    I have been working at Siltronic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Profit sharing Won't be laid off right away, just sent home without pay when it gets "slow." Don't worry though, they'll keep at least 3 people on overtime while you're being sent home.

    Cons

    Slow to adapt to change Low pay compared to other companies in the industry (This includes engineers and maintenance which both affect the quality of support Operators get, response times for "down" tools, as well as additional "busy work" being created for Operators that doesn't really serve a functional purpose and has nothing to do with improving safety, quality, or output. ) Vacation is granted on a first come...

    Advice to Management

    Provide one formal written set of policies that is available to everyone so there are no questions from either employees, management, or HR. It seems like there is no formal written set of policies so that those policies can be changed on a whim. No other company I have ever worked at has employed a similar policy. Clean house. You need to dump your current shift leaders who are swapping work days for a $500 incentive...

    Pros

    Very organized and methodical company. They were very good at setting out a strategy and sticking to it. Global leadership is excellent

    Cons

    Local president has a tough job, but often made promote/firing decisions based upon who he liked/didn't like.

    Advice to Management

    You are set up for a few very good years with pricing going up, use the profitability in Portland to set yourself up for the next downturn.

    I worked at Siltronic

    Pros

    To have a job. That's about it.

    Cons

    Uppr management is very poor. Training is severly lacking. The place is been on a downturn for the past couple of decades. Benefits are cut back, small pay raises, agressive move to downsize.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training for engineers. Don't be so greedy!
