    I worked at Nanometrics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Environment could be laid back at some of the time. There's a lot of ownership given even to individual contributor.

    Cons

    There was no warning at all about my layoff. I think the management need to be more transparent to their employees and talk to them instead of playing office politics. Hard to get a raise or advancement seems like, creativity is upper bounded by management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent to employees. Do more 1 on 1 meeting from manager to employee so that both sides could know what's going on, at least 1-2x a week.

    small company feel, lots of room for improvement

    senior management stuck in their ways, COO ran the ship and he was not right most of the time but had a strong following from those who he treated well or were afraid of him

    I have been working at Nanometrics (More than a year)

    Pros

    None that are worth the time to mention. Some good people but company does not recognize them.

    Cons

    Executive staff is clueless. Very poor supply chain management and Customer deliveries are rarely on time. The leadership is poor and direction or initiatives are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Change the executive team.

    I have been working at Nanometrics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are none that I can think

    Cons

    The company consistently misses customer requirement, deadlines and for a small company very political. With the exception of the CEO there has been a complete management change and it is a very dysfunctional

    If you have any other options go somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together
