    I worked at Gentex Optics as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Job was close to home

    Cons

    Low pay, employee favoritism, lack of employee compassion

    I was hired as a temp, most employees company hired. Many full time employees treated other temps with disrespect due to be a temp and were in fear that their job was in jeopardy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat all employees with fairly with no favoritism.

    I have been working at Gentex Optics

    Pros

    Good 401K and the company has great stock options since the stock never goes down.

    Co-workers are nice and people generally get along.

    Relaxed work without too much stress and freedom to work without much interuption.

    Cons

    To complete a project you are told just do it, then told you can't do it "that way".

    Top management will refuse raises even when profits are above expectations

    Management is afraid to let of go dead weight employees who hold the group back

    Very negative, most of the decision makers feel if it was done once years ago it can never be done even with advancements in technology.

    Upper management wants to be involved in big projects but no one wants to take responsibility on decision making making it difficult to have a clear message as to what direction projects are going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision and stick with it. Management refuses to take responsibility for difficult situations. Stop making unrealistic goals for corporate advancement it is only demotivating the engineers since they are the ones who suffer.
