Productive and comfortable workplace with a fun atmosphere
Office coordinator for HR department (Former Employee) –  ParsippanyMay 16, 2013
Evonik provided employers with a large cafe with a chef and variety for breakfast and lunch. Co-workers were very welcoming and friendly. I learned to use many programs on the computer and the hardest part of the job was reorganizing the entire file room and installing a new filing system.

Fast-paced environment, heavy workload
Lab Technician (Current Employee) –  Mobile, ALJanuary 4, 2013
over 400 analyses to be analyzied per day, rotating shift-work, looking for "upward movement" which has not presented itself. Hardest Part? None... I love the fast-paced multi-tasking required. Most enjoyable? My colleagues... whom I have learned a lot from, and consider most of them fmilyl
Pros
lots of overtime, company awards (jackets, caps), company events
Cons
lack of "upward movement" as i feel i am so qualified for
