    I have been working at Nanometrics

    Pros

    Dynamic environment.
    Get to move from project to project often and learn new things.
    Get to work with people from multiple departments, easy to see "the large picture".
    Decent amount of independence. Can take on and handle projects as I see fit.
    Decent health plan.

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted or get a raise.
    Gaining visibility at the lower levels is difficult.
    Besides health plan, no real perks for employees. No food provided, no transportation deals provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nanometrics is more of a "place to work". Not a place to have a career. Need to focus on bringing the people at the bottom up, and maintaining competitive wages, benefits, and perks.

    I have been working at Nanometrics

    Pros

    Flexible hours, and a stress free work environment. People easy to get along with, and a good vacation plan. Pleasent work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Management a little out of touch and disfunctional. Possibility of salary increase and promotions very small. Top heavy enterprise with little in the way of rewards for good work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees more, improve productivity and recognize efforts better. The origanization is getting increasingly top heavy. Better employee empathy skills required.
