Administration (Current Employee) – West Chester, PA – May 12, 2017
Need to be willing to work hard but lots of perks including good pay. They are hiring new managers that have alot of experience managing that I'm hoping will help some of the issues from the past. The hardest part is that they need more employees to fill the holes so all the work can get done.
Tooling Services (Current Employee) – West Chester, PA – March 9, 2017
I had high hopes and for this place. I thought I was going to move up and make improvements. I've never had such a lack of respect from management ever! This company is based upon pride and vanity not quality and efficiency. Management does not have it together and if it wasn't for the fact they are in a medical field that company wouldn't survive. it should have died a long time again. If you ever do find a new job and you think you'll do the nice thing and give your 2 weeks notice, don't ! you'll be walked out right then and there no matter what job title you hold. the bulling as been under construction for almost 6 years! and they aren't even half way done yet. How about the rain water that comes in the roof when it rains? how about the extra fire doors that are bolted shut?
basically if you work here, never stop looking for a career elsewhere.
Accountant/ Payroll and Database Specialist (Former Employee) – West Chester, PA – February 16, 2017
I worked here for a while, started as an assistant and became a manager within a year. BUT the company has a seniority complex. i did work better than people who have been there for years, so they felt threatened and they decided to lay me off for their own safety and job security. its an alright company but they need better management skills.
This review is completely false. First, this particular employee was given the opportunity to move from an entry level clerical position in our accounting department to a payroll and administrative positon in our HR Department. Therefore, the statement that “I became a manager within a year is not true. “
Second, management was not threatened by your product BUT truly disappointed by your daily output and overall personal conduct.

These people have no respect for their employees what so ever. They treated their engineering interns like complete you know what. They put them in positions that they were not hired for and screwed them
Operator (Former Employee) – West Chester, PA – April 12, 2016
Typical day I come in and get assigned to a machine or two by the cell leader. Then I would figure out the jobs that are being ran on the machine look at blueprint and learn the part. I would also be doing in-process inspection on the parts that are being ran and adjust the offset accordingly. If I ran the job completely through I would then switch to the next job and change the collets out and tools for the job using the set up sheet provided with the job. I was also asked to debur the parts in the down time between parts.

They work you to death. The owner yells at everyone. Curses at you. You feel like your walking on eggshells. It's a revolving door. The place is awful. Everything has to be spotless and appearance is everything.
Don't read into the lies, management is workaholics who don't respect employees

Where do I start. All I can say i've never been fed such a huge amount of lies from anyone, you'd think they are con-artists. All they talk about is how amazing the place is to work, and everything they do for the employees. They plan on building gyms, training classes, temporary housing for out of state interviewee's (b/c they pushed all the good local people to quit), but none of the current employees care about that all.
All upper management cares about is appearance. They have easily 10+ custodians cleaning the shop on a daily basis. They have highly qualified welders / fabricators running around the machines with touch-up kits fixing any sort of paint chip. The entire shop must remain SPOTLESS at all times. Doesn't matter if you are doing machine maintenance, deburring parts, or setting up a machine. They will gladly let you know that your area isn't clean enough, doesn't matter if you are working like mad to get things done.
Next up is the horrific air quality conditions. All the machines have oil / vapor collectors, but none of them work correctly, which causes oil vapor to be released into the air. During a sunny day, you can see a fog of oil in the air from the skylights. OSHA has been in twice in the past 8 months regarding this and nothing has been done to improve it.
Employees are generally overworked and stressed out. Management sets unrealistic deadlines for customer deliveries and expect the employees to work even more hours (50+ minimum a week) to trymore... to reach their deadlines. Generally, employees are not happy and do not want to be there. I have seen 15 people quit in the past year alone.
These are just a couple things; I could go on for a while. Just trust me, If it seems too good to be true, then it most likely is. Run far away.less
