    Working at Nikon Precision is a good job but a terrible career.

    I worked at Nikon Precision full-time

    Pros

    - Relatively relaxed
    - Diverse and fun coworkers
    - Pay is okay
    - Non strict dress code
    - Benefits are competitive
    - Compressed shifts allow for 3 and 4 day weekends

    Cons

    - Annual raises are a joke
    - Almost no room for advancement
    - No real career path
    - Long hours in a clean room environment
    - Very little recognition
    - Management doesn't have a clue what's really going on in the fab
    - Big mistakes have lead to micromanaging
    - Compressed shifts are long and dreaded

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a structure that tracks and rewards employees good work. Right now there is little way to distinguish between somebody who works all day in the fab and somebody who just sits in the cubicles all day and marks their hours however they want.

    I have been working at Nikon Precision full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is fair at best. Work itself is not physically intensive.. clean working environment! Working shift is nice, long weekends. Medical insurance is good, dental is standard.

    Cons

    Pay raises are terrible, if you want a salary increase...work more hours. Lucky if you get cost of living raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay raises for effort and contribution not just seniority. Maybe management should actually see what work is being done by who, to see who carries the shifts.

    I worked at Nikon Precision full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working in high-tech is exciting. The scanners NPI sells and services are some of the most technologically dense spaces on earth. The job is a constant challenge.

    Cons

    The semiconductor industry is full of highs and lows. The sense of foreboding, from time to time, that ones' job was at risk was like a spectre.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had great bosses. I thought everyone I worked for did a great job. My advice, keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at Nikon Precision full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits package is great, very good medical insurance and no waiting times to be vested into any of the benefits.

    Cons

    Management, training and pay. The managers give favors to the worker that are their friends outside of work, and cover up the mistakes they make. There is a total lack of training, than later on they expect you to know everything about the training a elite few received. And lastly pay could be better, for the economy it is good. But compared to the industry it is low.
