A good company to work for. You must be a team player and fit the culture of the company.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Barrington, NJ

I worked at Edmund Optics full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat people to work with.

ConsIf you do not fit the culture you will not make it long.

Advice to Senior ManagementEven though the company has grown, they need to try and keep the small company atmosphere.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Not much positive to say

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Barrington, NJ

I have been working at Edmund Optics full-time for more than 8 years

ProsMost of the people I work with are very professional and take pride in doing a good job.

ConsNepotism at it's worst. Edmund relatives hold positions they are completely unqualified for.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry playing less dodge ball and other pointless games with your employees to build up morale. Instead promote employees based on merit, rather than who you know or are related too.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It was great then the rug was pulled from under employees

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Edmund Optics full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people who worked at the company we're probably the most friendliest people to work with.

ConsThe company is run like an old boys club. People who know the business of the company keep the business to themselves. When times are not great the people in the know really do not inform their employees that the company really isn't doing well.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be more transparent with the employees. One moment the company was claiming "We made the most money we've ever made" then a few months later "we have to lay people off because we aren't making that much money"

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Edmund Optics is a company that allows your interests and aptitude dictate your career path.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Edmund Optics

ProsEdmund Optics has the feel of a small, privately held, family business yet it has all of the advantages of a global footprint (manufacturing, distribution, and sales).

ConsThere is a fine line between being nimble and responsive to the customer/market and chaos. Sometimes it feels like decisions are made on a whim.

Advice to Senior ManagementShort and long term goals should be made visible to all employees and communicated in a way that everyone can understand. Business performance metrics should be publicly visible and up to date.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
