I already have another job lined up, but got them to agree to a start date in March. That will give me time to sell the house and maybe get layoff benefits in February. The thing is the new employer suggested the start date so I could get lay off pay. Even they know it's happening.

I was a process technician at intel, came here.. asked my MSM, who directed me to my operations manager to ask about career development and what it takes to earn my way from principal technician to staff technician. The operations manager said it’s not common and he isn’t sure what it would even look like. With leaders like these I’m not sure why it’s a surprise attrition is where it is, we have no clue what we need to do to progress. Very interesting management structure, an msm almost seems pointless and the ops manager is definitely not a needed role. Looking forward to the layoffs in February to thin out the fat.

Comment about SLM high fiving each other, blaming employees, missing in action when the s$#t hits the fan was spot on. Five stars!

Simple top down management is a joke. They kiss each other's asses, blame other employees, get people to leave, and hide in their closet until things settle down.

Funny, the first 5 responses all generally say management/leadership is the reason people took a walk. All of them have a single "v" vote. Could it be that Tom or Ron checked in?

Dim future. R&D ability is too weak compared to its competitor. Also, much higher cost than its competitor. Since the start, it never make the profit and huge loss every year. Never succeed in new tech . 14NM tech, just bought from SamSung.

Wotked there 5 and 1/3 years. Left a year ago and am not aurprised by all the changes. Uses to witness gross neglect of wafer contamination. No one would ever own just how dirty the processes were in Fab 8.

We would see contamination incoming on wafers. Then our findings would get scrutinized and analyzed. Mean while we would wipe down the stage and robots with the vendors. The whole time watching the vendors get ready for their meetings with our management.

Then the talking heads would run more wafers and say...oh look it wasnt an issue. Business would start up again and no one from the ground level was ever asked what actually happened. It would simply start over again as if nothing had happened.

When I recognized the self serving nature of the people there. It was simple to walk in and tell my boss I was leaving. Despite the immediate pay raise and promotion offer, I gladly walked out.

To me semiconductor folks are nothing short of carnival workers. They come to town, set up sketchy rides, and dig out when the place no longer sustains their lifestyle.

  1. Poor outlook for the future.

  2. Upstate NY was pretty bad.

  3. Pay didn't offset the high cost of living.

  4. SLT is terrible.

  5. Wanted to get out while I could sell my house and not lose money on it.

Ebitda means nothing to me, tell me how I can impact the company .. I’m sick of hearing financials and not hearing about our product or how we can positively impact on the ground level
