Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good location with the good employees well being facilities, e.g. Health care room and gym. Some of the team members are good, but mostly are just work with no words due to a very micro manage leadership.

Cons

The senior management especially at Malaysia only take care of their own cronies. The turnover rate for engineers/managers/senior managers are high. Each of the new hire managers are bonded two years. Usually manager will leave once reach two years. The promotion of the managers also base on Cronyism. The senior management will be willing to rehire managers that has very poor leadership skills or performance traits and willing to let go the performance managers.

Advice to Management

Learn the true meaning and value of these three words: honesty, integrity and be humber.
These are not the dictionary meaning, and not to use as devicive tools, but as a way of being.

    I worked at Finisar full-time

    Pros

    The engineering talent is outstanding. Very well versed in development of optical components

    Cons

    Annual compensation resembles a "union" mentality, everyone gets the same raise no matter job performance. Oxygen robbers who sit in cube and sleep are rewarded the same as the engineers doing all the heavy lifting

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to use a system of meritocracy and reward your top performers
