I have been working at Electro Scientific Industries full-time (More than 5 years)
Lots of smart colleagues and interesting work. Given the freedom to drive projects to resolution. A large variety of customers and applications.
If management is not focused on your project you will get little to no support. If management is focused on your project it will be micro-managed to oblivion.
Lack of resources to cover the projects tackled.
Advice to Management
Cut down on the number of projects so that those that are important are done right. Be more realistic in timelines and goals. Get out of meetings/your office and listen to what your team tells you.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Electro Scientific Industries in April 2015.
1 phone interview with hiring manager
1 onsite half day interview with 5 interviewers.
First interview was with HR. She asked if I know about the company. Next I was interviewed by three different interviewers. They checked my background in C, Analog circuits, Digital circuits/ verilog design. Last round was with manager, he showed me the site.
