I worked at Hutchinson Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

HTI was a great company -- spent 19 years there. In the later years, it got a little depressing with constant threats of layoffs. But speaking from just a company point of view: competive pay (with the cities), always treated with respect and integrity (as a woman engineer), challenging projects, great benefits. Always opportunities to move around within the company, training was supported and encouraged.

Cons

Not sure the medical division was the right avenue for company growth.

    Pros

    The engineers that you work with are some of the brightest people I know. The engineering challenges are cutting edge.

    Cons

    Company is imploding since many of the disk drive manufacturers have consolidated and taken business elsewhere or in-house. Solid state drives are already competitive on an IO basis and when their prices drop, they will decimate this company.

    Advice to Management

    You can no longer pretend this is an industry that will rebound or that the medical device division will ever materialize as a serious player after going nowhere for over a decade.

    Pros

    Overall this is a fairly decent place to work. The pay is excellent for skilled positions and the benefits are average.

    Cons

    The biggest issue now is the loss of market share and inability to reverse that trend in the near future, if at all.

    Advice to Management

    Step back and compare your company's current status compared to ten to fifteen years ago and take the necessary actions to turn this thing around. Make honest business decisions based on only business, not personal relationships.
