Not a bad place if you're experienced

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at II-VI

Prosgood base pay and bonuses
culture is not bad, fairly supportive of employees
coworkers are generally competent and willing to help

Conslong work hours
not enough professional attention, although training program is sufficient compared to peers
work can get kind of tedious

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove access to senior management. Cut down on hours and vary the workload a bit (maybe try rotational stations or something along those lines?)

short sighted and controlling

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at II-VI full-time

Prosflat structure is good, there is plenty of opportunity to take on more and more responsibility, just don't expect anything for it.

Consit is a good old boy network, the longer your are there the higher you can go regardless if the position is deserved or not. Layers and layers of approval for such a flat structure.
Management wrote the book on micromanaging.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange, move into the 21st century

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
