Company had so much potential

Purchasing (Current Employee)
Bloomfield, CT

I have been working at Coherent full-time for more than a year

Prosget people to work with
workers were engaged

Consthere 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 Senior Managementyour 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

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

My experience could not be further from the truth. My manager (controller) was not supportive of anyone's… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
