      Great office environment, poor management

      Mar 6, 2020 - Finance in Beaverton, OR

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Good peer-to-peer interaction. - Open to improvement of business processes. - Flexible local management that encourages positive cooperation.

      Cons

      - Very, very poor communication of changes across the company, which stems from upper/executive management. Changes often made without consultation of all affected parties. - Easy to find companies that pay better for similar work. - Poor management decisions have caused increasingly lowered morale, leading to increased employee turnover.

      Pros

      Salary is competitive with the industry. Generous PTO. 10 days company holidays. Great legacy Cascade Microtech people. Flexible hours depending on which department you work in.

      Cons

      FormFactor upper management' poor decision making without the knowledge and experience. It is about 'do it now' rather then 'do it right'. Unfair employee management style.

      Company may not be in business much longer. Just OK.

      Feb 4, 2014 - Anonymous Employee in Livermore, CA

      Pros

      One of the few high tech companies in the East Bay. Decent pay and benefits, however these are slowly being taken away due to the company not being profitable. Still some very good folks working there.

      Cons

      Poor management - they do not value long term employees and the skills they bring. Company has not been profitable for several years and it is an impact on company morale. There have been about 7 or 8 layoff's in the past 5 years. Jobs are not very secure as the company is always restructuring. Overtime is only paid after 10 hours for manufacturing personnel. Very poor engineering support of the manufacturing line.
