    Pros

    GSI has the opportunity to be very successful. Key technologies in key market, in many cases a leadership position. I don't think there is any down side with this company from now on forward.

    Cons

    Current managements, lack of understanding of the technology and markets. To much internal focus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep executing the plan to "restructure" the organisation. Communicate better what the final structure of the company will look like. Invest in people, focus on customers and employees. If 50% of the time that currently is spend on finance would be spend on employees and customers, this would turn into a "great" comapny

    I worked at GSI Group

    Pros

    Flexible toward work / life balance, great employees, decent teamwork ethic, highly intelligent engineers, okay benefits, convenient location, nice facility

    Cons

    Senior management destroyed this company through an extremely risky, debt-laden acquisition just as the economy started to tank in 2008. Current CEO has destroyed a company that took decades to build. His absentee leadership has driven this company into a ditch and epitomizes all that is wrong with American corporate leadership. As a result, staff is demoralized, mandatory furloughs are common, as well as pay and benefit cuts. Add on top a general decline in US based manufacturing and you have a perfect storm for a zombie, bankrupt company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO please leave. You are not qualified to run this company and have long since lost the confidence of your team. Check out the stock price from about 2004 to now. The market agrees.
