      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Advantest full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      As an applications engineer, one gets exposed to a lot in a very short period of time. Different technologies, countries (due to travel), interesting/intelligent people, cultures in a very positive atmosphere/working environment.

      Cons

      There is no such thing as a perfect job. Individual offices experience gossip, which sometimes get in the way of some groups working together.

      Advice to Management

      Doing a great job. Very intelligent, lots of the old "HP way" has survived. So keep it up!

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Advantest full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      All the advantages of a big company. Good benefits. 7%(!!) 401k match. Stable. Profitable. Great company to retire from. Not many of those left these days.

      Cons

      All the disadvantages of a big company. Silos. Complacency. Overconfidence. I’m not ready for my last job before retirement yet.

      Advice to Management

      Look ahead to the next downturn. Be flexible to take advantage of employee strengths. Don’t waste time on an old school review process straight out of the 1990s.
