I worked at Intevac full-time (More than 3 years)
Standard Benefits. Very common to what you see in most companies. 401K match started again. Friendly team members. Accommodating.
It is a survivor. I don't see great growth in future years. I can see it doing about the same, plus or minus 15 percent over the next set of years.
I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intevac (Santa Clara, CA) in August 2012.
I had a face to face interview with the hiring manager and a would-be co-worker who was laid off my first week. I then Interviewed face to face in California for about 90 minutes. I no sooner got off the plane and they offered me the job. They sent a car to pick me up at the airport and bring me to my hotel. There was a rental car for me to use at the hotel during my stay. Very nice accommodations.
The salary was very generous although the commission wasn't nearly as plentiful as presented by the hiring manager. It was promised it would be double our base salary. It wasn't even close.
