Dehumanizing

Laser Technician (Current Employee)

I have been working at Coherent

ProsMoney money money money money

ConsYou surrender your dignity when you go to work at Coherent-you become nothing but a number to them, and they constantly monitor productivity. They keep Temps on for years without benefits before hiring or releasing them. People on swing shift are required to report to work for overtime on Saturdays at 5:00 a.m. after finishing their shift at 10:30 p.m. the night before. Vietnamese workers are not allowed to join the company gym. I could go on and on

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
