I have been working at FormFactor full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Continuous learning from different process is limitless! Challenging! Nice gym!

Cons

Not profitable 3 years in a row, continue to downsize and cost reduction. Uncertain. Support 24/7 and weekends. Stress level is high.Politicking is huge.Good working employees have been laid off or resign. No loyalty and does not protect good employees. If your good in 'talking' and presenting and NOT working it's a good place to be, just need to jump in on every email thread and talk the talk but not walk the walk this is a good place to be...

Advice to Management

A lot of floating Directors, Staff Engineers and Senior Principals that need to streamlines and who really does NOT go in the line or inside Fab. Not deserving of the salaries in regards with their outputs.Need to flash out the employees that every time in the PC and nothing to give to the company...

    I have been working at FormFactor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Independence and flexibility to work, opportunity to be involved in multiple areas, lot on learning in a quick time and more challenges

    Cons

    Good work not always gets credit, politics and finger pointing increased over years, used to have many good people, but mostly have left, talking skills dominate over actual output in career growth. Too many layoffs and company not making profit for last 5 years

    Advice to Management

    Need better focus of goals from management and better channeling of efforts and appreciate good work on merit basis. The bureaucracy needs to be reduced. Business model needs to be reassessed.

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

    Pros

    Great location for those living out in East Bay/Tri-Valley, nice area. Lots of good people but most have already left.

    Cons

    The company is permanently in downsizing mode. Management needs to realize they can't create demand for something that the industry doesn't need. It had a great run but needs to re-size the business, change strategy, go private. The recession really killed this place. Doing more with less. Everyone wears many hats

    Advice to Management

    Take the company private.
