Pros

Good benefits. Free fruit twice a week and snacks at employee meetings in good times. Middle management is good, allows employees lot of latitude without micro management.

Cons

Upper management is bloated. Too many VPs trying to run day to day operations instead of figuring out long term strategy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trim the fat in upper management for lean times. Lose non performing and revenue dissipating groups without playing favorites. Resist old boys club type think.

    Pros

    Close to home, decent benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Many. Amateur management. Review meetings are usually spent finding a victim and publicly humiliating that individual. Promotions and advancements are based on cronie-ism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote staff based on performance, not who sucks up to whom. Also, be professional. There is NO reason the publicly dress down any staff member. There are waaaaay too many VP's for a small company. Remove at least half of them. Finally, remove Mario, Igor, Ben Eldrige, and one or two more from the payroll. They are the primary reason that FormFactor stock is in the tank.
