    I worked at Veeco Instruments

    Pros

    I was at Veeco for 5 years and had a terrific experience -- people very cooperative and team oriented - senior management and leaders work hard and reward performance - fast paced technology space where new ideas thrived -- strong culture of execution

    Cons

    not enough time or money spent on communications - global company with many cultures to manage and connect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    push more communications support for strong alignment to match the great work ethic and cooperative spirit

    I have been working at Veeco Instruments full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Veeco has strong, best-in-class technology in all areas of their five business units and a strong team culture. Because of their market leadership and strong balance sheet they are followed by more investment analysts than other companies their size, which speaks volumes about future growth. I'm a seasoned professional that likes collaboration and flat organizations - Veeco is the one for me.

    Cons

    Veeco is spread out with sometimes too lean teams, requiring more coordination and outsourcing dependency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to provide resources to employees and finance new ideas to grow like you have done in the past

    I have been working at Veeco Instruments full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting technology. Dynamic market. High level professionals. World leader in AFM. Wide variety of other technologies: film deposition, epitaxy, optical and AFM metrology. Clear business and industry orientation.

    Cons

    Not that many Cons. May be a bit too much politics where it should not be. Sometimes unclear distribution of duties and chain of comand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I guess a bit more transparency in decision making and less politics will be beneficial for the company.

    Pros

    Great group of individuals to work with. Challenging work and always supported to learn new skills. Feel welcomed and great atmosphere for team driven work.

    Cons

    Hard to find opportunities to advance in the company without PHD. Feels like lots of management for an equivalent number of workers at times.
