    I have been working at Veeco Instruments full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Exciting technology. Dynamic market. High level professionals. World leader in AFM. Wide variety of other technologies: film deposition, epitaxy, optical and AFM metrology. Clear business and industry orientation.

    Cons

    Not that many Cons. May be a bit too much politics where it should not be. Sometimes unclear distribution of duties and chain of comand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I guess a bit more transparency in decision making and less politics will be beneficial for the company.

    Pros

    Great group of individuals to work with. Challenging work and always supported to learn new skills. Feel welcomed and great atmosphere for team driven work.

    Cons

    Hard to find opportunities to advance in the company without PHD. Feels like lots of management for an equivalent number of workers at times.
