Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

The only thing that is a pro is that the company serves the industry that may not directly tie into mainstream, so does not have an affect on the recent economic downturn.
There is no other pros

Cons

No opportunities for growth. Company is really focus on making upper managment and executives richer. Very low incentives for employees. No cross training and no mentoring environment to encourage growth and promotion

Advice to Management

Need to focus more on fostering growth and mentoring of existing talent pool

    Pros

    Newport is a large corporation which crosses over a number of technologies. For a technical professional is present a good deal of opportunity.

    Cons

    Because Newport has been around for so long and has grown through acquisition it sometimes feels less like a cohesive team.

    Advice to Management

    Some portion of management seems resistant to change which for a growing company in a technical field seems counter intuitive.
