Decent pay, poor management, old poorly maintained equipment
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Carthage, ILDecember 23, 2016
Management uses the term "lead by example" but doesn't know the meaning of the phrase. They love to micro manage and while the all the other workers are working overtime (including weekends) to get caught up on projects, they are in at 7:30 and out by 5 and you'll never catch them coming in on weekends. They won't stand up to corporate to implement better policies it's always "just do it because corporate says so". It's always paperwork before projects; they are more concerned with tracking hours in a time tracker than they are with accomplishing tasks. They harp about following procedures and then come back with a task and expect it done quickly and with orders that go against procedure.

Much of the equipment that is used there is older but doesn't get proper maintenance and some of the machines get used around the clock. Many of the computers and computer systems are in desperate need of an upgrade because they are slow and the programs are designed for outdated projects.
Pros
Overall the place is pretty clean. The work isn't difficult or fast-paced.
Cons
Poorly managed, desperately need new equipment and software. Policies need revised.

Good co-workers, very poor management
Tech (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKSeptember 30, 2016
Constant changes, "just because I said so". No job security. A typical day is complete chaos.
Good production workers but they are under constant threat of losing their job to Mexico or Egypt, or just to scare everyone into silence. No production worker or tech ever got a raise in the two years I was there. Upper Management treats employees like children. Lines on the floor where you can walk, taped off areas for all desks, shelves, materials, even waste-baskets under desks. Everything is almost military-grade uniform (except a dirty workplace and restrooms) and poor air-conditioning in the work areas. (Management area very clean and cool, well lit, etc.) Lower level managers are more reasonable, but can only do so much with constant interference from "above".
All for 30-minute lunches, low pay and no raises. Constant pressure!! Beware!!
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
upper management constantly hawking employees

good pay, bad management
electronic technician (Former Employee) –  ChicagoApril 8, 2014
I liked working there, but management lies too much. They only care for themselves and don't care for the little guy that does all the work. They will sacrifice the guy that makes 9/hr, but keep a manager that does nothing making 100k.
Pros
the employees are good people
Cons
no pay raises, bad managers
