Pros

Zygo hires excellent technical people and has challenging products / projects to work on. There is good esprit de corp among the technical staff to get problems solved and help out co-workers. If you are interested in engineering challenges, this is a very good place to work.

Zygo is a medium to small sized company but sometimes it is managed as if it were a very large company.

Advice to Management

Take a longer term view on how to run the company.
