Here’s what current and former employees have to say:
“Pros: Great culture and no micromanaging. Cons: Relaxed sometimes too much; the company direction seems to be iffy; products are dated depending on division.” ––Current employee
“Pros: Given many opportunities to learn new skills and develop technical skills. The company likes to promote internally and considers everyone an integral part of the organization. Cons: Computer systems are not the best and involve a lot of paper handling, which makes the task at hand difficult. Project deadlines are not realistic and a lot of push for mundane tasks.” ––Current employee
“Pros: The company paid very well compared to office jobs that I have applied for. The building I worked in also has a great cafeteria with delicious food for cheap prices. The pace, though overall fast, can have a few minutes of downtime so it is not consistently fast, especially to those who are experienced in the office work life. Cons: This position really benefits from someone who has held a previous office position, especially in the medical field or quality control. I would not recommend this position to anyone who has not been in a cubicle before. This job also requires expert detail-orientation skills.” ––Former employee
“Pros: Good teamwork among coworkers; good work-life balance; no overtime allowed. Cons: Difficult to advance compared to people who have been there a long time; change can be slow.” ––Former employee
