I have been working at FSI International full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Majority of production staff are easy to get along with and will help out as needed. Decent schedule. Great 2nd shift production manager

Cons

The most important thing for this company is the almighty dollar. Upper management is more interested in profits than of spending the appropriate amount of money to develop excellent tools. They want you to volunteer to help with field work, but you have to pay for all travel expenses and then submit a bill for reimbursement. Who's got that kind of credit line sitting around when you are working and having to pay bills for a family. No thanks!

Advice to Management

If you continue to build upon a constantly shifting base, your business will not survive. Pay the money to develop the tools, so they will work the first time when they hit the field.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance
    Relatively low stress
    Interesting technology
    Good technical talent pool

    Cons

    Concerns about long term viability in such a competitive industry. Many of their competitors use cheap labor (India, Vietnam, China, H1 visas) and are willing to push employees to the breaking point.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show your appreciation for your (good) employees and respect for their for personal lives. Don't be afraid to push them a little when the business needs it.
