    Pros

    They have their own credit union, own medical plaza with doctors, and really concentrate on their employees. Family oriented business in a large corporate setting.

    Cons

    Very fast paced work that leaves you a bit stressed overall if you fall behind. But with any production or distribution company, you can expect the same.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on putting the employees first and making them feel like a key role in the company. They will in turn keep working hard for you.

    Pros

    The pay was good. The production group goes beyond the average skill set and understanding.

    Cons

    The Management team was unfamiliar with customer requirements, dollar driven, more than quality requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Should define importance of quality in they're product and schedule more realistically to meet customer needs. Give opportunities for advancement to the more senior employees and give woman more opportunity for advancement..

    Pros

    Past history as a leader in the field of ceramics. Some remnants of this exist in a few select employees.

    Cons

    Not forward looking. Internally funded R&D almost nonexistent. Major corporate emphasis is returning cash to the family trust fund. Company has lost its leadership role. Majority of growth and new products comes from acquisitions rather than internal Groth and R&D. Customers have a negative image of CoorsTek.

    Advice to Management

    Change corporate strategy to support long term viability of the enterprise.

    Pros

    Work in a beautiful office with really smart people. Contribute to development of life changing products. Position had a nice variety of duties.

    Cons

    After IMDS was purchased by CoorsTek medical all the focus moved to manufacturing and the development department was ignored and cut drastically. Local office culture was good.

    Advice to Management

    Company is currently headed by managers and not leaders. You can only beat people up about metrics for so long, yes you may be making the numbers look good for the short term; however, without leadership you will not grow and thrive.

    Pros

    They'll hire you if you don't mind making minimal pay for unhealthy and overly-extraneous effort.

    Cons

    I consider it an unsafe environment with constant noise pollution, very bad odors, old equipment, cheap solutions to problem-solving, that relies on desperate people needing jobs. Most workers there smoke cigarettes, and too close to the Building. They were named something else before, have been bought out at least 3 times before, and almost went out of business and now they're relentless in their drive to secure longevity as part of Coorstek.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and realize that you need to actually take care of your employees and not drive them down hard all the time. Obvious solutions would be to pay better and hire more employees.

    Pros

    Coorstek operates in a team-oriented environment, provides opportunities to excel for all employees, and promotes within the organization. The company had really great benefits, and the pay during my employment with Coorstek was higher than most organizations.

    Cons

    I do not really feel a need to express any cons with my employment at Coorstek. During my employment at Coorstek, I found the benefits of the company to be better than most other organizations in the Denver metro area, but my con is that it has been a number of years since I had left Coorstek and I do not know what the current benefit packages offer.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management teams at Coorstek, is to promote and hire supervisors within the organization that treat all employees with respect and consistency. A good management style can ensure employee satisfaction which then results in higher customer satisfaction.

    Pros

    Quick and easy hiring process.

    Cons

    Long hours, fast-paced and physically demanding, workers laid off with seasonally changing demand for product output, catty work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and their well-being more and they'll be more effective workers; cutting out a 15 minute break and cutting quarterly bonuses is a poor motivator.

    Pros

    Worked with some great people at all levels from production to management

    Cons

    Executive management rules with blinders on making decisions that will get them bonuses with little regard to those that actually do the work. Depending on location you may be required to perform cleaning duties, no matter your position, because apparently that saves money.

    Be prepared for your personal integrity and ethics to be compromised.

    Advice to Management

    If you wish to succeed major changes are needed. I cannot help any further.

    Pros

    Many sharp coworkers and an executive staff that were great to serve.

    Cons

    I experienced the nastiest sycophant I would never have imagined ever reporting to. I quickly found another position.

    Advice to Management

    I witnessed a closed-door environment hiding unprofessional behavior by someone placed in a supervisory role who had no business managing human beings. More disturbing were the excuses being made (gender & years with the company) for their behavior.
