Stressful place of employment
System Test Technician (Former Employee) –  East Syracuse, NYJuly 31, 2018
The culture of the company has declined over the past 3+ years. The current management has eroded the moral to a very low point resulting in this to be a difficult environment.

Technical Company with Ample Opportunity
Employee (Current Employee) –  Syracuse, NYDecember 1, 2017
Pros
This is the type of workplace where your title may say one thing, but you actually do many other things as well. There is quite a bit of overlap but this just opens the door for opportunity to grow into positions that don't even exist. That's saying a LOT since this is also the type of company where the average time people have worked here is beyond 10 years!

Cons
The only thing close to a "con" is keeping in mind that this company is worldwide. So even though you work in the Lichtenstein location or Syracuse-NY, you have to keep in mind there are many people that are needed to make corporate level decisions.

Advice to Management
Keep providing opportunity to those that are worthy!

Excellent place to work
Individual Contributor (Current Employee) –  syracuse, nyJuly 12, 2016
INFICON is a hidden treasure of Syracuse. It is a great place to work. There have been cultural changes for the better! Management is always encouraging growth and learning. The Company provides opportunities to participate in charity events for the community and offers wellness programs. The benefits are competitive and pay is decent. I enjoy work that is challenging and since I have stated I am constantly learning new things. I love how management is open to listening to different ways of doing things. They also encourage open communication and feedback. The only downside is how long it takes to grow in the Company since there are few opportunities.
Pros
Wellness, Company events, and learning
Cons
Smaller company making it difficult to grow into another position

Good for short term employment, but not for long term.
AMS Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  East Syracuse, NYSeptember 18, 2015
Most of your average everyday workers at Inficon are great, from your assemblers to your engineers. A lot of good people work there. Teamwork is great. But management is terrible. Just because someone is a good engineer / technician does not mean they will make a good manager / supervisor. This realization is missed by Inficon. But despite the poor management they seem to do well because their base of the company, the average Joe, holds the company together. Pay is middle of the road. Raises are below to slightly below the norm. Opportunity to grow for a select few only. Most, not all, who have been there 10+ years have become jaded. This creates a negative atmosphere and uncomfortable work environment. Overall it is a good company to work for short term, but I would not recommend staying long term. Get in, work a few years, then take your experience and move on to a place with more opportunity to grow and that is more stable.
Pros
Clean environment, HR does extras for the company employees
Cons
Very poorly managed, little room to grow, especially as an engineer / technician, poor training

Good place to be for outside activities
Stockroom Attendant (Current Employee) –  Syracuse, NYNovember 12, 2013
Inficon does not advance employees unless they have a 3.0 average. They do not reward experience or knowledge, they only look for college degrees. It's a great company if you have a lot of outside activities. They have a great vacation policy as well as a great sick time and personal time policy. As a whole, their outdated practices will never change since everyone there with the power to change anything prefers not to.
Pros
Free coffee, a lot of vacation time
Cons
No advancement, short pay

Loved the cafeteria, the friendly coworkers and how secure rooms and the building itself was.
Board Test Technician and Service coordinator (Former Employee) –  East Syracuse, NYMarch 17, 2013
The management was informative and on the ball and all had clear and respectful communications with fellow employees. HR was always helpful if a need or question arose and for my interaction was always polite. My job was educational and a constant fast pace most of the time. Multiple jobs at one time which I enjoyed and making sure every product was scanned and recorded in a timely manner. Over all the best job I ever had.
Pros
company functions with positive employees
Cons
temp work and not enough work to stay busy
