"Could be a good place to work, but probably requires the business to be sold."

"I have gotten the chance to meet some really hard working, friendly, honest people."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"I would avoid interviewing with Edmund if at all possible."

What don't you like about working at Edmund Optics?

"Just about everything. Some family businesses are great places to work. Sadly Edmund is not one of them. Every decision (big and small) has to be approved by the owners daughter. Its so bad that qualified directors/managers are unable to have any real power/ impact. Even mundane tasks like buying supplies for the restrooms are handled by the owners daughter. Who buys cough drops to place in a public (or private!) restroom Crazy."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Allow management to do make the decisions they were hired for."
