    A great company with lots of potentials, but lacks good management to thrive

    (Current Employee)

    ProsIndustrial leader in many advanced technologies.
    Lots of experts with many years of experience that are willing to teach.
    Relax working atmospheres on most days. Good balance between work and personal life.
    Competitive 401K matching.

    Cons20% 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 Senior ManagementToo many mid-level managers. Set long term goals instead of focusing on short term profit.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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

    Senior Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

    ProsWell 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt 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.
