Great company for the ambitious
Sales Applications Engineer (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAOctober 26, 2017
II-VI Optical Systems' dynamic, fast paced work environment, is a breeding ground for meaningful opportunities. Great for the individual who isn't afraid of change and willingness to improve. Upper management is engaging and provides useful feedback for continual improvement. Co-workers have an eye for quality and work towards making the best products. A large company with a small company feel.

Poor management
Engineering Technician I (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAOctober 3, 2017
Very unprofessional management. Two members of upper management (one being higher up than the other) at the Philadelphia site are married; HR and other management within the corporation are well aware. Yearly raises are substandard. Tardiness is accepted, without consequence, from employees with more longevity. The turnover rate is relatively high at the Philadelphia location considering this company refuses to pay its hourly employees what they're worth. Most hourly employees are laid back and easy to get along with. Benefits are pretty good. The Philadelphia location is quite small (no more than 35 people). It's a great place to work as long as management likes you.
Pros
Benefits, hourly employee rapport
Cons
Low pay, terrible raises, conflict of interest within management

Too Much Politics .. not much action
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Murrieta, CAMarch 26, 2015
Alot of stress and pressure from top managements level, unfair treatment,no trust in middle management level, CEO prefer to do his own footwork and micro management.

Expect long hour,day and night for all worker. too much talking , no action, and when come to the deadline, management want workers to work long hours. no planing or proactive, only react when deadline hit.

Turn over rate are high for employees to stay long term, especially the one who contribute the most dedicated.

on the opposite side, the none- productive employees are enjoying their sweet time and tend to stay longer since they don't need to contribute much and get the same bonus share like everyone else.

You have to fit in the politics system in order to fit in the group or else.
Pros
Great place to work with the right management style
Cons
Unless you know how to become a politician, otherwise wont fit in the system.
