    I worked at FormFactor as an intern

    Pros

    Very nice people. 1-1 with supervisors every week. It was very busy most of the time but I loved it!! Engineers I worked with are very approachable and nice. Tried to bring the most out of my internship. Add on the Lunch and learn sessions every week with free lunch while listening to amazing people/mentors. Showed me the real life/work of an engineer!

    Cons

    It was too far away from where I lived and add up the traffic on 805. I wish there was relocation assistance.

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

    Pros

    My work schedule is very flexible with the ability to work from home. Of course, not everyone is able to do that, but my job as a CAD designer is great...I don't have to drive 40 miles every day into the office.

    Cons

    I really cannot think of any downsides.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any. I am very pleased with my immediate and upper management.
