hire and fire

Lots of employee turnover, difficult place to work. Some roles may require frequent long trips over-seas, which may also require late-night calls with over-seas vendors. Some projects were working on neat or new technologies while a significant amount of work was required to maintain legacy products.

Objective driven company

I am able to work from home most days and only need to go into the office when needed. Everyone is supportive and responsive. Compensation could be better, however.

Poor compensation and limited career development

I would say this place is a good place to retire since the work-life balance is pretty good. while it is definitely not a good place for a young person who eager to develop a career. I cannot learn new things, my manager is timid and overcautious, etc...

Terrible work to place

Too much politics and poor management. People are taking a long break but the night supervisor doesn't care. They typically take a 1-hour each break plus 1-hour lunch but they only clocking out for 30 minutes lunch. The company is a no business direction at all. CEO always talking good stuff but the company is not doing good.


Long break. Long lunch


Night supervisor needs to be more fair.

Bland days

Typically I managed 3 desks during the day. I felt stuck with my ambition and nowhere to apply it. It was a bland "job as usual" atmosphere. Many of my peers were confused on their job descriptions and inconsistencies from management. It was not a collaborative environment from the office of the CEO down through all other levels; we were very siloed.


The office location WAS right off the freeway next to a shopping center, there were plenty of office, shopping, and lunch options, medical/dental were good


Bland uneventful work environment, time off was seen as a burden to others, much too siloed.

Great benefits and initiatives for diversity and inclusion

It’s a good place to work. The people are nice but they’re not very outgoing. Everyone is always willing to help. We’ve been able to work from home (if your role permits) and there hasn’t been downsizing in its workforce during COVID-19. If you are hired as a full time employee, they will help with paying off student debt.


Good benefits


The company is fairly new and is still trying to figure out its ways

Culture is good

Company is diverse of different of all races, and big age range, open doors policy, list of one on one meeting with supervisor, safety is number one and in the floor ( fab ) five S is followed.

Great people to work with.

Learned many new production and process skills. Production environment can lead to unstable work, layoffs. Good benefits. Family like culture. Product future uncertain.


Pays well


Punch in Punch out timecard system. Work can be unstable.

Productive and Fun

No bad things to say. Really productive environment. Sometimes workload might be overwhelming. Good pay and bonuses. ESPP, insurance, DTO, Friday Bagel are some of the incentives.

Over all good

Nice people just have to get with the times. This is not necessary. People need to evaluate their interview experience. People are really nice but, not open to change and progression.

Awesome career

Awesome place to work with career opportunities. If the company didn't move i think i would still have a job there. I got along with the team and was always updated about training on the job.

This company really helped push me and helped me learn and grow as an engineer.

The company culture was great and the people working there were helpful. The most enjoyable part was the work and the management that helped me grow as an engineer.

Competative work environment focused on being at the top of the industry

The company culture places an emphasis on "winning". This translates to an eagerness in upper management to achieve lofty goals, and a slightly stressful working environment for technical personnel.

Great work environment

Coworkers were willing to help you with difficult tasks. Friendly environment. Each year we received a fun company party and picnic which showed that they cared about their employees.
