    Pros

    It pays some of the bills

    Cons

    Working every day, and everybody is always blaming somebody else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, invest in technology, stop pointing the finger, allow a person to have a life. The cost of insurance should be cheaper than a policy purchased on the internet with the same coverage. Stop charging salary employees that work 65 hours a week, time bank for a bad weather day. Keep up with the latest technology trend like your facility in England. A calm supervisor produces calm employees, and better productivity. It sounds like you have lost a good amount of senior engineers in the last couple of years.

    Pros

    Salary and Benefits ok, Bonus scheme awful

    Cons

    Awful Upper Management, no really, really Awful. If you are looking for employment keep looking...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your staff like they are good people, nurture them and they will flurish, rather than stomping on them with your size 12's.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Dallas, TX (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX (US)

    Pros

    Good benefits (health insurance, 401k with employer match, paid vacation and holidays)
    Decent work-life balance
    Nice newer office building with gym
    Free coffee and filtered water

    Cons

    Rigid hierarchy and "my way or the highway" management style
    Preference given to insiders (family, friends, church members)
    No opportunity for growth or development - promotions are unheard of
    Almost exclusive use of Chinese alienates English speakers
    Terrible morale due to management's lack of respect for employees
    Low regard for integrity and ethics throughout the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more inclusive of outsiders and more open to new ideas or suggestions. Taking away privileges is demoralizing...happy employees = better productivity.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO (US)

    Pros

    I really cant think of any other reason except that we are in tough economic times
    They have OK benefits

    Cons

    very high turn-over because of poor work environment thus you are constantly training a new person who might quit just after the training
    Morale is very low thus not a good environment for productivity and creativity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees when they make suggestions on how to improve the work place
    Stop poor planning and last minute rush
    Talking down to employees is a strategy that never works
    Senior management stop hiring a new manufacturing manager every year each one of them introduces new policies that will take a year to implement then they are gone

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lees Summit, MO (US)

    Pros

    None really. The Operators and Supervisors were some of the best people but they were severely limited by the tools they had to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management treats you like dirt. Too many meetings with not enough time to do any decent work in between. Horrible work ethics towards employees. Expected to be there 24hrs per day. Expected to have zero home life. Hugely high staff turnover including middle manager. Blame culture is the order of the day and the only way to survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Purchase a good wafer monitoring software system for the cleanroom. This one action would increase productivity and give time for all employees to work better/smarter, and would save so much time. Currently they run a paper traveller system which means you can hide wafers/yields easily, and spend many hours finding lots.
