While at the marketing department it gave the correct tools to become a sales person (my actual position). I gave me the opportunity to learn in deep the excellent products in Terumo portfolio as well as the relationship end users have with the brand.
Easy work, but long hours. The money is great and the people that work there are awesome. The work is very repetitive and can be very frustrating at times when they are trying to turn over big numbers for inventory. Not much room for growth if you are looking to move up from $13/hr this is not the place you want to work
Highly productive work environment with mutiple challenges and opportunities!
Senior Director Terumo Americas Corporate Accounts (Former Employee) – Somerset, NJ – July 2, 2013
A typical day at Terumo included a minimum of 12 hour work days wearing many hats participating in all facets of strategic decisions. My leadership skills were challenged daily with a very experienced team committed to success. The most challenging component of my job was working with the company Presidents and gaining concensus on opportunties with large Integrated Delivery Newtworks (IDNS) throughout the US. The most enjoyable experience was the autonomy and outstanding learning experience working with every functional group within US operations.
Assembler/Inspector (Former Employee) – Elkton, MD – August 19, 2012
This company was a well managed company with many benefits for employees. The only unpleasant thing was changing clothes when entering and leaving the work area. The co- workers were pleasant and easy to get along with.
many benefits--good to employees.

it is a male dominated company with mostly men progressing to top. Typical work was 6;00 am to 4;30 pm. do not apply for jobs to better yourself if you are not male. Hardest part of job was no recognizition for good job.
On a typical day of work I must first abide by the rules of the clean room by covering all exposed parts of my body with a white jump suit. Then I make sure my hands are sanitized as I make my way to my work station. At arrival I make sure all paperwork is properly filled out by previous shift and that station is clean and prepared for my shift. Then I must make sure all of my chemicals are fresh and inspect my machine for any possible problems and do maintenance if needed. Once everything is ready I start my job and meet quota and inspect my product for any defects. I am on shift work which means I work 12 hour shifts from 6pm to 630am and I typically work 4 days/wk. Due to the shift I work there usually is no one from management available and I am left on my own to do my work which gives me much independence but is not very helpful should problems arise. The people I work with seem nice but I work by myself and I am expected to stay at my machine and not socialize so I do not get to interact with them. The hardest part of my job is the upkeep of the machine and keeping it working properly. The most enjoyable part is when I encounter no problems with my machine and the night runs like it is meant to.
Good pay and benefits
Limited opportunities for advancement, poor maintenance on machines, and I would prefer not to work shiftwork and have a paid lunch
