TEMP/CONTRACT POSITIONS (Current Employee) –  Fremont, CADecember 11, 2017
Very interesting place to work. Opportunity to grow and expand your current skillset is present.

I was able to take some of my past experiences and turn them into opportunities, outside of my immediate department, at Mattson.

Not a very good place to work.
Material Handler/ Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CAJune 13, 2017
Very unstructured, they barely provide any training whatsoever for the new employees. The culture there is pretty miserable as a bunch of the employees are either really mean or don't care enough to help you out.
Pros
Nice Lunch Room
Cons
Everything else.

Supply Chain Management Issues
Supply Chain Employee (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CAJanuary 13, 2016
Management of the supply chain/materials group is only interested in passive employees. Any suggested idea's for improving the supply chain process will be met with futility. Many good employees have been let go for disagreeing with materials manager and supervisor. Customer satisfaction for materials support is the biggest downfall for this company. This is due to the shortcuts taken by the materials team. Much follow up business is lost. This company has implemented "furlough days" off every time the company struggles. They have a difficult time paying their vendors. This would be every other Friday off (unpaid). Contractors are always long term. Some are two to five year contract employees. Time will tell if this company survives.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything that goes along/in between with the above review.

supportive and telanted engineering staff
engineer (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CANovember 9, 2015
Small company environment, so wear many hats and learn a lot in the process. Very supportive engineering staff and always willing to train. Mgmt was average, lot of politics for a small place. I felt that mgmt did not like demanding or aggressive over achiever even if it was in the best interest of the company.
Pros
nice work/life balance
Cons
No real investment in employees

Inexperienced Supply Chain Manager
Sr. Buyer (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CAAugust 24, 2015
Years of manufacturing floor experience doesn't make a successful supply chain manager. This company doesn't realize that this is having major impact on future customer sales and new customer orders.

Poor customer support of material spares needs.
Pros
Good knowledgeable, dedicated personnel.
Cons
Politics, favoritism and management inexperience
