    Ultratech: A short-sighed company

    Pros

    Working with some extremely capable and knowledgable people regarding semiconductor litho and laser imaging capital equipment.

    Cons

    Disrepect from upper management, particularly the CEO, whose nick-name among even executive-level employees is "CMO" (Chief Meddling Officer). He tends to keep “Yes-men" around him; conflicting ideas are not recommended here. Also, by his direction, this company rarely hires employees. Rather, as employees leave through attrition (or otherwise), even key positions are filled by contractors and temps to avoid paying benefit, a delusion of saving money. Ultratech tends to keep long-term, lesser-paid employees if their pay level is beneath competitive rates, even if these employees perform below average or are toxic to other workers. As a result, during the three years that I worked there, I began to realize that I was not working with the best and brightest people. And last, Ultratech’s strong directive to hire temps is because they can lay them off with merely an email message sent to the temp agency, which then emails the worker after they have gone home. The laid-off worker is not even permitted to pick up their personal belongings from Ultratech.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect people for their capabilities and not just look at the "bottom line."
