Purchasing Analyst (Current Employee) – Wilmington, MA – May 22, 2018
very busy and upbeat in the department I work in we are very close and work very well together. More learning would be good for this position/department. I also thing more team building projects would be good to spread your wings.
No longer offering flex work hours or remote working (work from home)
IT Engineer (Current Employee) – Wilmington, MA – May 20, 2018
Company hours are now strictly 8:30 - 5pm, with no flextime hours allowed; which has devastated morale. On-boarding training is so minimal, that it feels like new people become severely frustrated right away. Management is completely out of sync with what the workplace needs to create a collaborative environment to work in; stress is over the top. Workplace culture used to be enjoyable before 2014, but has taken a severe turn for the worse after the company split from its parent OSRAM and is under new management. The hardest part of the job is reaching impossible deadlines with fewer technical co-workers available due to company downsizing. The only enjoyable part of the job is the workplace area is an open cube farm with adjustable tables and room to breath.
Work area is decent
No flex work hours or work from home, advancement is stagnant, even for the best and brightest people
Demanding and high stress with no room for advancement
Product Manager (Current Employee) – Wilmington, MA – March 30, 2018
A typical day is 10-12 hours long. In the past, there were many opportunities for learning but those are no longer available. The company used to allow flexibility but that is also being removed. Hard work and dedication are expected but the return for effort is non-existent.
Good benefits - health care, 401K
long work days, limited flexibility, no opportunity for advancement
Forklift Operator/Material Handler (Former Employee) – Ontario, CA – March 18, 2018
This was a great place to work until they got new management.. The morning supervisor harasses you if you don't do what he says even if its not your job title. This job is going under soon, especially with the union contact ending this year, probably layoff more people and take pay cuts, less benefits, less paid time off and vacation.
CPE (Current Employee) – Exeter, NH – March 10, 2018
A typical day was mixing or extruding the product.Making product better,management is always there to help when needed.Hardest part of job was,getting the quality needed.Enjoyable was making good quality product.
Letting everyone know they did a great job for the quarter and giving a free lunch.
lack of material at times due to equipment issues.
Group Leader Robotic production Operator (Former Employee) – Exeter, NH – January 6, 2018
my time there was fruitful till osram carved out the business unit,downsizing by retiring high pay employees made the unit aqiurment easier in my eyes,this was understandable to an extent,work loads tripled for most of the employees and stresses went way too high
Senior Associate (Current Employee) – Wilmington, MA – December 11, 2017
Ledvance was acquired by a Chinese company. Unfortunately, ever since the acquisition and losing a MAJOR customer morale has been at an all time low. Employees are overworked, overburdened and the company will hire new younger employees but months later undergo layoffs. The work environment is not stable. The industry is in a massive decline and therefore there is no advancement. CEO also got let go. Losing customers left and right.
Nice Ikea office furniture
Long hours. Taking on responsibility for those that got laid off. I dont know how to do their job.
LEDVANCE is not catching up fast enough with technology and markets.
Financial Analyst III (Current Employee) – Wilmington, MA – November 12, 2017
LEDVANCE was born of OSRAM Sylvania. Excellent place to work but the recent changes in the company make me doubt it will be there much longer. Plants are being closed, people laid off, loosing customers. Overall, not a bright future, despite of what management is telling the employees.
Just a Nobody obviously. (Former Employee) – Wilmington MA – October 19, 2017
Too many Chefs, all with paper degrees and no resourcefulness. They heavily depend on lower level people's work to justify their existence and yet not allow them in performance reviews or consult with them prior to committing to a product/project. Many of these are in survival mode meaning can't trust and share anything you come up with. Some of them learned the skills to survive even if there was a world war outside! Just poor culture allowed to linger for long! Some post fake good reviews.. who really jumps in joy and take the effort to post good ones?
