    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.

    Pros

    Dynamic environment.
    Get to move from project to project often and learn new things.
    Get to work with people from multiple departments, easy to see "the large picture".
    Decent amount of independence. Can take on and handle projects as I see fit.
    Decent health plan.

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted or get a raise.
    Gaining visibility at the lower levels is difficult.
    Besides health plan, no real perks for employees. No food provided, no transportation deals provided.

    Advice to Management

    Nanometrics is more of a "place to work". Not a place to have a career. Need to focus on bringing the people at the bottom up, and maintaining competitive wages, benefits, and perks.
