    I worked at Optical Cable full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment - the people make this place bearable.

    Cons

    Too political. Too passive aggressive. Too many egos.

    Advice to Management

    The number of days a person shows up to work should not equate continuous employment. Get rid of dead weight. Get leaders who lead and have ideas of their own.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Manager had never been a purchasing manager and had no clue what questions to ask. I found that insulting. I basically read off my resume to him while he sat and listened.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They don't have negotiations pay is minimal. Company is lobviously acking in management talent. I was required to get a copy of my university degrees which I understood but to not allow me to start till my HS diploma was given showed me yet again a lake in management talent.
