A miniature Theranos of the semiconductor automation industry There's a reason most of the reviews here have the word "toxic" or "unethical" in their headlines; the so-called "executives" of the company firmly believe in the "ship it then fix it" sales model and act as if they were the original inventors of this concept. The lack of any basic technical knowledge among senior staff is hilariously bad. If you try to critique or constructively criticize the sales approach -- or "bring light" to "whispers in the dark" as described by another most likely fake review -- they will either brush off your comments as being "too negative", tell you that there is nothing to worry about and this is "how companies grow", or capriciously create a new senior management role to act as a wedge between you and them. Speaking of fake reviews, there is a very high chance that there are fake reviews here written by management to counteract the more accurate negative reviews of the company. This isn't even the extent of the dishonesty and lack of integrity present at the company; as other reviews have mentioned, data is sometimes manipulated or even completely fabricated to mislead clients into a PO. Overall, senior management act and behave exactly like the senior management of Theranos as reported by John Carreyrou in "Bad Blood" -- capricious, vacuous, egotistical, political, incompetent, unethical, toxic, and even malicious if you attempt to correct them or challenge their fragile egos. In addition to the senior management troubles at the company, the product and research the company has are largely bogus. On the software side of things, the main software product barely works and is only somewhat viable due to a large number of software patches being rolled out to customers. Software development is thought of as an "implementation detail" rather than being a guiding principle of the company and one to continually work on and improve. People who have no business speaking about or advising on software practices are allowed to make critical decisions about the software design and implementation. On the research side of things, things aren't much better. Most of the research projects attempt to follow the "salami slicing" model of research and barely improve upon any existing material. Any progress on the projects is greatly exaggerated internally and to investors. All of these problems bring us back to square one: lack of basic professionalism, decency, integrity, and respect for the company and its employees. If you respect yourself and your craft, go somewhere else.
