    Pros

    Newport products are critical part of research and high tech equipment advances in Microelectronics, Defense, Astronomy, and Life and Health Sciences. Competitive pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    Very fragmented company structure. Management makes decisions based on what will help them achieve their near term objectives for their department/division, not based on what is in the best interest of the customers, employees or long term interest of the share holders and company at large. Little, to no, accountability for failure to meet commitments. There are some very dedicated employees that carry the weight and step in and perform the tasks of others, but even they cannot compensate for the poor day to day management and lack of effort to improve systems, efficiencies, processes and service.

    Advice to Management

    Look at solving systemic issues. So many resources are involved in reactive "firefighting" that nobody can or will take the time to investigate, identify the root cause, and put the issus to rest, especially because it involves so many different divisions that do not cooperate well.
