Company Culture

They make attempts to make you feel as though you're making an important product but the pay and disrespect doesn't sync up.

Support from management

Management has to get info from management who has to also get info from management and so on. Only to get no answer or outdated ones.

Teamwork

The production workers try their best to work as a team despite the overwhelming odds of trying to steer a ship with no rudders or sail.

Freedom to work independently

No. You will constantly be micromanaged and if you do well you're seen as a threat.

Internal Communication

Management may as well speak in tongues.

Gender Equality

Heard on several occasion first hand the hate for any young female employees.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They treat the senior techs like they are lucky they get to stay there and they put very little stock into their feedback or ideas.

Career Development

If you're not part of the group of friends you will not advance.

Overall compensation for your work

401k and health insurance are fantastic. You're actual paycheck is terribly low. A company making surgical cataract lenses shouldn't be competing with Wal-Mart.

Office / Work Environment

It's a clean environment that's rarely cleaned unless an inspection is coming all the while blaring music that 90% of the workers don't want to deal with have to while trying to concentrate.

Environmental Friendliness

They seem to do well here but seeing as positives are often well veiled lies it's hard to know.

Work-Life Balance

Never known of a place that cared less in this area. It's the #1 worst factor. If you ever want to see your family DO NOT work here.

Company Image

I know hundreds of employees. I can't name one not part of the clique that says they are proud to work for this entity.

Job Security

Full timers are constantly setup to fail to be replaced with cheap temporary workers.

Handicapped Accessibility

They're good here.

Workplace Safety

They do a good job training.

Challenging Work

Depends on the job. Some are torture they're so easy and some are fairly challenging. The issue is there's no discrepancy for mistakes in these areas either and little to no increase in pay.

Inclusive / Diverse

Somewhat. Diverse enough to stay out of trouble with laws.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Start looking at your workers as the reason you get to have a job and not as an expendable commodity.

What I like about the company

Great 401k and insurance.

What I dislike about the company

Terrible pay. Long hours (12 hr shifts). Buddy system for advances. Can't stay with a plan. Constantly firing loyal employees for Temps. Disrespect to all production workers.

Company Culture

A barrage of propaganda will befall you.

Support from management

They are negative from the start of problem and assign problem to complainer.

Teamwork

Always someone of higher stature to credit themselves for your efforts.

Internal Communication

You know only what concerns your area.

Gender Equality

Don't believe what your told.

Attitude towards older colleagues

"Do not plan on retiring from here". says ex-VP

Career Development

Barrage of benign SOP's will convince you everything is professional and in order.

Overall compensation for your work

Standard 401K, Ins. and a 20$ turkey coupon for your Christmas bonus every year!

Office / Work Environment

Generally good, though some areas may be somewhat hazardous to your health.

Environmental Friendliness

Anything to portray a good image.

Work-Life Balance

While cutting benefits the barrage of propaganda continually stresses how much they've done to support your family and health.

Company Image

Job Security

"No one irreplaceable". says another ex VP
