    I have been working at Rudolph Technologies (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    compensation, opportunity to travel, opportunity to grow

    Cons

    requirement to travel (coach) to Asia, no respect for family, personal time, life outside of work

    Advice to Management

    dont micro-manager, especially when you dont know the area better than your subordinates

    NEVER promise a title, and then never deliver - that is how you kill enthusiasm, commitment, and employee happiness

    Pros

    Some very smart people in the company, and interesting products and technology to work on.

    Cons

    Multiple acquisitions has led to isolated locations, poor communication, and very little team building across sites

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees! Many are treated like they are easily replaceable. Experienced sales, service, and engineers are discounted too easily. And when bad decisions are made at the Executive level about projects or company structure, nobody is held responsible.

    Pros

    Best learning experience. Got to work in real semiconductor world. Customer Suport, project deadline and great work culture

  5. "Senior Field Service Engineer"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Not micro managed. Usually given ample time to prepare for job and to set your own travel schedule. Usually not asked to work overtime or weekends unless you want to.

    Cons

    On occasion can be asked to travel on short notice. Travel can be over 75% some months. Hard to belong to local clubs or attend any local training or college classes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees updated more on what's going on within the company across the different business units.

    I have been working at Rudolph Technologies full-time

    Pros

    The company benefits are on par with most. I certainly have no complaints about how I personally been compensated. 401k match, bonus program are a plus.

    Cons

    The semiconductor industry is a cyclical industry and not for the faint of heart. Investment in new acquisitions and new business ventures could be better.

    I have been working at Rudolph Technologies full-time

    Pros

    You will not be bored. Rudolph is very customer focused so there is a constant stream of new projects and accounts coming in monthly. Rudolph prefers a lean organization requiring above average hours, but in turn the compensation is also above average. There are a lot of great people who want to do well and work hard as a team. There is a fun committee which focuses team building activities.

    Cons

    Rudolph executive management believes the best way to grow the company is through acquisition rather than organic growth. Failed acquisitions have hurt more than successful ones have helped. Rudolph is very focused on quarterly numbers and head count which results in a bias towards short term management.

    Advice to Management

    Rudolph's bias towards lean is hindering growth. Rudolph's business unit structure is unnecessarily complex for the size of the company.

    Senior Management provides less insight about the company.
