    I have been working at Optos full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cool product, great people, continuous opportunities to be challenged, good compensation, great benefits, serious about work/life balance.

    Cons

    Still trying to negotiate the transition from small, nimble company to established firm

    Pros

    Great people to work with. They leave me alone so I am able to get more work done. The company does support the departments.

    Cons

    Poor management. Employees do what hey want and rules are not always followed. Reviews are "standard". Every one gets the same increase in pay. Little to no advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get rid od the "union attitude". Managers should tell the employees what to do and not put up with the splitting hair excuses why they can't do what they are asked to.

  3. "quality"

    I worked at Optos full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Optos is a company with an excellent product. Great opportunity to grow a business line. Relatively small team, so you can have an outsize impact on the business.

    Cons

    Budgets are always upside down. Despite growing at 10-20% per year, the company always manages to have higher expectations for growth, which makes for a constant struggle to make the numbers. Quarter after quarter, you're always just slightly behind.

    Advice to Management

    Better to set realistic expectations, and hit them, rather than constantly being behind the 8-ball.

    I worked at Optos full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The technology is amazing and the people I work with were great.

    Cons

    Not a lot of advancement growth for females. Plus, it looks like as soon as they promote someone they lay them off a few months later.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your lower level employees with the same respect you treat upper management when laying someone off.

    Pros

    Great Medical device experience in Optometry in engineering, training, and sales. Possible advancement opportunities, business travel (everywhere). Great benefits. Good people

    Cons

    You can travel and work weekend, after hours and management won't notice or investigate. It's very easy to be missed in the hard work you do for them.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the people who do more than the 9-5. Understand that Field Service is more important than you realize. Find stars in the company that you meet outside of the conventions.
