    I worked at EMCORE (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting Design Work. Employees were a good group of people Direct management pretty capable. Benefits were pretty typical. They did give pretty worthless stock options in stead of bonus.

    Cons

    Company had a furlough and forced pay cut.The equipment was old and it was hard to get modern equipment for testing. No real career growth options

    Advice to Management

    No Real advice beyond try to introduce yourself to the employees more. Walk around, say hi. As them what they're working on. Make a presence beyond the all hands meetings.

    I worked at EMCORE full-time

    Pros

    Management didn't micro-manage, they supported employees to get their job done & work flexible hours. Communication appeared good, meetings to ensure everyone involved was aware. Latest technology was always available to do the job.

    Cons

    Near the end of my employment, management was top heavy & a lot of lower level people were layed off. Culture started to change.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a better method of employees feedback. Earlier in the company that culture was there, and it allowed for good communication.
