I worked at X-FAB Silicon Foundries full-time (More than 10 years)
The people that work there are really great. Pay is fair for location. Learn a lot about how to be better engineer.
Flat organization so not a lot of chances to move up in company. Not a lot options for health insurance. Not many extra incentives.
Advice to Management
It would be nice to have employee appreciation lunches or parties like a Christmas party. Also more options for health insurance would be very nice.
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at X-FAB Silicon Foundries (Lubbock, TX) in May 2008.
Very long and detailed panel interview. Very intense and very thorough questioning from each member of a 5 panel interview.
Very flexible. Never undersell yourself.
