Pros

getting to know the people and having a feeling of a small team working well together. Benefits and compensations were satisfactory and comparable to other companies in the bay area.

Cons

Too much work pressure at times - lot of travel even for engineers specially during installs of systems at customer fabs.

Advice to Management

Would help to be a bit more communicative with the various groups both here and in other geographical locations.

    Pros

    The company provides good benefits. The working environment is easy and relaxed.

    Cons

    Although the company has been around for over 20 years, they still operate similar to some startup companies. Their processes are not in place and they don't have guildines and procedures on how things should be accomplished.

    They hire many people to start off as temps so people come and go all the time within the company. The salary here is also not as competive as other companies in the same industry. So, don't expect to be well compensated if you want to join this company.

    Advice to Management

    Provide proper feedback and recognition to employees who do a good job.
