I have been at this company for 7 years. Since then the work is very slow had lay off last year, we had a shut down in July for a week. Also we are working 32 hours. The military batteries are slow and medical field is also declining. People right now are worried for there jobs and health care.

Great employees and the fast paced work keeps you busy. The management departments were not always on the same page which made it difficult to get things done. Unfortunately, production moved their operations to mexico, leaving 100+ workers out of a job.
Receptionist/Assistant (Former Employee) – Raynham, MA – February 18, 2016
Signed into the receptionist computer each day for only one week and signed people in and out of the building. Ordered food for meetings that were going on within the building, ordered supplies needed, did side projects. Also helped the human resource manager with filing important documents and organizing them after my week was up for the receptionist fill-in.
Production Associate/Final Inspection (Former Employee) – Raynham, MA – January 14, 2016
The company is open to giving their qualified employees trainings for professional advancement. The Managers are very helpful and approachable as well as the HR employees if we have any questions concerning benefits and other work matters.

The work is relatively easy, even a 10 year old could do it. Do not expect to exceed and move up in this company. They only hire externally. They keep the fake people who complains and does nothing. They let go all of the good hardworking people. The company is going downhill where there were 3 layoffs in one year. This company gets hyped about nothing. Trust me they will pick and choose their own people. Unless you're fake and kiss butt you will not survive in this place. The only good people left in this company are the ones that are sticking it out until they're able to leave. If you need the money desperately then I would still say STAY AWAY!!!
The only good few people left of the company
everyone upstairs and bad pay and people that's left

This company is moving out of the country and has poor employee morale and non conducive environment. The production area seems to be the least affected by lack of team cohesion. The most enjoyable part of this job is quitting time.
Advanced Systems Labs technician (Current Employee) – Beaverton, OR – November 3, 2014
A typical day starts early for me. I come in, gather data from our Maccor 4000 machine which ran a learning cycle for the battery packs.
Unload the batteries, load new batch and enter in a given filename and run program (for about 5 hours).
What I learned: more about battery chemistry, various batteries the company makes for portable medical devices such as defibrulators, AEDs, and more recently a device that settles serious back pain.
What is enjoyable about my job in the lab is a more laid back and relaxed workplace (compared to assembly which as an hourly quota for building packs). I have experienced both areas of the company.
Management is quite transparent to its employees regarding business decisions that affect everyone and how the company is performing on a quarterly basis and gives an overal rating card (green, yellow or red).
My co-workers in the test lab are easy to get along with and we engage in occasional humorous banter.

Medical benefits tend to include a exhorbitantly high deductible.
Team Coordinator (Former Employee) – Canton, MA – March 22, 2012
I like that job because it was high technology .was working with lithium batteries for NASA, fighter planes, laptop, perforation undersea equipment.were facilities with more security,because chemical compounds that were used was like a time bomb the company. explotions of batteries sometimes occurred because they required a degree of appropriate temperature while joining. a job exiting and dangerous at the same time.
all normal and friendly atmosphere, has good benefits including a bonus.
