Overall stressful environment, completely understaffed
Analyst (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – December 6, 2017
A good place to go if you're in need of an immediate job in production or manufacturing. There is some opportunity to change roles and diversify job experience in QA/QC. Plenty of concepts to learn, especially in the labs because there's alot of work to be done. The busy season is centered around the holidays and there is mandatory overtime.
Almost every department is understaffed and employees are expected to perform the jobs of those that leave or get fired, which can be overwhelming. This is an ok place to start a career right out of college but after a couple of years there is no advancement structure, no pay raises, or bonuses. PTO accrual for employees who have worked there for less than 5 years is a joke. Senior leadership does not have a healthy understanding of the daily operations in the facility which leads to constant miscommunication and disgruntled, overworked, unhealthy employees.
Pto, Medical benefits, overtime pay, 401k, some room for career growth
Long work days, no work/life balance, working on company holidays, no bonus structure, no upward mobility, understaffed, stressed out employees in a toxic work environment most of the time, upper management has unrealistic expectations with what tools are available to employees
