I worked at Cascade Microtech full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Worker bees are friendly and strive to do the right thing. Being in Beaverton means not having to drive in downtown Portland traffic.

Cons

Management is clueless. The preverbal left and right hands don't know what the other is doing. Decisions are made without all the right information. Management doesn't listen to their employees. No raises in over nine years. Not everyone is treated the same. You see serious favoritism.

Advice to Management

Start listening to your employees. They are the ones that are doing the work.

    I worked at Cascade Microtech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging - if you like it. I did to some extend. I held as long as I though it was worth it, learned a lot.

    Cons

    Very challenging due to old accounting system and old philosophy. Improvements were literally not possible due to a single employee bully. A lot of re-work, no SWIs, no support/communication from other departments. I hear that employee is still there so more of the same?

    Advice to Management

    think kaizen, people. it's time.

    Pros

    This is a little company on the way up. There is so much to do to help it grow that it is easy to have a big impact. I am also learning new things every day. The people are wonderful. There are no politics and there is a high level of trust.

    Cons

    If you want a company with really well defined processes and a lot of structure, this isn't the place for you.
