you'll be glad when your 12 hours are done
Wafer Fabrication Operator (Former Employee) –  Woburn, MA11 May 2017
This place is trying to make itself Intel Jr. I ran 3 tools that metallized wafers made of silicon and GaAS. Sputtering was a new skill that I had never done before and for that I am thankful of the new skill. However the management team didn't seem to talk to each other and I'd get different instructions on what to run. I felt micromanaged to death.
Pros
the people i worked with
Cons
too many chiefs, not enough indians

Regular o sea no es buena
Almacenista Jr. (Current Employee) –  Mexicali, B.C.13 January 2017
Las evaluaciones anuales para los aumentos son ridículos de 2 a 5 pesos por año y para ganar una vacante en una posición mejor es casi imposible, en donde está su Lema de apoyarte si quieres superarte? Es pura Basura. Además de Nos Han quitado muchos beneficios como el bono anual de producción, el derecho a la posada navideña, bonos de turno nocturno, los sueldos están muy baratos .
Pros
Los turnos de 3 y 4 días de descanso
Cons
Prometen mucha la superación y cuando aplicas a una vacante nunca te apoyan
