    Excellent working environment. Excellent people. Each employee is able to make a difference.

    I worked at MKS Instruments as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was an intern, so I can only describe so much. I worked in one of their smaller branches, but the team was great. As far as work-life balance goes, it seems a lot of times, the employees got out at a reasonable time, but a handful felt pressed to stay much longer than they really would have liked. It seems they are not super strict about time-off, and the company makes pretty decent strides at maintaining a good value system and employee care.

    Cons

    Not too much, since I really enjoyed working here. It was probably the smaller office, but they were pretty stingy about basic office and technological equipment. It also seems they are pretty understaffed and fairly overworked because of lack of proper materials at times.

    Advice to Management

    Do not know too much about it because they seem to stay pretty distant from the people they manage. Though it seems the people in upper management are very good at their job and exemplify management to the truest extent of the word.
