Privately Held - growth challenges
Program Manager (Former Employee), Vancouver, WADecember 29, 2014
Pros: good staff
Cons: disjointed leadership
Privately held - growth challenges. The leadership was centric to the Vancouver office, yet was challenged to manage multiple sites in multiple countries.

The staff were well educated and knowledgeable about the technology and packaging applications.

Needs better management
Manufacturing Operator I (Former Employee), Vancouver, WAOctober 7, 2013
I enjoyed to work with co-workers. The management on the other hand was not as good as other companies I worked for. I did learn about how lasers work and are assembled. I did receive a ton of experience working at NLight, but did not have the opportunity to grow with the company.

Fun and nice coworkers, not so great managment
Manufacturing Operator (Former Employee), Vancouver, WADecember 6, 2012
Pros: lunch delivered and breaks when you want them.
Cons: unoragnised and uneducated
Fun place to work if you have the right bosses, but most of them arn't really sure what their doing. Enginiers are constantly having to fly back to their contries to get green cards re-enstated that you get stuck for a week with people telling you how to do somethign that they don't even know how to do. No advancement possible.
