    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.

    Pros

    freind work envirment. local mangement is very easy going. the benefits are very good. the coworks are fun and make good friends.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    It's the leader in the industry in the electronic component or semiconductor. If you continue to be in that field, it's a good name to be on your resume and learn knowledge.

    Cons

    It's an old industry. Many people have worked there more than 10 years. There is no innovation left. Everyone is old school in a way and very settled. Not a place for young people to work if you have a big dream and ambition...

    I worked at Vishay Siliconix (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family-like atmosphere. Allowed flexibility in defining work and a creative atmosphere.

    Cons

    Vishay as a corporation had no stock option incentives. Executive management had higher levels of perks such as cars.

    Advice to Management

    Five year plan to double revenue is the cardinal rule for executive management. That was not the rule. Survivability quarter-to-quarter seemed to be the rule. If you don't know how to double revenue in five years or can't convince corporate how to do it, then hire the subject matter experts that can guide the company to do one or both. Doubling revenue makes a family-like atmosphere jump for joy.
