    I have been working at Entegris full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Entegris is a really strong company that is regarded the best in the business. Had a fantastic 2016 represented by the soaring stock price. More than 50% of people working in my plant have been here all their life. A majority of employees work here till they retire, showing excellent growth, benefits and job security. All major semiconductor giants are customers of Entegris. Teams work very closely and there's a general atmosphere of positivity when working for Entegris.

    Cons

    People are occasionally resistant to change because they have been used to following a certain procedure for so long. There is surely a gap of communication between upper management and the rest of the employees. Departments tend to do what's best for them instead of what's best for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent to your workforce since they are the reason the company is where it is today. Work towards overall company goals instead of your personal department goals that would make only you look good

    Pros

    Good money and also benefits.

    Cons

    Uncertain future. Priorities change by the hour because of poor decision making. People cannot be successful. Employees are held to standards their leadership doesn't meet. PACE values exist on the posters only.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace and follow PACE values.

    I have been working at Entegris full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were great, now they are just good/ok; still better than a lot of companies. Dress code is business casual and jeans can be worn on Fridays. Many employees are long-term, friendly and helpful. Upgraded systems: SAP, Business Objects, Microsoft Office 365, etc. Location is nice, easy commute in SW suburbs, close to bike paths or bus line if you don't drive or like to walk at noon.

    Cons

    Constant acquisitions, mergers and restructures. Sr. Mgmt has been so focused on becoming a "global leader" and on margins that they've forgotten about what once made this company great; the people and the products. Every time we restructure, whether it be in Corporate, Sales, Engineering or the Plant, it's usually the 20 - 30 year people that are eliminated, along with all their product & systems knowledge, expertise, and loyalty. Morale declines company-wide, and those that remain have to pick up the slack making their work/home life balance suffers even more.

    Sr. Mgmt preach Corporate Values, business partnering, collaboration, coaching, etc. but then company-wide they pass over the talented and respected Mgr's, and promote (or hire from the outside) Mgr's who are arrogant, unfeeling and sarcastic, because "they'll be able to make the tough decisions". They also make your dedicated employees want to leave and go somewhere where they will be appreciated and respected.

    Minimal opportunities for career growth in Entegris Finance/Accounting. Sr. Mgmt, Directors and several Mgr's have been here for many years and are not leaving anytime soon.

    Most employees live outside of the metro area where it's cheaper to live so they will accept lower wages, therefore Entegris' salaries are slightly lower than the average Twin Cities Mfg company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back system training in a classroom setting for everyone, not just Super Users. Tuition reimbursement needs to be increased. Invest in your people; train them, promote from within & retain your talent. Why is M.L still here, and a Dir no less, she is clueless. The only thing she seems capable of doing is traveling & partying on your dime and posting pics on FB... Add more Mgmt training to LMS for Mgr's & Dirs and/or bring in trainers at least once a year. Some people could use it more often due to their poor people & communication skills (JB).
