Sr. Lab Technician/Analyst (Current Employee) – Billerica, MA – January 25, 2016
I have learned greatly from this employer but the benefits were very limited. I will greatly appreciate that the knowledge that I have gained from this job. My day usually went by quickly due to Very busy and productive days. They were lacking in management. I did not see any enhancement in my career through this company so I would like to find better opportunities.
Productive and steady paced work, great people to work with. Multiple tasks to keep you busy. Slow advancement and understaffed.

production operator (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – October 29, 2015
Worked at this company for many, many years... new management came in and implemented a testing to find defects in production lines. After three (3) consecutive failures, YOU'RE out-the-door ! They don't care about employee satisfaction, performance nor ensuring the employee is secure in employment. I don't recommend this company for no one ! Stay Away.. it's not a good place to work.
Plastics Molding machine operator (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, Co. – February 20, 2015
They expect so much of you in so little time. No time for a life. Only one day off a week, Fire people with 10+ years for failing the Gauge R&R test under so much pressure. Some who have never failed a quality audit, Not worth my time.
some nice people.
those in management positions on the shift i worked are not nice people.
PROCESS ENGINEER/ TECH (Former Employee) – Billerica, MA – August 22, 2014
I learned how critical process control is from the perspective of mapping a process or operation and being able to develop a programmable logic system that can be edited & documented as needed. This capability has basically been moved out of most small & medium sized businesses that are now reliant on outside contractors for support. Basically it was very import for me to know when & who to ask for help.
plenty of support for 6s, lean mfg etc.
the uncertainty of jobs leaving this area for overseas plants.
assistant (Former Employee) – Chaska, MN – June 4, 2014
I assembled devices in a cleanroom environment. The coworkers were great to work with. Management was switched around a few times in the time I worked there. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with great people and learning hoe to do something that I had never done before.
working with great people.
we knew going in to the job that we were going to get laid off at some point.
Productive and fun workplace without ping pong table
Process Engineer (Current Employee) – Chaska, MN – April 16, 2014
I follow the schedule dictated and support all the projects that NPD has planned. I look for the desired outcomes and try to build a project plan that will achieve that outcome. I define project scope, sets goals, and break work down into process steps. I then develop schedules and assignments, anticipate problems, orchestrate multiple activities concurrently, measure performance, and evaluate the results.
