    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Outstanding Executive Management Team in place. -Comprehensive Benefits Packages. -Generous PTO policy in high tech manufacturing allows for a great work/life balance. -Veteran friendly corporation! -Tuition Reimbursement Program (up to Masters level) -Some of the most passionate, dedicated, and professional employees that I have had the pleasure of leading. -Engineering-Driven Niche Product of Advanced Test ProbeCards and cutting edge Packaging Systems has allowed the company to scale significantly in recent years while adding diversity in systems capabilities, DRAM, SOC, Silicon Photonics to propel the company to new levels during an explosive period in the Semiconductor/IC industry. -Average tenure of manufacturing fabrication employees is hovering at over a decade and many have been able to provide for their families, put their children through college and live an extremely healthy life style in beautiful Northern California .

    Cons

    -Extremely Lean Manufacturing Environment with tight lead times offers significant challenges. While this is more of an opportunity to grow, develop, and break down barriers, than a negative, it is not for the faint of heart(especially those who occupy a leadership role).

    a very good work-life balance, however, when the perks comes, I worked till 11pm in order to catch the deadline. Overall good working environment. Good leadership from the above.

    Cons

    benefits are kinda average. office culture is ok, from my experience, no much office politics, and everyone just trying to make the project work and make profit.

    Great potential, horrible execution and standards.

    May 24, 2022 - A & T Technician in Livermore, CA

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I’m a position for explosive growth if they can get their manufacturing plant in order.

    Cons

    Outdated, inaccurate and incorrect work instructions (how to build the product). Knowledge is extremely tribal and not shared willingly because of competition and jealousy. Poor leadership from the manufacturing floor supervisor. No training program for new hires. Techs are brought in as temps and aren’t made permanent employees for 2+ years in some instances.
