Assembler/Production (Current Employee) – Charlton, MA – September 3, 2016
This is great company to work for, There is growth within the company - BUT!- depends whom you work for, Politics and favoritism plays a big roll within the company. If you are not kissing supervisors a...you are a nobody, it doesn't matter if you have good work ethics. Lazy associates still lazy, hard working associates still busting their a... .They overlook your work ethics and achievements. Supervisor and HR linked together..That's number 1.
When it comes to any kind of harassment, HR is very incompetent, don't know how to deal with the situation. You meet up with them and they make you feel like if you are the one causing trouble..smh and the stalker still stalking... What are they waiting for?
Warehouse and Shipping lead (Former Employee) – Southbridge, MA – August 13, 2016
day are fast and busy! co-workers are great ,management I think need more workshops on communicating and understanding of different cultures. Also realizing people want to get ahead so implementing more training. Seeing final product going out the doors was great because you knew someone needed that certain unit for surgery. Even though its stamped with approval the hardest part is putting that pressure on yourself thinking once its gets to a destination that it works.
Employee. (Former Employee) – California – June 6, 2016
Awful management at KARL STORZ KSEA, Stay clear of this company. Unless you like to be Micro-managed and walked into boardrooms to be degraded on a constant basis. No opportunity for advancement. The review process is a smoke and mirror show. The only plus was the benefits package. The Employee has no rights at this company. Good Employees don't simply leave good companies. Good employees leave bad management.

Light Guide Assembler (Former Employee) – Charlton, MA – November 14, 2012
When i get to work, i start with loading fiber into tubes then hang them for alcohol content to dry up. After drying up, i harden it and put it oven and test afterwards. i learn to use most lab equipment during my time there and it was a good experience. They have the most secured management comparing to most companies i have worked with. Co-workers were so fun to work with because of their friendliness. The hardest part of the job was when i had to load the oven and was because of the use of high temperatures and the most enjoyable part is when i go to test the work done

Assembler/Inspection (Former Employee) – Charlton, MA – May 7, 2013
Worked mostly alone in a dark room, Learned to operate robot arm, Management in my department could of used some work, co-workers always willing to help, The hardest part about this job is not having all materials or safety equipment to do your job right. The most enjoyable part about this job is, getting your work done before it is due and having it be perfect even when you don't have everything you need, coming up with idea to achieve your goals.
