    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SVTC Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good idea to form a company offering fab services. The market potential was great.

    Cons

    Management didn't know what they were doing. Bunch of people out of Cypress without vision got together to form this sinking ship. No wonder they shut down.

    Advice to Management

    Look around how successful companies are run. Should have had a long term focus.

    Pros

    Austin facility survived as Novati Technologies
    Provided a valuable service to local semiconductor start up companies
    Had a strong management team other than CEO and CFO
    Had a great location

    Cons

    CEO and CFO drove the company into the ground.
    Overly aggressive management style back-fired
    Highly confrontational culture led by the CEO

    Advice to Management

    Don't be a CEO or CFO anywhere else.

    Pros

    Broad level of responsibility / excellent exec and mid-management team / very talented and competent colleagues, especially the engineers. Excellent customer support across all aspects of the engagements. Broad customer base, keeps things interesting. Award winner: DoE / Sunshot Program

    Cons

    SVTC Technology LLC is the parent company and is not really aligned with the Solar BU. Likely to change in the near future which would be good for the Solar BU.

    Pros

    Good for political players
    Performance measured by relationships and not by work delivered

    Cons

    No water provided within the company. Need to bring own water daily.
    Manager is also contending for your position

    Advice to Management

    Try to discuss why people are leaving so frequently.

    Pros

    This is a contract manufacturing company so you see different products. The weight to tasks is moving parts - no more no less.

    Cons

    Being a contract manufacturer the constraint is cost, and this comes at the expense of efficiency and quality of work and product. Some customers are abusive and management will not preserve your dignity. Environment is not supportive of creative work.
