I have been working at Veeco Instruments

Pros

Salary is average with the industry
Benefits are above average
Profit sharing is ok
Human Resources department tries to create a family type atmosphere

Cons

Training is inconsistent and almost non-existent
A majority of the customers are ex-Veeco employees so for an FSE the working environment is very difficult because most of the customers have more system knowledge than the Veeco employees.
Many times the Veeco employee is set up to fail by not having the needed system training and interfacing with a majority of customers who are ex-Veeco employees with a lot of system knowledge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide better training for your employees. Even though resources are limited, by not providing a strong base of knowledge for your people, you are essentially setting them up for failure.
