    Pros

    401 K matching is good. Wide variety of products, Once you find a connection at another site they tend to be helpful.

    Cons

    Poor compensation, mediocre health plan for a company of its size. Micromanaged from the CEO down. No clear picture as to the direction the company is going in. ESOP and Option Grants are all but unheard of at any level below director.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No brand recognition as Newport,, Spectra-Physics div is the rogue elephant, a shell of what it once was. Management needs to leverage the the whole of Newport and act as one company. The reputation in the field is suffering. Time for some changed in the old boy network across all the divisions.

    I have been working at Newport

    Pros

    At Newport Corp there is room to grow for hard workers who are motivated to advance. Upper management runs the company fairly well.

    Cons

    There is weird division between different facilities. It makes no sense why the CEO allows this to happen. The Irvine facility is in an old building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run the company as 1 business!! Why does lasers get away with doing their own thing? Why do we spend huge money on a single ERP system but can't pull together HR?
