Manager (Current Employee) – Andover, MA – June 30, 2016
The company overall, is just OK. Work hours are flexible and benefits are decent. The issue is upper management. Often making rash decisions which negatively impact the company and its employees. The employees can't say anything without fear of recourse.
An extremely dynamic and unstable environment. I would not recommend Vicor to a friend.
Upper management is clueless and only cares about the bottom line, not their employees.
Manufacturing Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Andover, MA – November 7, 2015
As an intern at Vicor I had many opportunities. I began in the SMT department where I worked with solder paste screen printers as well as automated pick and place machines. As I excelled in that role I was asked to move my focus towards the manufacturing of a new product family. I spent the majority of my time at Vicor working on improving process capabilities to develop robust manufacturing processes for the new product line. I worked closely with planning, manufacturing, and design groups to drive towards production.
Manufacturing Engineering Co-op (Former Employee) – Andover, MA – April 26, 2015
Great culture to work for. Compensated food made it cheaper to eat there than make your own lunches. Friendly employees, most people around the company seems like they're in a good mood and always willing to help with the development of the company
Robust industrial experience brought about by engagement in complex and challenging projects. Opportunity to be a significant contributor.
Manufacturing Engineer Co-Op (Former Employee) – Andover, MA – June 10, 2014
Working at Vicor has been a very positive and constructive experience in my collegiate career. The projects I undertook allowed me to:
- Learn what goes on in maintaining a production/assembly line - Industry standard statistical analysis, graphing and technical writing - Quality Control (PFMEA, Control Plans) - Working efficiently with cross-functional disciplines - Problem solving and associating it to its $ value - Communicating with vendors - See how the ISO/TS system works and how it is implemented into a factory setting. - Broadened my thinking level by forcing me to come up with more than one design/solution for any problem that may occur.
encouraging work environment, delicious and cheap food, overtime pay, no strict dress code
may need extra time commitment depending on production issues/timeline
