Project Manager & Staff Engineer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – November 15, 2016
It's a good place to establish your career as a college graduate. Colleagues are willing to help and mentor whenever you need help. Management is good in general. A new CEO usually comes on board on a 5-year basis.
Senior Product Applications Engineer (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – June 25, 2016
Company is going through a lot of changes and streamlining. So, there is a lot of instability internally. I worked as a applications engineer in the corporate marketing team. The team and manager were good.
HR Generalist/Benefits Admin (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – October 8, 2015
Had a wonderful HR team that allowed for everyone's success.
Worked all aspects of HR. Began as HR Asst, quickly promoted to Benefits Admin, then to Sr. HR Rep.
This was one of IDT's manufacturing sites (semi conductors and more). I had the privilege and honor to work with hundreds of people from all around the world. And because of my role in HR I got to meet each and every one. I problem solved much of the time, which is one of my strengths.
Was layed off in the 7th round of lay offs. Since that time, the facility was sold and manufacturing went to Ireland and China.
Sustaining Engineer (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – January 25, 2015
Co-workers here are wonderful they were like a second family to me. When the company was doing well they shared the wealth across the board. More to those that had good work ethic and took on extra responsibilities. Management was easy to work with and reasonable in their requests. Very good starting place if you are looking to expand your knowledge in the Semi-Conductor field.
Constant raises, Excellent Co-Workers, Compensation and advancement opportunities.
Lead Equipment Engineering Technician (Former Employee) – Salinas, CA – November 29, 2014
As the Lead, I owned the responsibility of interacting with management. I had 12 hours with a team to ensure the Etch department tools were serviced through PMs( Preventive Maintenance) and repaired quickly through diagnose/repair. What I learned is a series of different tool sets, and each shifts documentation of troubleshooting really was instrumental in quickly moving forward in diagnosis. The management had clear goals and rarely changed set procedures. My colleagues were the best part of the day, as they knew when and where the product was going to be at which tool and what time. The hardest part of the job was not having replacement modules and when the FAB closed down. The most enjoyable part of the job was isolating the issue, repairing it and putting the tool back to production.
Product and Testing Engineer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – July 10, 2014
Well, a good group of people to work with but too many upper level management levels changes and decisions are made in secret meetings. The new CEO seems only to care for the stock price. Honestly the stock is way overpriced now.
Our industry was analog & software intensive; IDT's historic & current dependency involved hard-coded ASIC's (clock buffers, digital switch management, and currently switching power regulators.) There was an apples-avocados interaction during every quarter telecast & forecast, ultimately our entire infrastructure was dissolved.
As our department was downsized, our local management and co-workers remained in-tact; only regional executive responsibility changed hands during the multiple levels of downsizing.
networking - working with colleagues in the semiconductor industry
unsupported - our product line was un-understood & ultimately unsupported.
