    Industrial leader in many advanced technologies.

    20% of the employees accomplish 80% of the work.
    Divisions do not easily share resources due to conflict of interests.
    Very little room for career advancement.
    Below market average in terms of compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many mid-level managers. Set long term goals instead of focusing on short term profit.

    It was outside of my field of Optics and wasn't given much freedom to branch out.

    Former Employee - Senior Manufacturing Engineer in Irvine, CA

    Pros

    Well known name. Stable industry.Good knowledge base. There are some very good people with good work ethics. The techs are good workers and want to do as much as they can to help out in delivering a product.

    Cons

    There is no clear path to promotions. The training for all areas is weak. The is little loyalty to the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if the company would provide more of a quarterly incentive. It is good to get anything in my opinion, but when the company has has the best two years of its entire history, the checks should be larger.

    No opinion of CEO
