    You are better off flipping burger than working here!!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNone other than having a job. If you survive you will be doing the same thing every day till you move out. No career growth whatsoever

    ConsYou will be treated as a slave, used and discarded. Few old timers say it all. You have 0 chance of making any decision good or bad. If you try anything innovative, then you can kiss your career a sweet goodbye. If you suck up to old timers and nod your head yo everything then maybe you will survive

    Advice to Senior ManagementLike others have said in their review treat employees as humans and keep things professional

    Horrible work place, (most) people are incompetent, worst culture ever

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOther than having a job? None. And, that is a job that would take a toll on your mental health.

    ConsCompany has been around for a long time. It is definitely a case study for "What is wrong with the company's culture?" Everything. People who work there either have been there for a long time (10+years) or joined recently. Well qualified people wouldn't stay long because those "long time veteran" don't know what they are doing and make it worse everyday. Anything you do to try to improve makes you the enemy. Some of the previous reviews are totally correct. People work under the threat of being fired. Career growth? what is that? Do yourself a favor and stay away from this company. If there is someone you hate, help them a job at this place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire those that are not qualified regardless of how long they have been with the company. Then, let's talk about improvement and business strategy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Senior management sucks, workers are great

    Engineer (Former Employee) Milpitas, CA

    ProsGood products, smart people work there.

    ConsCOO is a bully. Go along keep your head down don't question anything,you are fine. Have a difference of opinion, your dead. You will be publicly humiliated and the CEO can't make a move or decision without the COO approving it. Very weak management. It is run like a prison camp.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTime to retire. Let somebody else run it who isn't just looking to sell us off to the highest bidder and who actually cares about human beings and how hard they work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Well protected and consistent work, but not much opportunity for promotion or advancement

    Applications Engineer (Current Employee) Milpitas, CA

    ProsDynamic 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.

    ConsHard 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 Senior ManagementNanometrics 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.
