Machine Control Inspection Lead (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – September 12, 2017
Steady to hectic work load. Multi taxing a must. Friendly atmosphere. Skills needed to do your job were always available. Attention to detail is a must. Great satisfaction knowing your work made a difference in the diagnosis and treatment of a person's health.

small company with very small company culture keep your head down work hard trust no one and you can get ahead there is overtime, things to think about the company is very stable but with very little growth
OCD is the most politically charged place I have ever been employed, and I actually worked for a congressman at one time. There are many good people that work there and a lot of great folks that have been there a very long time,BUT..... If anyone in the training department dislikes you in any way you will fail any and all courses you attend. After that you are dismissed because you are unable to grasp the equipment and technology, even thought you may have mastered it. There is no grading in those classes, it's all subjective. No grades to fall back on. HR is no help at all, all they try to do is hide the corruption and keep the company in the clear.

There is a lack of interaction and ability to grow in the company. There is a minimum of 8 year requirement for any sort of consideration of promotion or movement. Management is more concerned about their own numbers and will put undue pressure on employees to make their numbers.
Sr. Supply Chain Analyst, Puerto Rico & Caribbean (Current Employee) – Guaynabo, PR – April 16, 2017
Ortho Clinical Diagnostics was a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson who was acquire by an independent investor. Now, the company is working on developing its own culture, business strategies and procedures for all its areas. It's an excellent challenge to work for a new-formed company.
New company, able to accept different points of view.
The work life balance at Ortho falls almost entirely on the side of work. I am regularly asked to provide analysis by 'tonight or first thing tomorrow'. Those with family obligations are looked down upon because they cannot stay as late. Roles are regularly collapsed and headcount removed from the company so don't expect the balance to improve anytime soon.

Management (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – January 23, 2017
Decent place to work. Many changes still to be made as a result of the J&J sale in 2014. Requires a lot of hard work and dedication to ensure the success of each individual, department, and the company as a whole.
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) – NY – December 18, 2016
It is a challenging, yet rewarding career. Professional in everything they do and it has been a pleasure to work at OCD. The company has been through some extensive changes and this is resulting in many moves internally when put incredible weight on the field to keep the wheels moving.
Microbiologist - Quality Analyst I (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – December 13, 2016
The people are good and the work is interesting. Great benefits and the company keeps you informed on what's going on. Only downside is that the company is going through a transition period and people are getting laid off.
Lab Technician (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – March 6, 2016
OCD is a wonderful place to work. The management is very knowledgeable and the company is really improving so it is a great place to be right now. However, there are people who have been contracted through this company for upwards of 15 years ad not "hired" into the company itself. Some of these employees do not receive benefits such as health care, paid time off, sick time, or holiday pay. For the amount of education required to even land an entry level position here, I find this to be extremely insulting to the employees who are still in these contract positions. If you require a bachelors degree, you are looking for professionals who should be getting benefits that anyone working at McDonalds full-time does. Like I said the people you work with are great and the actual jobs are very interesting, just a slap in the face to put your time and effort into a company that obviously does not value you enough to hire you on full time and give you benefits that are much deserved.
Quality Engineer II (Current Employee) – Raritan, NJ – February 3, 2016
Great benefits, people and products. A typical work day is sometimes chaotic and sometimes slow. Learned how to work at a professional level with cross functional departments. Management is understanding and one could balance work life and personal life well.
