Working at ESI

  • Looking in Portland, Oregon 80 months ago
    Try Sherri Holstad at holdstads@esi.com for the HR contact. My advice is don't get your hopes up high -- and make sure you protect yourself. I was really frustrated by their hiring process. I waited two months between my first and second interviews. Their HR contact, Ruchi Nandar, kept sending me these teaser emails asking me if I was still interested in the opening I was interviewing for. This company supposedly installed an SAP system in 9 months. Most SAP implementations require 2-3 years. Yet it took three months for them to decid on a simple administrative position. It seems they have their priorities backwards. There's also the issue that their former CEO/CFO -- I think his last name is Dooley -- is facing a 10+ year prison sentence for financial misconduct in 2003. The only reason ESI has a business is because Samsung and Hynix, their two largest customers, don't want to waste their time building their own UV lasers, yet both could.

    Every business has its own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Esi? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Esi?
