    I worked at Newport as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are kind and the conversations are always insightful.
    Your workplace is a community.
    The engineering contracts are engaging and relevant, and there was room to explore interests.
    Management was understanding and prompt in offering feedback and facilitating progress with projects.

    Cons

    The company used somewhat outdated/slow infrastructure in tracking and maintaining records. Last I heard though, this was being phased out.

    Pros

    Good conditions, good managment, I love to worked hear, I enjoy my co- workers, And I recommend this place to work.

    Cons

    This place is to far to my house, so the commute took like an one and haft hour, so I decide to look for another work closer to my heart use.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the good work, some managers to better than others, but it is the same in many places in Costa Rica.

    Pros

    At Newport Corp there is room to grow for hard workers who are motivated to advance. Upper management runs the company fairly well.

    Cons

    There is weird division between different facilities. It makes no sense why the CEO allows this to happen. The Irvine facility is in an old building.

    Advice to Management

    Run the company as 1 business!! Why does lasers get away with doing their own thing? Why do we spend huge money on a single ERP system but can't pull together HR?
