    I worked at Verigy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Though the company no longer exists, they did treat their employees well and it was a very nice place to work.

    Cons

    Though the pressure was actually pretty low at this company I still found myself working long hours. That may have been more a personal choice, but it did feel necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Interact with the engineers more often.


  2. OK but not stellar

    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    Challenging work, especially as the company spun off from Agilent Very congenial coworkers with intelligent ideas

    Cons

    Company systems and processes are not robust Internal politics sometimes result in decisions not in the company's best interest Old Agilent culture is sometimes resistant to change

    Advice to Management

    Let new managers become part of the old boys club - the company needs new ideas


  3. Struggling organization with limited direction

    I have been working at Verigy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people who want to see a successful company. Excellent test platform for SOC Focused on improving the customer experience When economy is doing well this business is making good money

    Cons

    Executive management that cares primarily about themselves Need to find success in some other product than SOC. Several big silos of effort which could work better together

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to you employees in a meaningful manner.

    I worked at Verigy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People I worked with are high integrity, intelligent and driven

    Cons

    E-level management does not want to grow people or the business, they want to make millions of dollars the easiest way possible.

    Advice to Management

    None, as they are too self absorbed

    Pros

    Always on the cutting edge of test technology. The company is run by people who know the industry and are genuienly interested in providing inovative solutions to the test industry.

    Cons

    Working with Germany is difficult. Sometimes these are cultural (We germans are always right!). Sometimes it is because they are so busy with so many products that they do not have time to devote to remote feild requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Germany is not the center of the Universe. There are other places in the world besides Germany. Germans can act too provicially.

  9. Verigy is in a death spiral placing little to no emphasis on their customer base, employees, or investment in R&D.

    Pros

    I joined Agilent in 2000 just after the HP spun off the test business to Agilent. Agilent was a Great company to work for with opportunities for advancement and recognition for once hard work. However in 2006 when Agilent spun off the Semiconductor Test business to Verigy the company’s business dynamics changed dramatically. Customer and employee focus was gone as well as investing in tomorrow.

    Cons

    Verigy is a small company with no real focus on investing in its future or employees. They have a very limited focus on their major customers with little to no focus on satisfying smaller customer base.

    Advice to Management

    Too much focus on the short term results with no focus on long term growth objectives.


  10. They tried to be a HP spin out, gave it a good shot and will merger

    Pros

    The company was a great concept in the beginning, they did a valiant job to stand alone, increase their portfolio, and markets. They are only a one trick pony and will merger with another company.

    Cons

    Financial performance is poor, bad product choices, politics and poor communication from senior managers. The morale is very low and folks are leaving in droves.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the poor performing senior managers that got the company in the bad shape it is in. Keep the innovative core and merge to become healthy again.


  11. Great people, but a completely externally focused management

    Pros

    Leading edge technology Very smart, very senior people Reasonable, though not great, compensation package Support for creative ideas Great customers

    Cons

    Upper management is completely focused on the investment community. (This may be changing as Jorge takes charge) Lack of communication from the executive team, even more, a lack of understanding of the employee situation The above two result in a lack of trust between the employees and the management
