Pros

Plenty of work to catch up on.

Cons

Procedures and policies were very poorly written and were not followed. Supervisor very wishy-washy on any decisions that needed to be made, many short cuts and work arounds were done on a daily basis. I was told on my 2nd day of work that everyone at that facility was looking for a new company to work for because they have been overworked for 3 years with deap layoffs with absolutely no pay raises in over 3 years.

Advice to Management

When hiring someone for their knowledge and expertize listen to their suggestions instead of trying to shut them up, they might just be able to get the control in your configuration management group because there is none now.

    Pros

    The Semiconductor industry is a fast paced environment. Rudolph Technologies has adapted well to the environment by being a nimble company. Rudolph has made some good acquisitions in this time - this has allowed for some good growth opportunities.

    Cons

    There is a little too much of a small company feel here - by this, I mean favoritism, promotions based on individual preferences, not always based on merit. The upper management is a little too absorbed in padding their own wallets rather than looking out for the interests of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    More focus on pure product management, focused product development. Hire and keep employees and managers who have delivered results vs. managers and employees who spend time sucking up to higher management.

    Pros

    Known as one of the great companies to work for . Great and friendly HR, its policies and benefits. Really compassionate about employees and very few cuts even during the severest downturns. Lot of talented and friendly people to work with, over all great environment

    Cons

    Getting too ambitious in pursuit of beating KLA, too many acquisitions and mergers , unable to concentrate on core technologies, very few growth opportunities and prospects because the company is shrinking.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be concentrate on core products and what the customer needs. Needs more control over customer support and provide more opportunities to talented individuals
