    I worked at EMCORE (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting Design Work. Employees were a good group of people Direct management pretty capable. Benefits were pretty typical. They did give pretty worthless stock options in stead of bonus.

    Cons

    Company had a furlough and forced pay cut.The equipment was old and it was hard to get modern equipment for testing. No real career growth options

    Advice to Management

    No Real advice beyond try to introduce yourself to the employees more. Walk around, say hi. As them what they're working on. Make a presence beyond the all hands meetings.
