    Pros

    Exciting technology. Dynamic market. High level professionals. World leader in AFM. Wide variety of other technologies: film deposition, epitaxy, optical and AFM metrology. Clear business and industry orientation.

    Cons

    Not that many Cons. May be a bit too much politics where it should not be. Sometimes unclear distribution of duties and chain of comand.

    Advice to Management

    I guess a bit more transparency in decision making and less politics will be beneficial for the company.
