One controller/manager to avoid

Financial Analyst Staff (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

ProsThe best reasons to work at Coherent include: (1) well-defined ERP systems and corporate controls; (2) supporting groups that are excited and motivated about the work they do; and (3) leader in the laser technology industry.

ConsThe company promotes balance in its work/life perspective. My experience could not be further from the truth. My manager (controller) was not supportive of anyone's work/life balance save for her own. She described any conflicts between weekend plans and work that she allowed to spill over to the weekend as "personal problems". I was only to pleased to terminate my employment quickly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
