    Former Employee - OEM Test and Development Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

    I worked at Nova Measuring full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent pay, good recognition of performance, and a "hat rack" position. The perks that I received for accomplishing very difficult tasks included items like additional paid weeks off and vacations for my entire family.

    Cons

    60 to 70 hours per week on average salary exempt. Some of the daily expectations were excessive (i.e. required to handle all first line applications solutions without any prior experience or training, manage all product testing methodologies for escalated issues worldwide, perform initial debugging of software issues world wide, and maintain all local account hardware in a field service capacity). This was why the hours per week were so high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't use "work / life balance" as a catch phrase but genuinely try to give your employees time with their families. Even the service technicians were required to work an insane number of hours every week.

    Pros

    Easy work, good people, generous company, flexible hours, working remote, independent direction, internal support from the other US based FSE was outstanding, support from Israel was good but delayed from time zones.

    Cons

    Their VPN intranet was painful if you needed to download documentation. Being a smaller based company you were forced to resolve your own issues, sometimes to the disgruntlement of the customer. Too many tasks left incomplete because a new priority has arrived.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what people have done for you and don't hope that a face will win contracts.

    I worked at Nova Measuring full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people - feels like family. Opportunity to learn new things. Good HR. Even a small voice will be heard, "no distance" with the direct management.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is not that good. Stressful work periods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Software versions must be planned more carefully - it often feels like "put out fires".

    Pros

    The company supplies the semiconductor fabs with optical metrology equipment, and thus is appealing to guys from physics, materials, microelectronics, and chemistry department. You can also enjoy a good work-life balance here.

    Cons

    The product of the company is monotonous, not diverse. Maybe it will suffer the difficulty in the future.
