    I have been working at II-VI full-time

    Pros

    - Stable, bookings tend to consistently increase
    - Committed to developing new products and applications
    - Generally good customer focus. Quality is more than a buzzword.
    - Decent bonus plan

    Cons

    - When the bonus gets to be too good for the employees, the plan changes to their detriment.
    - An awful lot of high-level management and executives for a company this size. It is hard to figure out what some of these folks actually do.
    - A ton of overhead and admin keeps costs high, slows everything down. This problem has only been getting worse.
    - Perception is greatly valued over reality.
    - Poorly performing, volatile stock.
    - Low base pay for the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Slim down your ranks! Reduce the overhead and admin to a more reasonable level.
    - Increase the base pay. Take a bit from the top and give it to the bottom and the middle.
    - The management needs to be more realistic and less concerned about presenting a good image to those above them.
