from all members. Senior management very good at recognizing talent. Excellent HR development staff at the company.

    One of a Kind Opportunity in VA

    Technical Writer (Former Employee) Manassas, VA

    ProsIn a state saturated with acronym soup (government contracting and software development), this manufacturing facility is a rare find. Technicians walk around in hard hats and clean room gowns; machine components sit half-constructed on desks; people actually build real technology - not all that bland, virtual crap that passes these days for engineering.

    People there are enthusiastic about what they build, and it was a pleasure being a tech writer at such a company.

    ConsMaybe this is part of working in manufacturing, but there's a definite resistance to doing anything differently. Tribal knowledge makes change frustrating. Also, the cyclical nature of the industry means occasional forced vacations or layoffs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhite collar workers don't and shouldn't subscribe to the same shift mindset as the clean room. Our work is qualitative and our productivity is rarely flat enough to measure in cycle time.

    Limited growth opportunity

    Buyer (Former Employee) Manassas, VA

    ProsStable work environment, benefits acceptable,, good training environment for engineers and support groups.

    ConsIf you would like to advance be prepared to move to Boise or Singapore. There is little growth opportunity in Virginia.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReduce Amount of managers/supervisors -very top heavy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overworked, underpaid, poorly managed, lacking in opportunities

    Engineer (Current Employee) Manassas, VA

    ProsLocation - close to Washington DC

    ConsWorkload - a typical team is understaffed and overloaded with work. Typical complain is being unable to be on top of things. Shift personnel are untrained or lacking in ownership so they always seek first shift support or 'nod'.
    Management - or lack of it. Top-heavy, mostly white male. Some got their degrees from Phoenix, de Vry or some online 'school'. Management and leadership skills are acquired thru trial and error at the expense of employees.
    Promotion - very minimal. Needs attrition or know someone in upper management a 'la ole boys network
    Salary - not enough considering the cost of living here in Northern VA. Some companies in AZ offer the same salary despite lower cost of living.
    Business prospect - looks good ... for now. Samsung seems to be winning the business long term.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour workers are your lifeblood. Treat them well and learn to keep them.

    Poor Pay for the job and area

    Senior Technician (Former Employee) Manassas, VA

    ProsAt the time there was plenty of over-time due to a running lean philosphy

    ConsAfter 15 months I hadn't received a raise, evaluation or any other type of incentives.

    Process Engineer

    Process Engineer (Current Employee) Manassas, VA

    Pros3-4 days/ week of 12 hour shift, giving a lot time off

    ConsShift engineers can get "free ride" because performance is based on the team, not individual performance

    Advice to Senior ManagementAssess individual performance more seriously

    Great place to build experience

    Shift Engineer (Former Employee) Manassas, VA

    Pros-Friendly people
    -Lots of opportunities for promotion
    -People motivated huge HR department

    Cons-12 hour shifts plus working overnight
    -very simple tedious work
    -working in a cleanroom even if unnecessary for engineering

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvance to modern day techniques and bring engineering off of shift and the floor to utilize employees talents most effectively

    Girls need not apply

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Manassas, VA

    ProsI enjoy working with the customers and it is close to home. I also enjoy the 12.5 hours of vacation time I get a month

    ConsThis position is really difficult having a work-life balance. The culture tends to be a 'good ole boy's club'. It seems the only way to get promoted is to find a friend who is in upper management. No matter how hard you work, it's not good enough and it's the only place I know that uses a personality contest to get you promoted. Not a very professional atmosphere and a manager who has admitted he knows nothing about what we do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome advice I have is to take a good hard look at your managers and decide if some of them need to be demoted from their positions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
