      Pros

      I have seen a tremendous amount of attention and support from the executive leadership on developing and advancing women in leadership. The tone is being set from the top...in order to attract and retain the best talent, we have to optimize our Brooks Core Values to be an even more inclusive and supportive environment for women to thrive. We have may talented women at Brooks and it's great to see the recognition of that, and a need to increase the number of women.

      Cons

      The semiconductor industry has typically had less females, but Brooks is pushing through to make that change.

      Too many legacy products are in the mix which are still orders by our customers and manufactured. This stretches thin our engineering resources and time allocation to our future products and improvements

      Decent enough

      Pros

      Decent pay, alright benefits. Depending on your job type you will get to travel globally. The C-suite executives seem to genuinely care about the company.

      Cons

      Work life balance is poor at best. Management is inconsistent in their leadership abilities. At least within my department they will want you to take initiative, but then disregard any suggestions until enough time had passed to claim ideas as their own.

      Pros

      The work culture at Brooks is a major plus. I have made lasting professional relationships at the company. Unlimited time off and great benefits as well.

      Cons

      At times, the collaboration between departments has been a bit lacking, but I know the upper management and HR teams are working to remedy this.

      Only 15 days of PTO to start. It goes up to 17 after your first year. Then doesn't change until you have been there for 5.
