    I worked at Photon Dynamics


    getting to know the people and having a feeling of a small team working well together. Benefits and compensations were satisfactory and comparable to other companies in the bay area.


    Too much work pressure at times - lot of travel even for engineers specially during installs of systems at customer fabs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would help to be a bit more communicative with the various groups both here and in other geographical locations.

    No opinion of CEO
