    Former Employee - Engineering Director in Somerset, NJ

    I worked at Veeco Instruments full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting technology
    Good team environment at engineer level
    Pay well, but they have to

    Cons

    Poor work life balance
    Confrontational non supportive executive team
    Clique of a few senior executives who protect each other and can do no wrong
    Not diversified and focused on highly cyclical market
    It you relocate, you are going to be an end entered servant for 2-3 years with poor annual raises until the payback period is over
    Significant voluntary and involuntary turnover at all levels
       - layoffs are an annual or more frequent occurrence
       - worked for 5 different VP/GMs over 6 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Replace a few senior executives who foster the conflict
    2) Diversify for stable growth
    3) Survey your employees to see what their perceptions are then act to improve your company and policies.
    4) Focus on your customers

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
