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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Low turnover rate. That is if you're lucky to survive the layoffs.
    Improved 401k plan services. In the past you could only make changes twice per year through the payroll dept. Now the employee has more control over contributions & plans.

    Cons

    Highly political environment. Too many layers of management.
    Even after 2 years of merging with Accent, it still seems like 2 different companies under one building.
    Little opportunity for advancement.
    Low morale due to layoffs.
    Funky 3rd party medical plan administration company that most medical, dental places you visit look at you funny when you give them the plan card.

    Advice to Management

    How about no bonuses for Management when it's been decreed no raises for the employees.
