Good company, great products, great first-line management
Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  New YorkNovember 1, 2017
Veeco has been around for a number of years and makes some outstanding products. First-line management (supervisors, GMs) are great, but upper management doesn't provide the level of support to critical employees that I would prefer.

it was a good company
Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Fort Collins, COOctober 25, 2017
I liked what I did there, and in most regards I was treated fairly. At the time I left I was just ready to venture out and do something else. That something else ended up being a mistake but that's life.

Company has changed
Director of Sales, Americas (Former Employee) –  Plainview, NYOctober 11, 2017
Veeco has changed significantly since I worked there. They sold off the group that I worked for and hired a new CEO, so I am really no longer qualified to discuss the culture or work environment.

Dying Company
Contract Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Plainview, NYApril 16, 2017
This is the epiphany of what a dying company looks like. It may have, at one point in time been a great place to work, but they're afraid to innovate, they push new talent to the back burner, and point fingers like its their job.

Final Test Technician (Former Employee) –  Somerset, NJAugust 30, 2016
is a good, professional organization that treats their employees fairly.

As a large company there are many opportunities to further your career.

On the downside,the company is large and therefore it takes a long time to make decisions than in a small company.

Small team with open door policy
Director, Internal Audit Group (Current Employee) –  Plainview, NYJuly 6, 2016
Veeco is a relatively small public company with products which are very sophisticated catering to the semi-conductor and data storage industry.

I had the opportunity to bring the internal audit department in-house and build up processes and team to deliver the annual audit plan.

I performed risk assessments and presentations for the audit committee. Access to senior management and key stakeholders was easy and we got the opportunity to present at all senior levels including CFO, CEO and audit committee.

Big workload, but good compensation
Senior Accountant & Analyst (Current Employee) –  Horsham, PAFebruary 9, 2016
The Finance department takes on a significant number of duties. The company does compensate well.

Typical workday is significantly busy from the beginning to end. I am the key contact for Corporate as well as for all of the departments within the business unit. I've been exposed to many things working at Veeco. M&A, Revenue recognition, cost accounting, audits, forecasting/budgeting, etc. Management is typically well qualified and fair.
Pros
Good Manamgent
Cons
Big workloads

Sr. Global Supplier Quality Manager (Current Employee) –  Somerset, NJJanuary 5, 2016
The typical day is to develop strategies to mitigate risk for business. I learned new technology, established supplier quality management system from scratch. Hard part of this job was to execute new system in new environment. Enjoy the challenges and drive solutions for efficiency and meet market need in fast pace. Veeco has different business model and quality management system than my past experience in medical device and Automotive industry. I am responsible for driving improvement and developing new Suppliers in Global Market.
