Pros

Very good company with excellent people. Advancement achievable with good performance. Very community oriented with local activities and projects. I would return given the opportunity.

Cons

Very little cons with Coorstek, if I had to pick any are that a few bad apples in management position "Power Corrupts" kind of thing.

Advice to Management

Some mid-level managers tend to be to controlling and take credit for others accomplishments and not allowing people to progress and achieve their maximum potential.

    Pros

    The work could be interesting at times. Given the lack of depth within the company, it was easy to be a "shining star". Management also had a tendency to focus on themselves and generally left the rank and file employees alone. The location was beautiful, its Golden Colorado.

    It was kinda nice when you accrued vacation time. You could either roll it over to the next year or cash it in. Nice perk when you sacrificed vacation time for getting production out the door. That disappeared in another "cost cutting" measure though.

    Given the economic melt down, having a job was the biggest reason for staying. The fact that CoorsTek cut their staffing to the bone made everyone left essential.

    Cons

    The focus of the company is making money for the Coors family. Period, end of discussion. The direction of the company seems to vacillate back and forth, losing and then gaining focus. The pay is decent, in line with local averages. The medical leaves a lot to be desired, basically catastrophic high deductible. No pension, good match on 401........when they didn't yank it to save money.

    I've worked for about 10 companies in the past thirty years. Coorstek probably ranks in the lower half. With the economy strengthening came the opportunity to get the hell out of dodge. I got a new job with a 20% salary bump. I gave 2 weeks notice and was promptly escorted off the premises. So much for respecting the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Quit making it so obvious that we're working simply to make money for the family.

    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.
