Process Consultant (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 14, 2017
I worked with just one group, and I helped them map out a manufacturing process. They were nice people and gave me room to try new things. I always wondered what it would be like to work there full time.
Wafer Fabrication Operator (Former Employee) – Woburn, MA – May 11, 2017
This place is trying to make itself Intel Jr. I ran 3 tools that metallized wafers made of silicon and GaAS. Sputtering was a new skill that I had never done before and for that I am thankful of the new skill. However the management team didn't seem to talk to each other and I'd get different instructions on what to run. I felt micromanaged to death.

Fabrication Technician (Former Employee) – Woburn, MA – March 11, 2016
I myself love the job. I love everyone there, we help each other no matter what. Basically the shift itself, we bond like a family. Every time anyone has trouble with something, there's always someone there to help. The only downfall is the management itself. They do not acknowledge how much effort the employees put in to reach their daily goals. They push and push and never see that we all work hard. The only thing that would come to their attention is when something goes wrong. No appreciation whatsoever not even a thank you. Very disrespectful at times, no one says anything because people have families to take care of.
RF Design/Validation Engineer Internship (Former Employee) – Newbury Park, CA – January 31, 2016
You are given a deadline, and it is your job to make sure you are keeping up with the tests and data by the deadline. Management is very helpful and friendly. It is a relaxing work culture, where nobody is constantly pressuring you as long as your work is complete.
Free lunches during meetings, wonderful work culture, they really value their employees.
