    Former Employee - Anonymous in Fremont, CA

    I worked at Optoma Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Good learning opportunity about sales and how a production company works if you are a recent grad.
    -1/3 of the employees are very nice, smart, fun, supportive, and competent.
    -full benefits (medical, vision, dental, 401k) on start date,

    Cons

    -extremely low pay. They want to work you as hard as they could for low pay.
    -no room to grow at all. They frown upon internal transfers.
    -majority of the staff are highly incompetent and lazy. They have been there for over 5+ years and still don't know what the heck they are doing.
    -management takes credit for your work and blame you for all the mistakes (like most companies).
    -low employee morale. Company seems to only care about numbers and not about how unhappy and overworked their employees are.
    -consistently understaff. "Budget cuts" prevent them from hiring more or good people.
    -staff award/appreciation only goes to management and upper management. If you are a support staff (engineers, tech support, admin, analyst,etc) you will never be rewarded for your hard work. The $1000 will always be rewarded to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Re-evaluate the staff and let go of the incompetent people whom you had held on for so long and appreciate the staff who works so hard for you everyday.
    -Provide more competitive salary.
    -allow professional growth, internal transfer, and promotion.
    -show company/employee morale. Show a little appreciation even if the company budget is low. Bring back the holiday parties and staff appreciation.
    -give awards away to actual support staff and not managers.
