    I worked at MKS Instruments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent working environment. Excellent people. Each employee is able to make a difference.

    Cons

    Coffee is not free. Many contractors come and go.

    Advice to Management

    Full time employees feel pride and belonging. Contractors are just there to do a job and should be spending some of their time looking for the next gig.

    Software Engineer Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MKS Instruments (Rochester, NY).

    Interview

    VERY quick turn around. Phone Interview on a Tuesday, phone call for in-person interview the next day, on-site interview the following Monday and job offer on Tuesday. On site interview was a panel of engineers and was slightly technical, they just asked technical questions as I was explaining my projects. The manager then took me on a tour of the facility and bought me lunch. To finish off my experience I spoke to my contact in HR who is really helpful and nice. Definitely excited to start once I graduate.
