Disapproves of CEO

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.

    I have been working at Nanometrics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good products that were developed in the past.
    They have a bonus program.

    Cons

    Management is NOT inspiring.
    No new technologies and long term thinking. Just the immediate cash is their consideration.
