Pros

Well known name. Stable industry.Good knowledge base. There are some very good people with good work ethics. The techs are good workers and want to do as much as they can to help out in delivering a product.

Cons

There is no clear path to promotions. The training for all areas is weak. The is little loyalty to the employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be nice if the company would provide more of a quarterly incentive. It is good to get anything in my opinion, but when the company has has the best two years of its entire history, the checks should be larger.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The only thing that is a pro is that the company serves the industry that may not directly tie into mainstream, so does not have an affect on the recent economic downturn.
    There is no other pros

    Cons

    No opportunities for growth. Company is really focus on making upper managment and executives richer. Very low incentives for employees. No cross training and no mentoring environment to encourage growth and promotion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to focus more on fostering growth and mentoring of existing talent pool

    Pros

    Newport is a large corporation which crosses over a number of technologies. For a technical professional is present a good deal of opportunity.

    Cons

    Because Newport has been around for so long and has grown through acquisition it sometimes feels less like a cohesive team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some portion of management seems resistant to change which for a growing company in a technical field seems counter intuitive.
