Fast paced environment. Work can be seasonal which can lead to fluctuating work loads. Company has been growing fast so lots of opportunity for growth. Decent benefits and pay. Great bonus program offered to all employees. Progressive company for this industry. If you work hard and smart great opportunities for advancement.
Chemist (Current Employee) – Westboro, MA – March 22, 2018
A good company with opportunity to grow, a lot of cross training so you get to learn new skills. It is fast paced and can be stressful at times, but you get to bring up ideas to management on how the work can be done differently or more efficiently. Good benefits and a bonus program.
Analytical Chemist (Former Employee) – Mansfield, MA – January 12, 2018
Cut-throat work place where only people who are sycophants of upper management succeed. Intelligence is not a valued attribute here. They want button pushers and trained gremlins. Managers are unable to communicate basic information to staff and some have no qualifications to even be in charge. Managers often lie to get their own way and put down those around them to present themselves in the best light possible. If you don't absolutely need a job here, that is you have other prospects, peruse them. This place is awful.

Chemist (Former Employee) – Westborough, MA 01581 – September 8, 2017
If you need the money it's decent, but its miserable. Very little room for advancement, but they always need warm bodies, so the jobs aren't about to disappear. HR is nice, but anyone in the lab itself can be inclusive and catty. It's ok to start with just out of college, but don't plan on staying. You can do better. Starting pay is around $14.00/hr.
Decent pay, good benefits.
Coworkers can be miserable to be around, and the management doesn't help things.
Lab Technician I (Current Employee) – Westborough, MA – March 31, 2017
Is a good place to work cuz have good benefits. They have good incentives Plus four times in a year they give you bonus it's not bad at all. I do recommend this place I been working for 2 years and I do like it like every other job there's disagreement but other than that is good.
Chemist I (Current Employee) – Massachusetts – July 21, 2016
Careful taking a job here - the problem with this company begins at management. They work everyone like dogs, pay low while management takes big salaries and bonuses. The workforce is pitted against each other and turnover is high. Don't waste your time here - look elsewhere.
Organic Lab Team Leader (Former Employee) – Westborough, MA – August 5, 2015
This was my first job out of college and was unaware how bad the conditions and treatment of employees. Subsequently I stayed, worked for four years, foolishly thinking that if you work had you will get reworded for it. Don’t be fooled, don’t work here unless you have to. They under pay and overwork employees. Also guilt or hold your job over your head to increase your work output. Please for anyone that reads this do yourself a favor and work anywhere else. Laboratory conditions are bad for your health management does not care how hard or effectively you work. Good luck to you if you work here and good luck trying to leave once your there. A nickname we used as inmates / employees was Alphatraz.
Chemist - Metals Preparation (Former Employee) – Westborough, MA – May 26, 2015
The work and the culture of the company are quite rewarding personally and professionally. The lack of compensation in salary is what makes this company not a great one. They seem not to mind a high turnover rate from employees. The are a stepping stone for recent college graduates who eventually move on to better paying companies.
