My position was deemed redundant after Asian company acquired.
Pros: advancement for non-exempt engineering people is decent
Cons: non-excempt production employees seem to be regarded as different species w/ different rules.
I had a good run there, but that's life in the semiconductor industry, no? After almost 9 years working there, not a single call from anyone to ask, "Everything ok?" or "Sorry to hear about what happened". This speaks to the culture, I think-Everyone is used to it.
