DPT review
Biotechnology- Lab Technician (Current Employee), Lakewood, NJDecember 9, 2014
Pros: scheduling, basic lab techniques
Cons: management
Biotechnology department is not a place where you really need to use your head or things you've learned through academia. There is a lot of repetition. The days aren't stressful and you learn basic lab techniques which are good for a starting/entry level position into a pharamaceutical lab but as far as a job for a career this is not a place to look for that. As like most places politics is a big part of this department and seemingly unhappy employees is a result. The hardest part of the job is really communication with management. The most enjoyable part is that you are not micromanaged with time. You receive a set schedule every day and it's up to you to complete the tasks.

Once a good company to work for but management has run the company into the ground.
Sr. Project Coordinator (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXAugust 4, 2013
A typical day at work is never the same and is always challenging. Management is unable to help with others accountability. Have excellent co-workers in certain departments and the hardest part of the job is trying to complete a task when you have to wait on another department to give you the information. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with other people.

Great place to start a career in the lab. The training is fast, but you will learn to work in a cGMP facility.

Horrible management (this includes HR); poor culture
R&D (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXApril 29, 2013
Pros:

The coworkers are nice. If you are entry level you can learn instrumentation and after that you are pretty much done learning there.

Cons:

The company does not like trying anything new (keep your ideas to yourself). They like to go 100mph without a seatbelt on.
Advancements are only available for the "yes" men without brains that reflect managements own way of thinking. HR always sides with management if you happen to have a problem. They will take all your joy and give you stress.
So unless you are part of mangement or HR, you fall under the poor treatment of them.

Line Operator/Assembly Line (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXAugust 30, 2012
At DPT Labratories a typcal day at work would be to maintain uniform, clock in, put hair nets and saftey glasses on, check the bulletin to see which line you would be working on for your shift and what the order was for, how many etc.. have a breifing with all staff, go to your line and begin the production line. (rotate from filler postion back to the pallet every 30 min or so).
