Racist Management
Worker (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GAMay 22, 2018
Management is racist. It is hard being a minority working for that company. Minority workers are treated horribly and management is okay with abusing minority workers.

Good place to work if you are in "The Circle"
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Smithfield, PAMay 10, 2018
Management only cares about certain people. Morale is very low, employees work there bc the pay is good. Do not apply there unless you are desperate for a job/pay! You will lose years off your life!
Pros
Pay
Cons
Not Challenging, Managers/Supervisors don't care about their Employees

Low Morale
Analytical Chemist, Quality Control Lab (Current Employee) –  West Deptford, NJMay 3, 2018
We are not compensated enough for the amount of work expected. There is plenty of room for advancement (if you are close friends with management), with lots of opportunities to learn new things every day.

Controls tech
Electronic controls tech (Former Employee) –  Smithfield, PAApril 19, 2018
All they do is lie. They dump every problem on the controls tech. They promote based on how well you suck up not ability or talent. This is a great stepping stone to better things !!!!!

Good place to work and learn
Production Technician (Current Employee) –  Conshohocken, PAApril 2, 2018
It's a good company that needs a lot more talent to get going. With so much potential, they need to find out how to do more with what they have. Some departments have great chemistry while others seem to be more cutthroat.

Management forgets about the workers. Safety is preached but not practiced.
Production Group Lead (Current Employee) –  West Deptford, NJFebruary 23, 2018
Safety is supposed to be number 1 but that only happens when it is convenient for management teams. No communication throughout departments so everything changes by the hour. Managers have worked their way even though they are way under qualified for the position. No team work throughout shifts, everyone is worried about their job and not being on the bottom of list.

Process Controls Engineer (Former Employee) –  Wayne, PAFebruary 23, 2018
Johnson Matthey was a bad place to work. Management does not understand what occurred on the floor; yelling about odd and arbitrary things. Constantly working long hours in difficult settings practically around the clock.

Can be a good place to work, at first.
Development Engineer (Current Employee) –  Wayne, PAFebruary 8, 2018
How much you enjoy Johnson Matthey depends almost entirely on the department/position you are going in to. While mechanical engineers can advance here, having some sort of background in chemistry really is the key. The people/culture are what make the job enjoyable, specifically those you work with every day.

No future
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Ravenna, OHFebruary 3, 2018
It's a high school atmosphere, no advancement opportunities. Everyone will talk behind your back about you. This company started in a barn and has not updated, some of the worst equipment available to you. This place will be shut down in a few years due to no work. Most days you will just be sweeping the floor because of that. Would not return, Can't recommend it.

Engineer in North America
Engineer (Former Employee) –  West Deptford, NJJanuary 28, 2018
While a stable company for 200+ years, Johnson Matthey does not value ability and reward merit. Many talented young university graduates left Johnson Matthey due to lack of career advancement and support for professional development, compensation was significantly below average but benefits were great. Management was not admirable and human resources created a very toxic work culture of fear and restriction.
Pros
Benefits, Stability
Cons
Management, Culture, Compensation, Career Advancements

Slow pace, stuck in their ways
Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  张家港市December 15, 2017
They don't use their resources well - despite efforts to get on projects, I was often left doing very little. Large scale projects also had little oversight.

Management has been there for years so there is nowhere for younger hires to go.

CEO continues to put in new initiatives, so there is only tenuous support for each one.
Pros
healthcare, pension matching
Cons
management

Buyer I (Former Employee) –  Devon, PANovember 18, 2017
Culture is not open to new ideas and technologies right away. There is no room for advancement and technology is not ready to update systems to help increase productivity.

Not the company it used to be, on its way down....
Director (Former Employee) –  LondonNovember 6, 2017
New CEO only cares about stock price and his career in the company.
Only implements improvements to show to stock holders, no interest on improving the well being of the corporation's employees or business in a long term.
He is not aware of the improvement plans and what is the impact.
No support.
Pros
Insurance, benefits
Cons
Does not feel like a company working together towards a common goal.

Good benefits, but did not invest in new equipment
R&D/Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTOctober 14, 2017
Title says it all. Perhaps their new endeavors will be maintained. They seemed to be moving in that direction when my branch was sold. I would rather not write this review, but Indeed required it.
