    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Global reach
    Visionary management
    Small company environment
    Technology leaders. Carved a very clear niche in yield management
    Established Service business which acts as an excellent hedge during downturns

    Cons

    Bottom of the food chain in semiconductors
    When a downturn hits, the company suffers the longest

    Advice to Management

    You need to understand what brought K-T where it is today, and not just follow the good to great example.

    Couple this with your the history of expansion through M&A and that can bring you back on the path where you are eating into the bigger pie of semiconductor equipment. By concentrating on your "core business" you seem to be contracting your share of business, as opposed to growing it.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Many good talented people, better than average compensation, learning opportunities

    Very political, people have their own agendas and ruin careers of others, very bureacratic and slow to respond, arrogance towards customers

    Advice to Management

    Quit outsourcing and try to grow internally, reward employees as in the past and you will get better results, question the wisdom of Rick Wallace and how well he has done.
