    Pros

    A good place to try & learn, performers are rewarded. Engineers are prized above all

    Pros

    Production Fab operator's worked 12hr shift's, 3 day/4 day work week's. The company was very competitive in the semiconductor industry. The benefit's, 401k, health were very good. Management was very good to all employee's.

    Cons

    Their weren't many negative's to complain about working for this company in my 36yrs. with Siliconix Inc (vishay). Only thing negative were pay increase's, just cent's on the dollar every year.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe upgraded the fab sooner to keep it open a few more year's instead of running it into the ground with older equipment. It was hard finding part's last several year's when equipment broke down.

    The pay sucks. Never see upper management. the first 5 years you only get 10 days of PTO. As a engineering Tech you can never move up to management or be an engineer.

    better pay will make employees happier. Have a way to move up without degree and come and meet some of your hard working employees.
