Par Mechanic (Former Employee), Winchester, KYAugust 11, 2015
Pros: Good benefits, great environment
Cons: Job reductions, shift
Loved the skills I used as a Mechanic at Osram. Some of the best management and co-workers I have ever had. Osram allowed me to take advantage of additional education opportunities that helped make me a solid and viable Mechanic. I enjoyed maintaining and reaching set quotas and goals daily and the satisfaction we shared of a well made product we was proud of. Each day was different as the equipment's response would vary day to day making each one different than the next.

World Class Manufacturer
Mechanical Group Leader (Former Employee), Manchester, NHJuly 21, 2015
Pros: Terrific hourly compensation and benifits package
Cons: Global restructuring forcing plant closures
Osram Sylvania provided a challenging and ever changing environment for which to hone key skills necessary to support large scale manufacturing needs. Seasonal demands presented ample opportunities to take advantage of overtime. Management always strived to communicate with the work force and to show appreciation through company sponsored events. Educational reimbursement was available for those wishing to participate.

NICE place to work
Laser Technician (Former Employee), Beverly, MAJune 29, 2015
Pros: Time flexibility
Cons: being a contractor
I worked in Beverly as a contractor in the Laser area I have never come across a group of people who get along so well and do not fight and back stab one another. They all do their work and help one another out. Although my commute was long it was worth going into work and doing my job and getting along with everyone of all levels.

The people are great but management has no clue.
Incandescent Mechanic (Current Employee), Saint Marys, PAJune 2, 2015
Pros: Wages are competitive
Cons: Health care is over priced and poor
From one day to the next you don't know if you are going to have a job or not. Upper management does a very poor job. They are very behind the times when it comes to trying to develop new products. The employees on the floor are great to work with, some of them will go out of there way to help others while some will try to find a way around helping anyone. It is also very hard to advance here after you have reached a certain point. All in who you know.

Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee), Winchester, KYApril 27, 2015
A typical day is Shipping/Receiving, cycle counting, and problem solving analysis.

The hardest part of the job is the union environment. It limits what can be done for individual team members.

You must love warehousing and inventory to enjoy this position. I love warehousing/ inventory and all things that encompasses supply chain.

Planning Analyst III (Current Employee), Hillsboro NHApril 3, 2015
Pros: Good wages and benifits
Cons: Very top down new ideas not recieved well at times.
Osram has been a good place of employment for the last 15 years. There have been significant changes in the last 5 years that could be considered a step backwards from an employee satisfaction standpoint.
