    I have been working at Brooks Automation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    people, people, people...did I mention the people? not calling the time spent there war but the relationships built when people are fighting together on a consistent basis are tight.

    Cons

    I would not include senior management in the people people people comment. they could not care less about their people. No career planning at all...heck no planning at all...there is no time to plan but plenty of time to fix after the customer screams! Would I work there? I do but the first chance I get, I am gone! No, I do not recommend this company.

    Advice to Management

    Start planning...past the next quarter. Go back to MBA school and forget about the finance classes...try taking some leadership classes

    The company has great products to work on and as an engineer you can learn a lot and take that knowledge to a smaller company.

    Cons

    The semi business is up and down so you need to make sure you are on the correct product line
