I have been working at Axcelis Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

1)Great Technology
2)Great Co-Workers
3)Lots to learn

Cons

1)Average Base Pay , No Bonus offered , Pay may not meet the industry standards for your work experience
2)Very little to No Annual increment . ( may be about 2 %)
3)LayOffs every year . So high job instability due to the nature of the semiconductor industry.
4)No Recognition offered for work done
5)Very little scope for automation

Advice to Management

Management needs to change. They should not hire people and then lay them off. Futuristic Business planning needs to be done keeping into account the existing headcount. Demand for new tools should be well understood before spending too much money on building them and later running into cash crunch and then laying people off...
