Super cheap company with good technology

Engineer (Current Employee)
Newark, CA

I have been working at EMCORE

ProsVery bright engineers who enjoy the technology

ConsExtraordinarily cheap company which refuses to spend money on even the basics (office supplies, lab supplies, laptops, wireless that works); currently offers salaries below market value because of the bad economy; has very poor benefits (thank God for my wife's benefits!); many people seem bitter at the company culture of "do twice as much with half the support"

Advice to Senior ManagementUpdate from Lotus Notes, for God's sake! It has the worst GUI ever. That will save us many hours per week of extra work.

Spend a little money to keep your employees happy; give them the tools they need to do their jobs. Otherwise, as the economy gets better, there will be a huge exodus.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
