    Former Employee - Contingency Contract Recruiter (Remote) in Belmont, CA

    I worked at Nikon Precision for more than 19 years

    Pros

    I had easy access to the management that was hiring and was able to work with them in defining the exact qualifications they required the right candidate to have. It made my job so much easier!

    Cons

    Although I worked remotely - I did like to have face to face meetings with the staff. It was difficult to schedule due to their frequent overseas travel.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Nikon Precision full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company almost if it can be too loyal to everyone- you work hard but when you need help they're always there. time off/ pay/ vacation/ mental health/ stress. Best job Ive ever had.

    Cons

    upper mobility is limited due to size of company- tend to stay in area for long periods- opportunity is there but sometimes it can take years to develop. - very high retention rate of employees

    Advice to Management

    keep the top performers happy by offering some job variability- managers go technical, tech folks try to manage for a while. Everyone should do 1 week of work on the floor level to keep it in perspective.

    I have been working at Nikon Precision full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Good team chemistry. Everyone is helpful, and the skill sets of team members complement each other well -Very Competitive Pay (at least starting out), good health, life and 401k benefits -Good hours (9-5 most days, seldom have to work at home) -Good job security. Lithography tools are complex and take many months to even begin to work on. Thus the company tries to keep turnover low in an effort to not spend too much...

    Cons

    -Most upper management positions are held by Japanese, and they like to promote other Japanese people into those roles. Very hard to get promoted from this role; most people in this job stay in it for their entire career at the company -Like promotions, raises are not great. They barely keep up with inflation. -While the company is a great place to start a career and maintain a steady job for a while, this stagnation...

    Pros

    Enjoyed the travel, not doing the same thing day in day out. Servicing, installing, maintaining the photolithography equipment was very rewarding.

    Cons

    Industry is prone to the "silicon cycle" of employment.

    I have been working at Nikon Precision full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great medical benefits with low copay. 401K with 3 percent match. Opportunities for travel within certain groups.

    Cons

    Upward movement within the company is almost non-existent. Every move that comes up seems to be a lateral move with no pay bump. Not fully vested in 401K right away. Promotions are more a title change than a raise.

    Advice to Management

    When an individual is good enough to promote then they should also be compensated equally not compensated with the cheapest minimal raise you think that you can get away with.
