Mission: To Develop & Deliver Photonics Technology and Products
That Extend the Frontiers of Science and Improve Our World
I worked at Newport full-time (More than 10 years)
The close colleagues were always a positive. It was a great experience for the most part. Used to have a very personal, family atmosphere. Great products and a we'll known brand.
Company has been lead for a long time by individuals that lack focus, innovation and leadership skills along with a personality that creates a positive motivational workplace. The company has been acquired by MKSI. There is very little synergy or overlap. MKS doesn't seem to understand Newports original core business.
Advice to Management
Bring back the personal aspect of the company, learn to relate to your employees, be a leader and develop personalities that drive and nurture a positive motivational work environment
The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Newport.
They were very kind and flew me to the HQ in Irvine, CA for the interview. A series of 6 or so people spoke with me for nearly an hour each. They took me to a great lunch and were very generous and polite. It was overall a nice experience with professional employees and well-informed HR representatives.
