Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at EMCORE full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Some very good people who are working very hard to keep the place afloat. These people are worth way more than they are getting.

Cons

No interest in fixing things the right way.....just slap it back together and keep the wafers moving.

Advice to Management

If you intend to keep the manufacturing in the states (questionable) then you will need to modernize some of your equipment.

    Pros

    Very bright engineers who enjoy the technology

    Cons

    Extraordinarily cheap company which refuses to spend money on even the basics (office supplies, lab supplies, laptops, wireless that works); currently offers salaries below market value because of the bad economy; has very poor benefits (thank God for my wife's benefits!); many people seem bitter at the company culture of "do twice as much with half the support"

    Advice to Management

    Update from Lotus Notes, for God's sake! It has the worst GUI ever. That will save us many hours per week of extra work.

    Spend a little money to keep your employees happy; give them the tools they need to do their jobs. Otherwise, as the economy gets better, there will be a huge exodus.
