Great environment to work in. However location was not desirable. Management needs better communication with staff. Not to much opportunity available for advancement.

The owner is horrible. He constantly makes threats towards employees and treats them with no respect at all. Worst experience ever. The environment is extremely toxic, I do not recommended working here even to my worst enemy.

Working at Oz Optics has been quite the experience. You can definitely learn a lot from working here in terms of pacing, time management as well as juggling different types of work, but overall I'd say you'll learn those skills due to bad management and disorganization.

You never know when the owner is going to yell at you or someone else.

Hard to make improvements when the owner has to approve every process change. especially since he is not knowledgeable in all areas.

Very poor management, long after hours meetings held captive by senior management not relative to specific job tasks.

I learned several techniques for troubleshooting Virtual Machines and data servers. Most enjoyable part of the job was the diversity of tasks that where assigned to me. They ranged from working on optical devices to technocal programs on the computer such as Matlab, Labview, and various others.

I have been at OZ Optics since 1998, started as junior administrator.
Over the years, company helped me take a lot of training, now being a manager, I can say that OZ Optics values loyalty and hard work. It is a fast paced but family oriented manufacturing company, where I feel as if I am being part of a family.


This is the reason why I am still at OZ Optics (20 years)
Pros
Company has always supported employees in various ways, No politics here. Lots of learning apportunities
Cons
44 hours/week

Some of the staff made me uncomfortable and their behavior was unprofessional. They do not pay enough for the work required. The lack of communication skills provided by the owner's is discouraging and causes the employees to suffer.

I had a really good experience working at Oz Optics. I was young when I worked there and looking back feel like they are like the ex girlfriend that got away.. They say you never know what you have til its gone, and I feel that way about Oz Optics. They had so many great things for the employees. For example, a free meal every week. Shuttle buses to help people commute to and from work. Accessibility to indoor sporting functions, soccer leagues, all kinds of workout rooms, prayer rooms, fun family days with blow up castles and bbqs.. so many perks. They even had an easter egg hunt all around the grounds, paying out upwards of $20 per egg!! But it wasnt even about the money per egg, looking back just seeing how it made a great working environment, and great relations between co-workers.. Like I said earlier, the one that got away.. lol
Pros
too many to list
Cons
my own inexperience in industry

When it.comes to learning on the go it starts slow but eventually you will learn a lot since it includes a R&D dept. Overall the owners are a bit coocoo and when your wife is the HR director dont expect your rights to be honoured.
Pros
None
Cons
Management, shouting matches

Lead by excellent CEO. Great company with great people. Heavy workload as expected so work life balance can be a challenge sometimes but it is not "unreasonable".
Pros
Supportive colleagues
Cons
salary structure is on the low side
