It was a good, somewhat boring part-time job.

Process Technician (Former Employee)
Champaign, IL

I worked at Finisar

ProsI got a good pay for the type of work I was doing. The hours were very flexible and the people pretty friendly.

ConsPeople in the office were usually pretty busy and there was not much time for interaction. I wish I would have found out earlier that would not need me any more.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe leadership was pretty good. The head engineer in my office was friendly. I got to meet only one person from higher management, so I can't really comment much about it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
