I have been working at Brooks Automation full-time (More than a year)
After having worked exclusively for Fortune 100 companies in my career, Brooks' culture is a breath of fresh air. At least on the Semiconductor side--we have clarity of purpose, a GM who is fanatically customer-centric, and relatively few levels for decision-making (travel approvals, hiring, capital expenditures, etc.). The company is very close to its customers which is also forcing us to continually get better on product quality and not accept mediocrity.
Very accommodating on time off and occasional flexible work arrangements, and great PPO health plan.
Still weak on process in a number of areas. Also, employees seldom step up and take the lead without being pushed by a manager. Well-connected to direct customers but less so with end users.
Advice to Management
Upper management is setting a clear direction, but at the next level down, we are still getting bogged down with too many projects which is hurting our ability to execute. The next level down is reluctant to say no and/or focus on the clear areas where Brooks can add value, choosing instead to take on a lot of stuff hoping some of it will strike gold.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brooks Automation in January 2018.
There was a 20 minute phone screen that covered basic technical questions, and in which I was asked to expound on my experience.
The in person interview involved an experience review, overview of the internship, and a short mock programming test.
