    I worked at Orbotech full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flat Panel Division merged over from Photon Dynamics. Based in San Jose, CA
    Great people and willing to work hard.
    Comparable Silicon Valley compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Lot of travel to customer sites in Asia
    New management is Israeli-based has no idea how to treat Americans, and moreover Californians.
    Exodus of good people as it is not hard to find jobs in Silicon Valley
    Current SW Manager is overbearing and only knows how to use a stick. No praise, reward, just the stick...
    Limited market/saturated market

    Advice to Management

    Do not overwork people and treat them with respect or else sooner or later they leave. This is Silicon Valley and there are other choices.
