    I worked at CoorsTek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Strong leadership. Excellent training opportunities. Great benefits, including a good company match 401k. Decent advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    The leadership was lack luster in a few departments, that contributed to a lot of unnecessary "emergency's". At times the fall in line or else mentality overshadowed larger problems, by trying to force erratic and unnecessary rule changes.

    Advice to Management

    My biggest suggestion would be for senior management to look at the departments that are running more efficiently and smoothly then others, and realize and take to heart the fact that it's the direct supervisors and how they implement their culture and treat their employees.

    I worked at CoorsTek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonable amount of flexibility. Plenty of overtime. Fair Benefits.

    Cons

    Forced overtime. Mediocre pay for skilled help. Poor organization and disheartening ability of entire plant to meet customer orders on time. Overtime is chronic and expected. Training is minimal. Indoor climate is chronically hot due to two enormous kilns inside the building. Poor ventilation. Messy.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the shop temperature. Hire only skilled employees and quit putting people with no formal training or industry knowledge in positions of authority.

    I have been working at CoorsTek full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The new strategy and direction the Company is going = opportunity, rewards, recognition, support, fairness, and most of all great people to work with etc.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is getting better however work still needs to be done in this area

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the new path - lots of great people have been hired and those that should have left a long time ago are finally leaving. Listen to the concerns expressed by the employees and to the new C-level leadership team. Please do not let this be the next great initiative that is abandoned in a year or so.

    Pros

    I can*t think of any.

    Cons

    The pay rate is low, very little training. It is like working at a daycare. They make impossible goals to reach. HR is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    There is more to your employees,then just numbers. You should not make unreachable goals.

    I have been working at CoorsTek full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    401k option is pretty good. Vacation time for employees that have been there for a while. There is a lot of good people working at Coorstek.

    Cons

    There is no promotion for current employees. They consistently hire new employees instead of giving current ones a good career path to advance. Most of the time the new employees are paid more than longtime employees and more often than not the new hires can't handle the job or the environment. The new benefit package is horribly expensive if you actually go to the doctor. I could go on and on.....way too many cons.

    Advice to Management

    Look within your current employees. You could be missing something great right before your eyes.
