    I have been working at FormFactor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Independence and flexibility to work, opportunity to be involved in multiple areas, lot on learning in a quick time and more challenges

    Cons

    Good work not always gets credit, politics and finger pointing increased over years, used to have many good people, but mostly have left, talking skills dominate over actual output in career growth. Too many layoffs and company not making profit for last 5 years

    Advice to Management

    Need better focus of goals from management and better channeling of efforts and appreciate good work on merit basis. The bureaucracy needs to be reduced. Business model needs to be reassessed.
