Former EmployeeWorked at Coorstek in Golden Heights, CO.

What I like

Employees have a sense of humor. Lots of parking spaces. Quarterly bonuses if goals are hit. Accumulated Paid time off starting at two weeks once hired on.

What I dislike

Managment changes often, sometimes you dont even know who you report to. There is a lot of overtime but sometimes they ask you to work to much

Suggestions for improvement

The buildings are old and the machines are just as old. The cafeteria has poor food choices they could have better healthier vending machines.

The company has much potential but is poorly managed, which makes it difficult to make progress improving the company

EmployeeWorked at AeroTek/CoorsTek in Worcester, MA at the time of review.

What I like

My manager is very supportive. I am able to take time off for personal issues without using PTO. I have been able to make some good personal contributions to benefit the company. The people I work with are good, hard-working people. They want to do a good job and need support from me. They are appreciative of my work to help them.

What I dislike

Management needs to be more involved with day-to-day operations, so they u defat and the work and what is required of their employees. Department managers need to work together better to support the company and other employees. The company tried to do too much with not enough people. I would like to see more support personnel hired st the plant.

Suggestions for improvement

More engineering support - I.e. hire more process and development engineers to better maintain and control the processes. The company needs a better system for growing employees into managers, so the managers better understand their processes, because they moved up in the company performing those processes. Better training processes to help teach people their positions more quickly and completely. The ability to cash in vacation time would be nice for those who don’t use the time.

Suggestions for improvement

Bathroom closer to department. Turn up hot water heater for hotter water would be great.

What I like

Everyone is very friendly and willing to help you if you need help.

What I dislike

The lack of management. Also how rates are decided by engineers and not the people actually preforming the job at hand.

Suggestions for improvement

Having employee feed back on rates and having management be more involved with what is going on, on the floor.

EmployeeWorked in Legal/tax at COORSTEK, INC in Golden, CO at the time of review.

What I like

Location

What I dislike

Current management style, it has gone from a highly moral and ethical company to one who only considers the bottom line and often takes unnecessary business risks

Suggestions for improvement

Trim the unneeded top level management, there are way more chiefs than braves

Company Culture

C

Internal Communication

very little corporate updates even when you work at corporate. For facility and production workers, even less.

Teamwork

Its talked about but the general consensus is that only golden kids get the benefits

Work-Life Balance

Unheard of

Support from management

Best to go it alone and hope for the best... don't tread in uncharted waters

Freedom to work independently

Depends on the department management ... there is a lot of micro management here

Inclusive / Diverse

Its all about who you know, not what you know

Gender Equality

Theres a glass ceiling at this company, very few female leaders, tends to be the good old boys club

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you're a favorite, you're well off, if less than... well, not so much

Office / Work Environment

call center atmosphere for corporate level employees, production level is even worse

Environmental Friendliness

squeak by on bare requirements

Handicapped Accessibility

The handicapped access is lame, pretty much restricted to parking spots

Workplace Safety

Cant speak to this

Overall compensation for your work

mid range, just enough to say they are competitive

Job Security

Not so much.... reliable, knowledgeable employees tend to be retired just before the required age and no thought to loss of knowledge is taken into consideration

Company Image

Family business...

Career Development

Used to be good, today, no investment in employee continuing education

Challenging Work

Because corners are cut there is a lot of fixing and band-aiding... definitely a challenge
