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

    Pros

    Good Pay, some good folks to work with, take home work vehicle, paid gas with company vehicle, flexible time schedule (no time clock)

    Cons

    Managers need to be more in tuned with employees. Managers need to listen to employees and be apt to constructive criticism which if given correctly would make their job much easier. You have to fight for your vacation time, No sick days, Due to the nature of the business, you can be in subject to all types of weather year round.

    Advice to Management

    -Vacation policy needs revamped seriously. I know of plenty of ex-coworkers that are working there for many years and they only get 1 weeks vacation. They have to ask or negotiate a second week. Getting a third week is almost unheard of. There needs to be set and structured vacation policy put into place.
    -Hiring trained personnel off the street with the same mechanical skills and giving them better benefits and vacation doesn't sit well with the employees who got you where you are today.
