Approves of CEO

Pros

The people are great. Its a really large company and there are many opportunites to get work in other departments

Cons

Management at least in my case didn't respond to e-mails or even phone calls sometimes. There was little appreciation from management of the work done but if something didn't get done you would herr from them quickly.

Advice to Management

They need to train their managers better. If their managers showed the employees more respect and appreciation it would make it a great place to work.

    Pros

    Number one in semi tool industry. R&D oriented. Cutting-edge technologies. Good pay and OK benifits. Encourage employee grow.

    Cons

    Rich soil for politics. In many cases HR is only working for management to threaten employees, through "written warning" etc., who have different oppions. Some massive lay-offs for no clear reason. Too many directors/Sr directors.

    Advice to Management

    Top management should encourage 1st, 2nd line managers to treat worker more humane.
