    I worked at INFICON full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free coffee in the cafeteria
    Good vacation/sick time package
    401K match
    Yearly bonus when company does well financially
    Most of the technicians and engineers there were really great people. Fun to work with, very laid back and down to earth.
    Many company events set up (5Ks, trips to zoo, charity, etc)

    Cons

    Some toxic employees stick around way too long before being identified by management and are removed (but they usually realize they exist)
    Training in manufacturing was a continuously changing process. Hard to train workers when you keep changing the training methods.
    Much of the work, that required at least an associates in mechanical or electrical technology, was stripped down and over simplified. Much of the work involved basic assembly and putting labels on product, or simple automated tests. Not very challenging or engaging.

    Advice to Management

    Management was pretty good, and has a clear vision to help the company succeed in the future.

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

    Pros

    Very good company to work for with an excellent work life balance. Wages are fair for the Syracuse office. Senior management is excellent and keeps all employees informed in monthly company meetings. Training is very good and most employees are very long term and their experience is valued. Employees are empowered to make changes for the better of the organization, and it's easy, with a very open minded senior management.

    Cons

    Not many, I could say that the health insurance could have a lower monthly contribution as compared to other companies in the area. Paid time off is packed into the Christmas holiday and you generally get a very nice holiday season off, some way better than others, but not much the rest of the year which is a sacrifice, making it appear as a great benefit but comparable to similarly sized companies.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job!! Keep it up!!

    Pros

    Very easy place to work where the company cares about emploies

    Cons

    The "very easy" comment above alows some people to take advantage of the company

    Advice to Management

    Its time to understand the competence and lack ther of of your direct reports.
    Some need badly to go away

    I have been working at INFICON full-time

    Pros

    This is the type of workplace where your title may say one thing, but you actually do many other things as well. There is quite a bit of overlap but this just opens the door for opportunity to grow into positions that don't even exist. That's saying a LOT since this is also the type of company where the average time people have worked here is beyond 10 years!

    Cons

    The only thing close to a "con" is keeping in mind that this company is worldwide. So even though you work in the Lichtenstein location or Syracuse-NY, you have to keep in mind there are many people that are needed to make corporate level decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep providing opportunity to those that are worthy!

  10. "It's ok!"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Healthcare when hired constant hours and overtime is not mandatory and flex hours in the summer.

    Cons

    No room for growth you stay where you are hired. You start out through a temp agency. Pay is low for the kind of work unless you are hired with a PHD. Alot of micro - managing. They do not follow there own policies.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more especially to the ones that do very important skilled jobs where without those people the company can not function or make money.
