Material handler (Former Employee) – Orangeburg – April 29, 2013
I worked at Instrumentation Laboratory for 6 weeks. The main supervisor is a very bitter older man who treats his employees horribly, especially his secretary. You could always hear him screaming and cursing at her. There was one team leader in particular who is racist against Hispanics and had no problem making it known. The work load is fine and the hours of operation as well. Its the people that work there who are not easy to work with.
Manager (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – March 16, 2015
Company overall is a good place to work, but experiencing growing pains. Management is in flux. Top heavy in some departments. Having an impact on process and procedures. As a result the company is becoming less personal and less like a family than it was just a few short years ago. Many employees are starting to retire after long careers at IL, but new employees can't count on that kind of loyalty from the company any more. Bottom line and head count focused.
SCIENTIST (Current Employee) – Orangeburg, NY – January 23, 2014
like the fast pace at this manufacturing facility. Co-workers are nice to work with managment does not value talent and harness the expertise at hand hardest part of a job is to work in a company where hard work is not appreciated except for some hand claps. Employee morale is low. Fun part is co workers. Management needs to change. HR needs to be more sociable and approachable.
Instrumentation Laboratory is a company that cares about its employees as much as it cares about progress in diagnostic technology
Immunochemistry R&D Engineering Assistant (Former Employee) – Lexington, MA – July 28, 2013
I enjoyed working in this environment. There was a demand for results, but as an intern, I received highly adequate training and preparation for my tasks. I believe it was the interpersonal guidance I received that allowed me to contribute to this company with impact under such as short amount of time.
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Orangeburg – March 26, 2015
No real management at all. Supervisors have no idea what is going on, only plan for the here and now no vision for tomorrow. Equipment is old and has not been taken care of in years. No teamwork or training, every man for himself. Money was great but not worth it. Health benefits were expensive 401K match is good.
Senior Quality Control Analyst (Former Employee) – Lexington, MA – February 13, 2015
They provided interesting work in an environment where my supervisors appreciated what I did. I was able to continue developing my skills with in house training, outsourced retreats for training, and they compensated for online courses I completed.
They had nice company events and the 401K was great with 8% matching. If I did not leave for more education I would still be there.
Principal Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – March 19, 2014
The hardest part of this job is keeping up with rapidly changing priorities. Management plays favorites to the detriment of the rest of the organization. Recent run ins with the FDA have caused a massive shift in culture, which will improve some things once the dust settles.
