Transition.
Senior Designer/Generalist (Former Employee) –  Durham, NHMay 26, 2015
With the advent of the internet, Goss found demand for its products - heavy duty printing presses - in decline and was in a period of transition while I was there.

Technical work was very interesting, somewhat cerebral which I like, and relatively confined.
Pros
Constant work, professional environment, good management.
Cons
NH too cold

Goss is trying to maintain a solid structure
Senior Buyer/Planner, Service Division (Current Employee) –  Durham, NHJuly 18, 2012
Due to the industry as well as the ecconomic times, Goss has become a challenging enviroment to work in. I work with some great people that help make the days enjoyable & productive. After several layoffs Goss has become very top heavy by not reducing management.
