QC Incoming Inspections (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – December 5, 2016
A typical day working as QCM is pretty straight forward. Inspect incoming materials and inspect in process product. Staff there is generally friendly and optimistic. Hours can be hectic sometimes and splitting the day shift into 2 shifts happens occasionally.
Manufacturing (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – December 3, 2015
Intimidating atmosphere to keep the greedy, uncaring CEO happy. HR will tell you to suck it up if you have any complaints. They'll lie to you coming in the door of how great the place is, only to suck you in to do three people's jobs. It's a revolving door company. They whittle away perks every year and take more paid time off away from you. If you there for more than a year, you're a veteran. Backstabbing co-workers. Everyone looks out for themselves. The "It wasn't my fault" philosophy lives well here. If you're w looking for a work through intimidation kind of workplace, then this is for you. If not, you will not stay long. Good luck. They should merge with a bigger company, which is the long talked about rumor, so they can clean house in upper management.
Manufacturing (Former Employee) – Woburn, MA – October 11, 2013
Anika was the perfect place until the current CEO took over. Greedy, bullyish, condescending, incompetent and heartless. Got mad when the employees wanted to watch tv during lunch to see the 9/11 events unfold.
Manufacturing Operations (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – August 21, 2012
A typical day at Anika could be busy or not much to do.. all depend in what department you are working. There are some area that have a lot work to get done, and others that do not have much to do but the personnel are in there just in case you need them. For those people that are working direct with the manufacturing process do not have quality time with the family because always is something to do. I believe the higher management do not realize these details. However is a growing company with good products.
