    Pros

    Working on cutting edge optical technology is a challenge and a lot of fun. Small company atmosphere makes it easy to learn about many aspects of the business.

    Cons

    Business model is not good. Margins are bad. Competition is intense. Losing market share. Japan-USA tensions are high and cooperation is almost non-existent, if not hostile.

    I don't see this company being one of the winners in the coming optical component consolidation.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to make high-performing employees want to stay.
    Find a way to differentiate the products from the competition.
    Hold sales team accountable for their targets.
    Fix the Japan-USA rift or else close down one of the sites.
    Do you really need an office in NJ?
