    I have been working at IM Flash Technologies full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, Dental, Health, Vision. Regular bonus period, and a good claim for the foundation of an honest culture. Vision of Execution, Integrity, Teamwork, and Commitment. Promotional system has good basis, with items to help prevent a "hateful manager" or "yes-man" from failing or receiving promotion unfairly.

    Cons

    Completely unreasonable expectations from management. Good ol boy culture is prevalent over their claimed vision. Wearing out kneepads under desks is rewarded more than doing your job and increasing fab throughput. Engineers have a completely different accountability level than Technicians; Engineers can do no wrong and have excuse for ignoring a few of the "values" while Technicians are blasted for not completely agreeing...

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting for what people seem, learn WHO the people are that you want to promote, not by what they say, but by what they do and how the people they work with every day think about them. If peers won't work for them, they have stepped on toes, hands, and heads to look better in managements eyes. Actually follow the PRA system instead of making workers go through it, then claiming they can't be promoted for other...

    I worked at IM Flash Technologies full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    IMFT persists at the cutting edge of semiconductor manufacturing technology and this provides ample excitement knowing that you are participating in the future of computing.

    Cons

    IMFT has consistently deployment multiple corporate culture programs such as TPM, 6S, Crucial Accountability, Speed of Trust, and IDEAS but it has failed to adhere on stated goals or principles outlined in these programs at multiple levels. This has lead confusion, frustration, and a general lack of direction in the fab. Protocols set forth by these programs are frequently re-interpreted or outright violated for the...

    Advice to Management

    Perform higher-level, thorough audits. Ensure that any deployed program is being properly implemented and adhered to so that those people doing the work can execute consistently to the deliverables. Do not "spin" shift readiness for the sake of falsely "achieving" a goal. Readiness cannot, in isolation, be captured solely on the basis of being certified on documents that 1) do not and cannot realistically cover...

    Current Employee - Equipment Technician 

    I have been working at IM Flash Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been working at IMFT for a little over 7 months and I love the company. I have a great schedule (working either 3 or 4 12 hour shifts per week) I get along well with my co-workers, and I get paid well above the industry standard for someone at my skill level.

    Cons

    the only downside is the lack of application of TPM, which is a manufacturing philosophy which they teach, but do not apply as fully as I believe they should. However, they are working to make this better.

    Thanks for your feedback on TPM, and we are working to enhance this at the site. We're glad you're liking it here!

    I have been working at IM Flash Technologies full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, PTO Program, school compensation, promoting healthy lifestyle through onsite gym and activities, solid insurance plan

    Cons

    Chaotic with new technologies rolling through, employees need to slow down and make better choices, management stress causing unhealthy work environment, rotating shift schedule from nights to days, promotions are acquired by writing a book about how of a hotshot you are (should be reviewed and decided based on merit, not how well you can boast about how you are the greatest).

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your employees are doing the best they can with what they have available. Encourage better decision making because bad decisions are the cause of how hard you push for results. Culture and values are diminishing due to how much pressure you put on your team members.

    Pros

    The benifits are ok the pay is ok for Utah county

    Cons

    They laid off good people and they can claim all they want that the layoff was not aged based but facts are facts. When they let people go you were given a list that showed the ages of everyone in the plant and those that were being laid off the average age of older people sure showed a pattern of age dicrimination . The management only wants to hire and keep young people at the plant due to the fact that the younger...

    We're sorry to hear of your experience while you were at IM Flash. If the behavior of your manager was as you described, that's not in keeping with what we would expect to see at IM Flash. Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback.

    I worked at IM Flash Technologies full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good pay & excellent benifits

    Cons

    Every 4 months you must switch to nights. The company leadership does not follow the preached values. They recently laid off veteran employees to cut costs. These were people who had given 10 or 15 years of hard work and dedication to the company, but were in the upper echelons of the pay scale. There promotion system is completely broken. Those who are promoted are not the hardest or most knowledgeable workers, but rather...

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at IM Flash Technologies full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance. Location location location. Employee perks. Relaxed yet professional atmosphere. It's obvious the company is trying to appeal to a wider variety of people and bring in fresh talent to the industry but they need to place more emphasis on retention. There are a lot of good employees looking for greener pastures.

    Cons

    4 month nights/days rotations. Once you get settled into a shift it's almost time to rotate. Disengaged management. Miscommunication everywhere. High turnover. We can't keep good talent. Archaic promotion system. People who spend all shift working on their promotion paperwork get promoted faster than the backbone employees who keep the equipment running.

    Advice to Management

    Start becoming more engaged with the future and promotions of your people. It is a good company to work for overall but there is certainly room for improvement.
