Go-to-Market and Communications Manager (Former Employee) – San Digo, CA – December 28, 2017
The regular people are good but management is out of touch and will do anything to cut costs rather than show loyalty to those who work so hard. Some do nothing and are still around which is frustrating.
Decent pay, good location, interesting work
Cold management, struggling industry, no job security
Cool place to work with advancement opportunity if you apply yourself. My direct boss was amazing and he moved up in the company and the new director that took his place that was awful. Overall the company was fun to work for and the job was challenging. The people were great too. I had a great team and people that were trying to help me succeed. Got to travel and see places I never thought I would see in my life time. Only major other major issue besides the new boss was the pay was kinda low for the responsibilities I had. When you come into the company get what you want up front because its hard to recover what you should make down the road.

Zeiss was a great place to learn about and excel in a sales position. They provide great internal training and are focused on continuous success for all employees. Very demanding environment but overall great company to work for.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Kentucky – December 29, 2016
Local labs are what makes the company great and their employees work hard. Too many departments competing against each other at corporate level and not communicating makes for redundant work and frustration. Many great salespeople with account loyalties have been let go or left, taking business with them. Truly talented employees are overlooked for promotion because upper management does not take time to truly recognize and develop them. No clear direction for future and employees worry about losing their jobs.
compensation and benefits are great, so people stay
Senior Accounts Payable Specialist (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 13, 2016
We had down sized to the point our dept was overwhelmed. The coworkers were great we all rallied together to support each other, we all had double the work. We would work 10-12 hrs. Management was there but not there for the employees, which cause stress and anxiety on the employees. There was no team moral or positive motivation. When first started it was a great work environment. People would talk to one another we had a great culture and team building.
Great Vision Insurance, They had great charities to help others
Over prices insurance, No company functions, no positive motivation to encourage employees they were doing a great job.
Director, Business Development (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 25, 2016
Zeiss is a great company. Its biggest challenge is the alignment between the US business unit and the corporate business strategy. Very dynamic culture with continuous changes at all levels in the organization every year.
Carl Zeiss Vision Optical Engineer (Current Employee) – Delaware, OH – December 7, 2015
Zeiss is a great company to work for. The only negative is time away from home, which is at least 75%. The job is rewarding on a personal level. It's challenging because you never know what kind of problems will arise, but you always feel good when you accomplish the task and get the equipment back into production.
