    Pros

    Lots of pros here, lots of freedom in the technical sense where you can learn and demonstrate your full abilities. There are really no rules in terms of limitations on how far you want to push yourself they will for sure not stop you from over achieving. Some flexibility in schedule but pressure always there is your a tool owner. Its nice to be trusted to for your time worked with out punching a clock. Its also nice... not having a badge number. You do feel human here completely. The people and their resolve is usually top notch, every one really is so good that the competitiveness comes out in meetings and lots to learn from all.

    Cons

    Lots of cons here also..the work flow is so un managed that is basically a nightmare. From hour to hour you will have sometimes no idea where the next number one priority will come from and its already a week behind. There are no LAB guidelines at all to refer to, there are vender manuals but mostly do not apply to the type environment this is so everyone does things a little different. ASM jobs are for sure... venerable. If your not in the right group, the right cliché or in the right direction for profit, you could be jobless soon. ASM does not try to find you work with in the company. Also they do not completely stand behind their words at times. Email only system used for everything, very tough to manage issues with only email. Very very disorganized and no tools for your job. You need to hunt for every single thing you need pretty much every day.

    Advice to Management

    Walk in your employees shoes for at least one day per month or quarter, then you can understand. Start providing employees with what they need to do their job. And listen more.

    Pros

    Excellent health benefit plan, good compensation. Challenging work at leading edge of semiconductor process technology.

    Cons

    Projects can sometimes require long hours, as is the case with most tech companies. Management helps direct employees when priorities change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep data management systems up-to-date.

    Pros

    Company has great technology and the lead in ALD, they're growing , but it's also a company in transition - they are adding capabilities / infrastructure and capacity to meet future needs, and provide for world class capability. It's a place where you can have the environment, and encouragement to do something significant in your career. Lead if you're at that stage in your career, learn, grow and build... something new if you're new to the industry People are generally pretty nice / supportive

    Cons

    It's an international company : so there is some travel or at least world wide communication for many - it's best if you know how to communicate effectively and across cultures The company isn't perfect and there are some important capabilities that are just being built - flip side is you can build those capabilities - and the environment is pretty supportive
