This company is in big trouble

Senior Engineering Manager (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsWorking 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.

ConsBusiness 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.

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.
