    Small company, open door policy. People are nice and friendly. Many cross training, good benefit, good work environment.

    limited to career growth due to the size of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Good job taking care of the employees.


  2. The company attempted to support its employees despite having to perform a reduction in force each year.

    Pros

    At the time, the company had a great benefits package. Quarterly to annual events to keep moral up

    Cons

    Every year had to perform a reduction in force which gives the impression the company's finances were not doing well as projected.

    Pros

    Good place to gain valueable industry experience. Many in the LCD industry start at Optrex. Excellent benefits, although with the economic downturn some of them have gone away.

    Cons

    The upper management triangle is so set in stone that there is no room for innovative ideas. If you are in the "in" crowd, everything will be just fine.

    Advice to Management

    Make more business decisions based on business metrics and not personal opinions.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, growth from within albeit somewhat limited based on the size of Optrex.

    Cons

    Very competitive industry, parent company is investment company not looking to grow in the LCD business, possibly wanting to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Great turnaround over the previous management 5-6 years ago. Keep listening to your people and be willing to change when necessary. Its been a pleasure being here and you have created a very good team atmosphere.
