    Pros

    Optical inspection and repair tool in FPD LCD industry is not bad. I worked in the division merged from Photon Dynamics. People are experienced and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Small working group. Business process is not optimized due to the merging process, so it took a lot of effort to find out how to process pretty standard process.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    - A true industry leader
    - Most of the managers and employee are very nice and supportive
    - Lots of opportunities for R&D people
    - Can truly learn about doing business in APAC

    Cons

    - Most of the business trips are to APAC only and minimum 2 weeks - a real burden on the family
    - Operates in technological niches and therefore the industry knowledge is mostly irrelevant in Israel
    - The company is not growing. Constant pressure on profits
    - When there are profits, they don't trickle down to employees
    - Low compensation relative to high-tech industry
    - Increasing office politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Review compensation policy
    - Review 2 week trip policy - cause of a lot of distress
    - Kill unsuccessful projects

    Good place to start, not for life

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    You can work at the headquarters and see and influence critical decisions.
    Some bright people work there, but their numbers are getting smaller everyday because they leave.

    Cons

    Low compensation, non competitive salaries.
    Good people are leaving the company.
    Most development is moving to APAC region.
    No real innovation in the past 10 years - usually reuse existing concepts, and don't understand why competitors pass them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more chances. Otherwise, competitors will take over the market.
    Rethink who your manafement team is. Some of them should not be there. Spending many years in a company is not a reason to keep someone as a manager.
    You are loosing good people. Think why this happens and fix it.
