I have been working at EMCORE full-time for less than a year

Pros

Some very good people who are working very hard to keep the place afloat. These people are worth way more than they are getting.

Cons

No interest in fixing things the right way.....just slap it back together and keep the wafers moving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you intend to keep the manufacturing in the states (questionable) then you will need to modernize some of your equipment.

    I worked at EMCORE

    Pros

    Laid back work environment. Good work/life balance. There was a solid foundation at least from a resource standpoint after the divestiture from Intel.

    Cons

    Clear lack of direction from senior management. Their acquisition of Intel's Optical Platform Division was followed by sugar coated kool aid speeches of how the employees are the most important asset. Six months later there was a mass layoff because of The Great Recession. Those who were left were given promotions even though they were not the best candidates to fill in the void. To say that title inflation runs amok at that place is an understatement. My very job was posted on the company's website a year ago, and I was not even given time of day after applying again. Wow, so you didn't even consider calling back those you laid off? Quality costs, but it looks like you don't want to put your money where your mouth is after reading the other reviews by current and former employees.

    I cringe thinking what has become of all the top shelf test and capital equipment that is languishing in a shelf or storage area. I'd love to use a fraction of it in my current job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know who replaced the senior management that left during the great purge, but they seem to be no better. You failed to retain the best and the brightest and it shows in your standing in the fiber optics space
