A once great company that has forgotten what made them great.
Lab Supervisor (Current Employee) – Fremont, CA – June 16, 2017
This is NOT a review for Air Liquide but rather a review for Balazs Nanoanalysis.
The bottom line is that Baalzs has become but a mere pit stop for those looking for a paycheck until they finish school, a quick year on their resume once they finish their undergrad or find their ideal job. This is more than apparent by the employee turnover rate.
Cross training and career growth is embarrassingly poor and office politics rather than one's work ethic determines the opportunities that are presented to you.
Seemingly every year, employees are asked to add more tasks to their list of responsibilities (although these tasks are not stated in their employment contracts), and every year employees don't get any pay raise, be it a cost of living adjustment or a merit increase. Because of this, most employees no longer feel that the companies success is related to their success.
Job security, flexible schedule, great 401k match
Poor pay, terrible benefits, no perks, no training, questionable management, low employee morale, high employee turnover
