Suggestions for improvement

  • By keeping management, we could keep more employees. We need to figure out how to keep good employees.

What I like about the company

Always work to be done. Job security is a huge plus. The people that work on the floor will do anything for each other. We have an attendance program where perfect attendance each month gets you 25$ and there is a quarterly bonus and drawings for perfect attendance. KIK helped make my leadership skills stronger. I worked my way up the chain from a line worker to a supervisor now.

What I dislike about the company

Management turnover is high. We get a new manager in after 6 months and they change everything before we have a chance to make the previous changes work. We need more constants.

Support from management

Very difficult to get support from higher up the leadership chain when its needed.

Teamwork

Chemists and lab admins work together very well.

Internal Communication

This is not a strength of this organization.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Lots of great experience from the more tenured individuals.

Overall compensation for your work

Wages are not good for those with the most skill.

Office / Work Environment

Labs are clean and relatively safe.

Environmental Friendliness

Indifferent

Work-Life Balance

Aside from the busy season, the work life is very flexible.

Challenging Work

Once you get accustomed to the position, it is fun to find new challenges.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Improve the top down communication they are so in love with. The favoritism is strong within the career path.

What I like about the company

It was a great place to gain experience. The chemist position allows you to get a lot of instrument experience that isn't available in other companies. My peers were the best part of the position. Great people, great coworkers.

What I dislike about the company

Merit raises were fairly modest. Best way to get the raise you have earned is to entertain other offers and see if they match.
