    lots of ups and downs, but overall a cool place to work at

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    Prosgetting to know the people and having a feeling of a small team working well together. Benefits and compensations were satisfactory and comparable to other companies in the bay area.

    ConsToo much work pressure at times - lot of travel even for engineers specially during installs of systems at customer fabs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWould help to be a bit more communicative with the various groups both here and in other geographical locations.

    Review from a former employee

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsThe company provides good benefits. The working environment is easy and relaxed.

    ConsAlthough the company has been around for over 20 years, they still operate similar to some startup companies. Their processes are not in place and they don't have guildines and procedures on how things should be accomplished.

    They hire many people to start off as temps so people come and go all the time within the company. The salary here is also not as competive as other companies in the same industry. So, don't expect to be well compensated if you want to join this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide proper feedback and recognition to employees who do a good job.

    Great workers and good products despite the management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood people, willing to work together and exchange ideas. People willing to go extra mile to get things done and take responsibility for their work.

    ConsLack of management planning results in fire-fighting and customer dissatisfaction and last minute travel. Failure by management to manage customers more effectively. Promotions from within are lacking seems to be preference to fill management positions from outside.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlan more and expect issues. New SW & HW should be tested and fixed before shipping to avoid excessive travel to field by engineers to resolve issues. Field issues take 4x the time and effort to resolve, thus much better to resolve at factory.
