Employees are about equally valued as assets and liabilities at REO.

Engineer (Former Employee)
Boulder, CO

I worked at Research Electro-Optics full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood work-life balance; most supervisors here set the productivity bar high without imposing excess pressure. Relatively easy work to transition into if you are technically minded and don't have previous optics-specific experience.

ConsThe overall culture here is somewhat institutionalized and has difficulty keeping pace with industry developments. Management's answer to every business challenge usually begins with a layoff (a minimum of 2 per year in my 5+ years with the company). Other types of attrition are high as well. Extremely limited opportunities and little attention to advancement or career growth.

Advice to Senior ManagementShare the fruits of success with all employees, not only the pains of failure. Recognize exceptional individual contributions, cooperation and teamwork. CEO needs to behave more respectfully towards employees.

OK job, but the short-term focus and disfunctions make it a difficult place to build a meaningful long-term career.
