Company Culture

Managers at Palace could care less about FSE on site.

Support from management

Managers don't care . They do like to brag about the 1.5 mil they have in 401 k retirement.

Internal Communication

Little communication

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older employees generally have more experince requiring higher pay than new college grads. Edwards hates paying anyone a fair working wage.

Company Image

Company image is bad. What is worse is that management could care less. Long as Intel keeps writing the checks.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get out of the semiconductor vacuum business.

Company Culture

Management belittles employees in front of team. If someone is absent management talks about that person in front of their Co workers, demeaning comments, abusive comments, and the HR manager is present and participates.

Support from management

Absolutely NONE

Teamwork

The whole team is miserable, morale is very low

Freedom to work independently

It's all independent because management does not know the job

Internal Communication

Your not allowed to voice your opinion, employees are always wrong

Career Development

Horrible. No opportunity

Environmental Friendliness

Other departments are friendly

Work-Life Balance

Over worked. You have a laptop and are expected to work from home even when you are sick

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to clean house from the harassing management team in the customer care group and the HR manager

Being harrassed

Company Culture

Edwards Vacuum is a massive company and when they say they are the top of what they do they are serious. This was a great company to be apart of and the overall company culture was very good.

Support from management

Management on the local level is the biggest problem for this company. The overall company is great but at our location the local manager/supervisors were lacking in leadership. They do not support the team leads/shift leads when support is requested or needed. As different people move in and out of the positions in management this is of course likely to change.

Teamwork

The individual teams/shifts were tight groups and we supported each other very well. There was nothing we couldn't handle when we were working together.

Freedom to work independently

As Night shift Team Lead we were more on our own by default. But self reliance and not having someone over your shoulder was very nice. Day shift does tend to have a bit more oversight/less autonomy.

Internal Communication

Communication on shift and at shift change over is usually pretty good. However communications with management as none were on shift during our time slot was difficult and at times non-existent.

Gender Equality

We only had a few women working with us but they were never treated differently than the men and were an integral part of the team.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There is a "good ol' boys" mentality with some of the older/high time employees.

Career Development

They are good about moving you up and around to get experience in different things. You are in control of your path and Edwards is good about helping you find your goals.

Overall compensation for your work

The pay was the best I've ever had. And the benefits package is very nice.

Office / Work Environment

Working in a SubFab is noisy and not always comfortable but Global Foundries (our site) was not too unpleasant.

Environmental Friendliness

Care for the environment is top of the pile concern for Edwards.

Work-Life Balance

While there was plenty of overtime, we were working a stagger shift, meaning 12 hour shifts, 4 days then 3 days. So we had long weekends no matter what. It was very nice.

Company Image

I was very proud to work for them, I enjoyed working for them and would do so again if the opportunity came about.

Job Security

As work sometimes is dependent on customer needs there is always the chance of a site terminating the Edwards contract or not renewing it. But Edwards is the best at what they do so it's not something we worried to much about.

Handicapped Accessibility

This was a non issue at our site.

Workplace Safety

Safety briefs, and constant training are given for safety issues. 5S is huge to this company. Employees are encouraged to participate in presentations.

Challenging Work

Troubleshooting the systems we used was always a great challenge and the part of the job I loved the most. No matter how long you work on these systems they always manage to toss you a curve ball you have never seen before. It was a lot of fun for me.

Inclusive / Diverse

We had people from all walks of life, all different backgrounds working on our team.
