Good place to work if you can take the stress
Fab Equipment Maint Tech (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, MNNovember 18, 2014
A typical day at work starts with a meeting and then you suit up and go into the cleanroom to maintain the equipment. For someone who has done this work recently and for years, this is a good place to work. The experienced technicians they have are the best.

If you don't have as much experience or it's not recent, be prepared to drink knowledge directly from the water mains. You will have to learn half a dozen software systems and half a dozen hardware systems all at the same time. You will have to get trained up fast and make no mistakes or you will not survive the temp to hire process. They have too few techs to begin with and they still chew through temps rather frequently.

They pull no punches in meetings and you may hear yelling and swearing occasionally, but I'm a no BS kind of guy and did not find this aspect of working here bothersome.

Permanent employees seem to do well as far as pay and benefits but the stress level is very high. Many experienced personnel there would take a good opportunity to apply elsewhere in a picosecond if the opportunity presented itself. This stress is attributed to constantly competing with China for orders, however, that competition is deliberately conceived by the company to drive costs down.

Things I liked about this company are the pay, the constant drive for continuous improvement in everything, and the CEO presents himself as a no-nonsense get-things-done honest kind of guy, as opposed to the constant stream of scripted baloney you get from other major corporations.
Pros
good pay and benefits, challenging and rewarding work
Cons
the stress. you can never be good enough or fast enough. ever.

Get your job done and you are left alone
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Beaverton, ORJuly 4, 2013
Company revolves around TJ Rodgers.
As many VP's as FAE's in the field.
Lots of VP's with no reports.
When they reorganized they shutdown entire locations.
Should have reassigned best people to central locations
Pros
lots of freedom onsite to work and enjoy it too.
Cons
interference from ceo slowed company down

Would be a good place to start
Fab Equipment Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, MNJanuary 1, 2014
Cypress would be a good place to start in the semiconductor industry, but staying there would set you back and give a negative impression of the semiconductor industry. They abuse employees with a harsh work environment and public, verbal bashing.
