    Pros

    The only reason to work for this company is to meet and work with some cutting edge technology, engineers and technicians.This was once a great company to work for .

    Cons

    Axcelis is mis-managed by a bunch of Butt kissing cronies who spend time covering up thier own inabilities to manage by blaming everybody else. This is a typical blame game company.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and stop blaming your work force for your inability to manage the best work force you will ever have. Stop outsourcing and get back to producing a product which was once the leader of technology. Start working for the customer instead of fighting amoungst individual organizations within the company. Start treating your vendors like partners.

  3. "Disorganized and depressing"

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

    Pros

    A good collection of people in a lovely facility.

    Cons

    The leadership of the company is not respected or considered competent by its employees, by its customers, or by Wall Street. A dramatic change needs to occur if this company is to continue. Unfortunately, its more likely the company will be acquired or simply close up shop. It's downward spiral since it IPO continues.

    Advice to Management

    While well intentioned and hard-working, you have had no success in over a decade. Since you seem unable to change what it is you do, fresh blood is required.
