    Great work environment everyone was is very knowledgeable and eager to help. Huge culture of safety which made it a great environment to work. Great relocation bonuses

    Often times long hours that are very intense. Location at times, while beautiful, can be a drag to drive out to

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are doing, creating dialogue and moving great ideas forward. Nothing else to add to this really

    Pros

    Good Salary and benefits with a rewards program for healthy living. Recently opened a Gym and work out area. Yearly employee

    Cons

    Increasing pressure to speed up process transfers and development with a more intense focus on cutting costs. Recently let go long time employees that helped build company for cost reduction reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting costs by letting go those who built the company does not build trust in your remaining employees.

    Pros

    About the only thing I would list here is pay...

    Cons

    The values, INTEGRITY, TEAMWORK, COMMITMENT, EXECUTION are values that are attempted to be lived by the workers on the floor. Managers seem to be exempted from living the values. Women here are discriminated against. There has been a push to try and change the way women are treated here but like the values it seems to be more PR than a real and tangible change. Favorites are very much part of the process if you want to move up...The "good ole boys" club here is very much in play. From all accounts it seems like the grapes are dying on the vine. I really doubt IM Flash will survive another year or two. The decisions I have seen lately are proving to be disastrous.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest managers start living the values as soon as possible or at least try. The poor management is killing morale and creating a very hostile place to work.

    Pros

    alright pay
    good benefits
    average place to start your career but not somewhere that you stay very long.

    Cons

    Promotions are almost non existent.
    Its all about who you know not what you do. Promotions have nothing to do with how hard you work.
    Managers make complete changes to different aspects of you daily job without recommendations or input from the people it affects the most.
    Management has no idea what actually goes on inside the Fab.
    To many managers and engineers that don't actually do anything.
    Toxic managers and work environment.
    Dread going to work everyday.

    Advice to Management

    During the recent layoffs I saw some of the most knowledgeable and hardworking technicians layed off. While the people that come in and sleep all day in a corner, on face book, or are just straight incompetent and break everything they touch stayed and even got promotions because they're buddy buddy with the managers . You've destroyed the morale of the company and now your hiring again a month later for all those positions that you let go. Shows great planning on your part. Your technicians are over worked under appreciated and they are the heart of the company. You sell the company very well to new hires but they quickly realize that it was all fake and nothing they do or say matters. Had a manager straight up tell me that the values and employee hand book/ company rules only apply when they want them to. When its convenient for them. Other than that they make up whatever rules they want on the spot to get what they want.
    No one cares about the gym or shiny new offices for your managers, when you cant get the tools for you technicians that they use on a daily basis. How about making some real changes like making a it a decent place to work.

    I have been working at IM Flash Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Engineering workforce, i.e. engineers are mostly knowledgeable. Fast paced, advanced technology development.

    Cons

    Good compensation to start with, but then no upward growth or even a path. No recognition of work. Unless one interacts with higher ups, no appropriate development in career. No career growth or movement within company. Within company, there is a lot of talk about "leadership", but very few, only about 10% of individuals in managerial roles actually know what leadership is.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk of providing career growth, development opportunities. Just initiating programs and letting individuals go through the same doesn't help with morale. Identify and appreciate work done by individuals by timely reward and recognition.
