ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – October 24, 2017
I enjoyed working for this company overall, however, it is very male dominated and finding a female in there is like finding a needle in a haystack. If you're a female with a stronger personality, I don't think its received well either-especially if you have good ideas. The atmosphere, being as small as it is in size, is pretty petty as well. It's unfortunate too, because some people are very passionate about what they do and those are the ones getting overlooked here. I think the company also wants to hire very young people out of school to pay them less, which shows once you are here and see how green and inexperienced some are. Some of the new management is great, and some old managers are too set in there ways and lack passion. My advice would be, stop letting females go and hire some women for more male dominated roles to balance it out a bit.

Would still be there had they not relocated. typical day get with 4 supervisors see what was running some days they would run things not posted on board so make sure everyone was on same page and get product ready. Learned about vacuum systems. hardest part when 2 machines would breakdown at same time. Most enjoyable people everyone was willing to help everyone it was a great team.
Environmental Health Services (Current Employee) – Woburn, MA – October 17, 2017
Entegris is a wonderful place to work at and very good chances of growth within the company if you are a full time employee hired through the company within, i however started through a agency and my department is not looking to hire anybody full time at the moment wish leads me to secure my employment elsewhere if the opportunity arises. i would highly recommend anybody looking to work in the EHS safety field to apply and learn from what they have to offer.
I worked really hard, only to be met with just very little recognition of my efforts. It is a male dominated work place which isn't a huge deal for me, but it was just the casual sexism that really got to me.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Burnet, TX – August 10, 2017
I enjoy my everyday at entegris. My job is not stressful at all. As long as you remember to treat work as work and nothing else the time flies by very quickly. The people I work with are ok people to work with. Its a very friendly environment.
They would always buy food for the employees like every friday.
Make chemistry formulations in the a.m. Test them on various semi- conductor materials in the p.m. I have learned a segment of the semi-conductor industry. Management is tough and fair. The hardest part of my job is running various chemistries at different temp. and times. I enjoy being part of an important project, and getting positive results.
Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – May 23, 2017
No growth, under paid and expected to work a lot of overtime during the weekend to keep up with demand. Going in as a temp do not expect to become a permanent employee unless you push for it. Management likes to make promises that they do not keep. Overall it isn't a bad place to work for in the meantime but if your looking for a job to stick around long term and make it a career this is not the place.
Product Manager (Current Employee) – TX – March 20, 2017
Overall a good place to work at, Entegris strives to make work less of a chore and more of a community feel. The company is well diverse and has locations all over the world which enable close customer relationships and access.
Maintenance (Former Employee) – Decatur Texas – February 15, 2017
I lasted a short time at Poco Graphite. What a horrible place to work. Unless you are part of the upper management or in a technical part of the building, it was hard to show up every day. With the poor management and nasty dirty environment I say stay away. Especially the maintenance dept. DO NOT GET A JOB in the maintenance dept. The whole dept is full of immature men that find every chance to make you feel like a child.
Operator (Former Employee) – Burnet, TX – January 10, 2017
This company used to be great. It was bought by Entegris and they wouldn't know how to keep talented people if it was given to them on a silver platter. Very 80's when it comes to people management and the HR team is very weak.
