Once a great company
Employee (Former Employee) –  Marquette, MINovember 16, 2015
This once great small company is slowly becoming your average large company. Ethics and quality were once the heart of the company but it has become all centered around ebitda. Upper management has created a toxic mix of yes men and ladder climbers.
Pros
Lots of great coworkers, Lots of interesting technology, Good place to gain experience for other employers
Cons
Management philosophies, ever eroding benefits package, HR department is a free for all, lack of personal growth potential

Processing Technician (Former Employee) –  Alachua, FLOctober 8, 2015
A typical day at RTI consisted of working in a sterile environment while using sterile techniques to process and package sterile tissue for surgical use. The management staff was always on hand to answer any questions and help with any issues that may arise. My co-workers were some of the best people I have ever worked with. Team work was paramount.

The hardest part of the job was being inside for most of the day with no view outside, However working with the people both management and peers made it worth while.
Pros
Benefits, pay, people
Cons
working inside without windows.

Manufacturing Helper (Former Employee) –  Alachua, FLJanuary 24, 2016
They're still learning their management structure. They were very good about cross skill learning and advancement. They were pretty good about how much you had to get done in a day and only scheduling for that, except for the Autoclave.

Company of Bullies
Associate (Former Employee) –  Alachua, FLJuly 6, 2015
Management are learning as they go, and unfortunately that means many employees are guinea pigs. Do one thing wrong, and you will suffer daily for it. Expectations are extremely high when learning a brand new job, and it doesn't matter the physical or mental disabilities you may hold. That's out the window if you mess up. They say they like a work/life balance but that's extremely untrue. Mess up and you're going to pay relentlessly. This company seeks out very young management and if you're not on board with everything their young managers like, then you're likely to be bullied until you change your mind or change your job.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

Distribution (Current Employee) –  Alachua, FLDecember 4, 2014
Has a good work environment, co-workers are great. Most managers will try to advance within the company. They have great benefits and care about their employees. They do a few family events during the holidays which is nice.

Join the Gossip or Leave
Communications Department (Former Employee) –  Alachua, FLJune 1, 2015
Each department is very different depending on the manager; however, it is very common that people are advanced solely on their personal relationship with the previous supervisor, as opposed to having actual qualifications and leadership skills to properly manage a team and/or department.

It's also not uncommon to find much drama and gossip in the workplace, so be prepared to wear headphones all day so that you can avoid the drama. But also be mindful that if you don't engage in the gossip, then you might be considered to "not fit in" and will be excluded from regular conversation.

Do I recommend this company? Probably not. If you want to progress in your career and advance professionally, then take a job elsewhere.

Those are my two cents.

Horrible Work/Life Balance, Poor Supervision
Donation Specialist. (Former Employee) –  Alachua, FLFebruary 8, 2015
When working for this company, you will NOT have a work/life balance. The management team is not concerned with the health or welfare of their employees, not allowing them to have lunches or breaks most days. Extremely stressful place of employment.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
No breaks / lunches, poor management, horrible schedule.

Sports Medicine Processor (Current Employee) –  Alachua, FloridaJuly 21, 2015
A typical day at RTI is one full of production goals and quotas. The environment that is created is on in which these goals and quotas are easily met. I have learned several skills while at RTI. I have leaned how to run an Autoclave machine, how to cut sterilized tissue into numerous sized graphs for surgeons and doctors, and how to decipher certain tendons in the body. I also have learned how to manufacture bone tendon bone and bone tendon graphs using sagittal saws and drills. The leadership team I am currently working under is good at what they do and good at promoting a work environment that is very enjoyable. The team I work with is very dedicated to maximizing the gift of donation and full of people willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. The hardest part of my job is, just trying to make sure I do everything I can to get the most out of a donor, and the most enjoyable part is knowing that what I am doing will change a recipient's life, and that makes me feel good!
Pros
great work environment, monthly luncheons
Cons
workload at times.

Cell Technology Specialist (Current Employee) –  Alachua, FLJuly 18, 2015
RTI is a pretty amazing place. There are many different departments to get involved with and even more different processes to master. One great thing about RTI is that the processors, who are closest to their work, are able to provide feedback that can lead to meaningful change and, ultimately, better processes.

If you are un-educated-steer clear
tissue tech (Current Employee) –  alachuaMay 5, 2015
very very political over there. Way too much he said she said type stuff. Especially if you work in the core, where management has never been. It's a joke and a trap. And if you are just a worker-the engineers treat you like an idiot.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
everything
