Coherent, Inc. experience report

  • 20.Feb 2018
  • Employee

Leadership lacks Leadership

2.17

Company Culture

It is a very mom N' pop shop.

Workplace Safety

A co-worker wrote me a threating text message about the IT Director. I turned into my boss, which he in turn reported it to HR. Needless to say, this same person is still working there. I felt scared.

Suggestions for improvement

  • When the Director of IT states that he know's nothing about IT....then I think it is about time to replace the IT Director with someone who does. The internal processes and procedures are circa 1988

What I like about the company

There are some redeeming qualities there, such as the quality of the products they produce. However, specifically speaking for the IT department.. very Stagnate!

What I dislike about the company

Outdated process and procedures, Fiefdoms, unqualified managers, and an overall lack of vision.
