    Pros

    I liked working with the people and the days off. Sabbatical every 5 years and generous PTO.

    Cons

    Training wasn't the best and people weren't moved around to learn new things. They brought on too many new people and they weren't getting trained they way they should be. The benefits were getting expensive. When something needed to be fixed it didn't always get done right away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more awards for job well done. A lot of people did good things but weren't always getting recognized for it.

    Pros

    Growing company in the microelectronics communications field. Love the compressed workweek as an operator, Anything over 8hrs a day is OT.

    Cons

    Witnessed and survived a few layoffs. But they typically don't do layoff. Some of the workers are not team players.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with employees about the performance of others.

    Pros

    good people very bright and those that have worked it appreciate the benefits. Good pay and vacation.

    Cons

    New management is all Intel folks and they don't seem to know the culture. And they don't know the technology at all, the operations director has only a high school diploma what's all that about!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It appears that their is a huge Intel buddy system and some of them are in positions with no formal education or knowledge of equipment or process. They brought in a new operations vice president that barely speaks English and they don't spend their resources on tool upgrades. The tools are outdated and the folks on the floor are getting almost no training. In the long run we need better tools and less scrap that is not being reported accurately to the investors.
