    I have been working at ANADIGICS full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A few talented managers who know their technical areas well

    Cons

    But these managers are trying to manage areas they don't know, and the BoD won't allow decisions that ultimately would allow the company to survive

    Advice to Management

    Close the doors now.

    I have been working at ANADIGICS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Greatest and most knowledgeable coworkers.

    Cons

    Company will probably close soon. Extremely inflated upper management. After a 30% reduction in force, still have same number of VPs. Totally inverted company structure. Have more VPs than design engineers to develop products. Every day, you fear another layoff.

    Advice to Management

    Show the street you are serious. Eliminate much of your upper management, VPs. Why do have a CTO as a VP with no one reporting to him? End the "buddy" crap.

    Pros

    Good people within the company. Tight groups, willing to train and teach others.

    Cons

    Totally hand cuffed by upper management. Directors think they know everything. They do not trust anyone to work without being micro - managed. Upper management team is only there to get golden parachutes and collect their shares. Took major salary adjustments when company hasn't been profitable in 5+ years. CEO is head of Board-conflict! Last 2 layoffs of over 180 employees...2 director, 1 manager, rest were the worker bees.

    Advice to Management

    MORALS- look it up

    I worked at ANADIGICS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good size - not too big that you are buried among people, not too small that you are overly stressed and overworked.

    Cons

    Frequent management change hasn't done much good to the company and morale.

    Pros

    The compensation is pretty competitive

    Cons

    Management is terrible. There is a lot of favoritism, which is not based on job performance. They are constantly changing CEO's looking for a different result but things stay the same. It is like groundhog day.

    Advice to Management

    If you want things to change you have to be willing to take risks.

    Pros

    good pay compared to other companies, friendly work environment, helpful supervisors, very convenient cafeteria located in the building, interesting work

    Cons

    upper management seemed out of touch

    Advice to Management

    should have more team building activities

    Pros

    Nice location, work is challenging, definite improvement in operations and product quality

    Cons

    Small company with limited resources
    Compensation could be improved

    Advice to Management

    Need to see Mario a little more! More communication would help.

    Pros

    Bonuses and salaries are good when compared to others in the same industry.

    Cons

    - Lack of technical competence and vision from the CTO down to the lowest level of management.
    - Anybody can easily become either a chief scientist or a vice-president if you know the right people.
    - Lots of managers without the proper academic credentials heading very challenging programs.
    - Poor benefits
    - A lot more managers than engineers developing products.

    Advice to Management

    Decrease the level of layers management and increase your product development workforce.
    Hire senior management with respectable and "relevant" academic credentials.

    Pros

    Very nice people. Very knowledgeable employees. Reasonably good pay compared to similar companies.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are one of the worst. Bonus offered in terms of stock.
    The fab is like a lab. There are too many "experts" who do not document anything and work on their own terms. Process Engineers operate like unionized blue collar workers. Too many changes at the top and employees have learnt to ignore management as a result. New Jersey is the wrong place to build a fab. Cost is high. Labor force is one of the worst. Quality consciousness is nil. If Anadigics continues this way, they will not survive against their competitors who have a much more disciplined and higher quality fabs.

    Advice to Management

    There is too much power vested with Human resources dept. Operations gets punished every time. It is time this power base is balanced.

    Should have taken smart decisions when production was going on.
