Pros

get people to work with
workers were engaged

Cons

there was no leadership
management was not engaged in creating a positive place to work
management was not concerned about the workers just their reporting into headquarters

Advice to ManagementAdvice

your roles may be stepping stones in your careers but to the average worker these are their lives please be more responsible for the choices you make and understand the long term results to them

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    The 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.
