awesome technologies, innovative thinking , but poor pay
Associate Engineer (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMJanuary 8, 2013
EMCORE develops and manufactures the most efficient solar cells in the world. Being in an environment of creativity and innovation was a treat. However, the work is stressful, the education expectations are high and the salary reflects neither.
Pros
awesome technologies and innovative thinking
Cons
poor pay

Easy job, minimal work
IT Assistant (Former Employee) –  Alhambra, CAJuly 9, 2012
I worked in an office space full time, with barely any work given to me. My boss perhaps did not really need me as he gave me very little work to do, which was rather irritating considering I was stuck at a desk all day. I don't mind a desk job, I just wanted work to do, and the tasks given to me were menial. I wished to be an assistant to him and was not given much to do!
Pros
good pay (per hour)
Cons
barely given any work

Typical day at work
Senior Buyer (Former Employee) –  Alhambra, CAMarch 13, 2014
What I have found is that there is no such word as a " Typical day" in a manufacturing work environment.
One can try to have a typical day where all protocols and back ups are established. Ultimately, typical = being able to fix, adjust while avoiding a line down
Pros
90% of the time, the procedures set in place work
Cons
10 % of the time the procedures set in place do not work
