    I have been working at X-FAB Silicon Foundries full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Personable senior management. Outstanding IT support. Excellence in performance from all employees expected and management supplies the tools needed for that level of performance. Non smoking environment and rarely an offensive word is heard. I have received lots of verbal appreciation from my co-workers just for doing my job. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Salaries are typically lower than national averages. Its a long walk from the parking lot to the badge reader.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider all employee social function (not just golf tournament for a select few).

    Like semiconductors, opportunity is directly proportional to one's engineering capabilities and know-how.

    I worked at X-FAB Silicon Foundries

    Pros

    The best part of X-FAB is the freedom. They ask you how to do things rather then tell you how they are done. They give you process requirements and then it's up to you. My project was great. It was deriving physical models of the CMOS and BiCMOS fabriation proceses and attempting to put them into FEA software.

    The project required quantifying microscale behaviors that were so powerful they produced macroscopic effects that interacted with macroscopic fabrication processes. If you're into materials science, MEMS, computer chips, or IC technology you'll enjoy the intellectual challenge.

    Cons

    When you start doing things that are far beyond an engineering curriculum there is little expertese to provide the means to an end. Unfortunately, they don't have experts to prevent you from getting stuck on a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to gain some experience in a chill environment and small city then I highly recommend the job, but if you want a glamorous job in a big city then this may not be for you.
