    I have been working at E Ink full-time (Less than a year)

    Great people, great company to work for. I have been treated very well, with plenty opportunity to grow in areas that I find interesting, and I never feel that my work is unappreciated in the slightest.

    I absolutely do not regret anything.

    Keep on keeping on.

    There is not a lot of room for personal growth. There is a problem with keeping young professionals.

    Management in Taiwan has a high-touch impact on what happens day-to-day with an increasing amount of focus on the short term over long term.

    I have been working at E Ink full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have a lot of nice people working there. It would be a great technology.

    Cons

    Still running like a start up. Managers micro manage. Make small minor mistake and the world comes to an end.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people. You have good people working there let them do their jobs.

    I have been working at E Ink full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My immediate supervisors and co-workers are fantastic. Always new and interesting things to work on, while 50% of the job is the same year-to-year, the other half is like getting a new job every year.

    Cons

    On the low side of pay, is loosing the nice close-knit community feel of a startup for a more formal corporate one. Plus side are nicer standard benefits like 401(k), but downside is loosing company culture benefits like free lunch and social activity.

    Advice to Management

    At least in the R&D operation, they need to build lateral idea sharing and informal creative opportunities - operational silos increase efficiency but reduce chances of major breakthroughs. They also need better scientific data management.


  9. "Great Place to Work at the Time"

    I worked at E Ink full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, good people, interesting work. At the time E Ink was adjusting to a period of lower growth after the explosive growth of the Kindle. These sorts of adjustments can be tough. Management committed to making things work.

    Cons

    Low personal growth potential, limited opportunity to take initiative. Great for someone who just wants a 9-5er but not for someone who wants to make a splash

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks on new ideas.

    I worked at E Ink full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    it was a learning experience to inspect the imaging sheets for quality control learn how to set up imaging film in oven in different temperature work with a talented group of people

    Cons

    when production was slow it was difficult staying busy but i always stayed busy cleaning the ovens wash down the floors help where they needed me in any station i was flexible in doing any job i learn fast and i get along with my co workers

    Advice to Management

    my advice to management is to keep up with the competition we had black and white film instead of color film at that time don't know if things change since then but it was a learning experience

    Pros

    Great work environment and culture. Fast paced and simply awesome people to be around with.

    Cons

    Long hours and terrible management team. I feel strongly that some of the engineers does a better job than the project managers.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn to trust your employees and let people be creative and enjoy the excitement of producing a new product or design.
