    Pros

    Open culture where you can challenge and be challenged without fear of reprisal or animosity. There are no politics at the 1st to 3rd level of the company which means people can focus on doing a good job and raising difficult issues so they can be solved. Rewarding environment for performers with lots of internal promotion and formal succession planning. Very strong and effective HR and recruiting team.

    Cons

    Cyclical industry means tightening the belt when the market drops but a culture of rewarding performance and believing in people means cutting staff costs as a last resort.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for new markets outside of general lighting to take the core (or other)technologies to exciting new segments.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Veeco Instruments.

    Interview

    Recruiter first asked how are you doing during the campus study, if any activities you've ever enjoy in.
    They would focus on why you choose their company and why internal audit position. If you have related work experiences, they would go detailed about that, like how you performed it, what is your responsibility, and what you think challenge you most.
    During the behavior question there may some academic question, like the classification of accounts on the balance sheet, calculate the depreciation, or revenue recognition.
    At last they would wondering how you will bring to their company, and what's your plan for future.
    Ending is whether you have any questions.

    Interview Questions

    • During the interview section they will ask academic questions, while people feel nervous on an interview, it is hard for people to focus on those mathematics numbers and calculations.   Answer Question
