Was run out of the company after 24 years of service
Production Manager (Former Employee) – West Chester, PA – August 22, 2018
I was a casualty of the lack of experienced management. After devoting 24 years of my life & career to Johnson Matthey, had my position "eliminated" so they could get out of having me retire with full benefit and replace me with an inexperienced (cheaper) supervisor. Up until 5 years ago it was a great company and business to work for, which is why I did for 24 years. I was among 7-8 people with similar tenure situations that were all let go with differing causes but similar situations.
I took the severance package and found a position that values experience and knowledge.
Stable mature business.
Management that is primarily interested in self preservation!
