Pros

Worked for Coherent for > 20 years and have seen many changes. Coherent has a lot of great people and the work environment is not bad. Salary is competitive, and had opportunity to advance.

Cons

Management is not in contact with employees and benefits have been reduced to save the bottom line. Unless you are senior manager there are no options or bonuses. People with more than 15 years have a target on their backs and in line for the next round of lay offs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Time to move forward and get new senior management. In this case, change would be a good thing.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Have stock options, health benefits and a nice cafeteria.

    Cons

    I worked here for over 20 years. It used to be a great place to work. The founding president cared about his employees and treated them well. The latest president doesn't care about anything or anybody but money and is constantly taking away benefits. The new motto is: "you should be greatful you have a job".
