Great learning experience
DEKA is a great place to work if you are new to the biotechnology/pharmaceutical industry. However there is no advancement for the test technicians unless you are an engineer. All test technicians are contractors, so there were no benefits when I was working there a few years ago. The atmosphere overall is great though. All the employees are fun to - more... work with, they keep the stress level to a minimum, and occasionally have parties for their employers. I learned a lot about medical devices, proper GDP, and a cGMP environment. I would love to work for DEKA again if I was given a first shift full t ... - less
ProsNot too stressful, fun people to work with, and great place to begin learning about biotechnology
ConsNever could work first shift, testers were only contractors and rarely got hired full time. No benefits for contractors.
