Horrible company
laboratory technologist (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJanuary 8, 2016
Worst management ever. Lots of favoritism. People absolutely do not know what is the right way to do things. A very toxic environment. No wonder every second person leaves the company in 3-4 months.

Horrible management. Lots of favortism. Current manufacturing management has absolutely no management skills or training.

Good company
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  San diego, CAAugust 12, 2014
My typical work day consisted of reviewing batch records, pulling and storing the product, inspection of product, QA sampling, and product packaging and shipping. My coworkers were very knowledgeable and high spirited. The most difficult part of the job was the FDA inspections. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing a project through start to finish.
Pros
great working environment
Cons
the company hired a lot of people at a time

Horrible
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  San DiegoApril 29, 2014
Althea could be a good company. Unfortunately because current managment have been placed into their positions based on tenure and not experience makes for a horrible culture and not an enjoyable place to work. My advice would be if you desperate or new to the industry then go for it. If your experienced then don't bother! You won't last.
Cons
current managment, no structure. not open to change. no bonus unless you are manager and above

Good company but want everything cheaply done
Associate (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJanuary 24, 2014
Good company with nice people that work there. (For the most part) You know that saying "You get what you pay for?" This company would much rather pay two "biotech newbees" than pay for one that actually knows what they are doing. In the end it ends up costing the company WAY more money from the "lost" or "redo" projects than it would be to pay for good individuals.
Pros
some nice people
Cons
company cuts corners in areas that should be addressed

Great place to work with wonderful and talented people
Process Development Intern (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CASeptember 12, 2013
I learned a lot in my duration as a Process Development Intern. We had a large lab space, and with the guidance of a Process Engineer and Research Assistant, I learned to execute procedures using various equipments, work independently and as a part of a team, and truly get the hands on experience one should get in a PD laboratory.
Pros
great people!
Cons
low pay
