    2. 1.0
      Current Employee, more than 8 years

      No career growth and clueless upper management

      Aug 20, 2020 - Operator III in Breinigsville, PA

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -No mandatory overtime -Workers set the work speed generally -Long breaks/many breaks

      Cons

      -No advancement (would rather hire from outside the company than promote within) -Direct management are glorified time keepers with no real power but still try to throw their weight around. - Upper management has no clue how the Fab is ran or how to run one and that has become more and more apparent as the years have passed -Upper management spreads rumors, outright lies during meetings and purposely turns shifts on one another creating a very hostile work environment -Absolutely no appreciation for workers other than small bonuses which are dangled in front of us and often forfeited due to, "the economy, the state of the semiconductor market, China tariffs, Covid19." There is always an excuse. -Raises have fallen drastically each year since this location was acquired by Broadcom, until finally no raises were given this year. This is rumored to be the norm with promises of "bigger bonuses."
