    Pros

    They were great in the early days. Lots of golden handcuffs in the form of stock options. They were all cut out and then in came the Applied folks. Went down hill through the Pascal days.

    Cons

    Now they are just another semi place with way to many mid and upper management.
    They need to be spoon feed information instead of getting in there and working the issues. Spent more time doing weekly reports than working. They do not implement the best designs, only the ones that barely meet spec and change as little as possible. Their lasers could be much better if they wanted to do the engineering and let the engineers do the work. They waste a lot of material.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, hire the best and get out of the way. Leave them to do the job and you go around to feed the info upstairs.
