Sr. Assembler (Current Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – March 25, 2017
Most days you are busy. But every once and a while they treat you to go out to bowling, or even free lunches. The work place is pretty easy going. You can listen to music and work at your own pace most days.
Free lunches, Great people, Fun events, Great team building
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – September 13, 2016
The atmosphere was not busy or hectic. Minimal Group work, mainly individual. I was able to get acclimated to word excel and semiconductor products. Management and co-workers were helpful and personable. A comfortable and non stressful environment. The most challenging part of the job was learning commercial invoices when shipping and the dollar amounts allowed for shipping products.
Accounting Clerk and System Support (Current Employee) – Valley City, ND – September 8, 2016
I learned alot about real world accounting vs State accounting. Management was very helpful and encouraged you to ask questions and ask for help. Co-workers were friendly, accepting and helpful. Hardest part was learning a whole new ERP. Most enjoyable part of my job was the diversity.
Innovative products, heavy with engineering personel
Procurement Specialist (Current Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – January 31, 2016
The company has been progressing towards a cross-functional working culture, this has it's challenges, but overall is a very good thing. The hardest part of the job for me is the complete autonomy with little management involvement even when escalations occur. The most enjoyable part of the job are the people.
Free Yoga 2 x weekly and softball teams.
slow/limited career advancement, lower than average pay/compensation.
There were between five and ten people who left around the same time I did. The culture is a drag and the people who work there are full of themselves. Also, it is a foreign owned company which makes it nearly impossible to move up in the ranks because of how it is structured. If you want to end up in a dead end job, then by all means go right ahead. Then again, maybe it was the experience I had and maybe it would be right for you. You never know.
Software Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Maryland – November 23, 2015
The company is very diverse but they have their issues. The management does not pay attention to complaints of the employees. The supervisors are focused on keeping the management off of their backs but it's very stressful working on certain projects. The whole company is not bad as a whole but there are projects that need to take a look at their views of management.
Nice benefits, but reactionary greed dominated ethics after rosy quotas failed
Sales (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – November 10, 2013
There are worse companies out there in terms of how employees are treated, kind of a mixed bag with FEI. I would go back if I felt that I was on a team, but that was not the case before, where mid-upper level management had their mind set (based on incomplete and dodgy info), and just wanted the worker bees to duck-step without input or feedback. Long-term goals were stressed but decisions seemed all reactionary and short-term. I wish I could take the worker bee colleagues with me.
progressive benefits package
conceited, uncommunicative management in at least some areas
