Stressful, constant change in management.
Technician (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYAugust 7, 2018
Always playing catch up. Poorly managed under a corporate base that is slowly destroying the business that was so strong. Knowledge base is being eroded by driving away experienced personnel.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Dirty environment, worn out equipment.

Lonza is a leading CMO. I learned a lot from the company and peers. The company has an abundance of experiences in biologic development, management and manufacturing, I have a chance to grow with the company.

Great Team
Executive Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Allendale, NJJuly 10, 2018
If it were not for the fact that Lonza Inc. was relocating the office and making it an almost impossible commute everyday to the office I would not be in the business of looking for a new job. I enjoyed my time with Lonza and my co-workers.

Too much outsourcing
MANAGER,Consumer Engagement (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, TNApril 19, 2018
Of late, there's been too much outsourcing to save costs. This is causing lots of stress in the workforce. People feel insecure about the future in certain aspects of the business.

Merchandising Associate (Former Employee) –  GeorgiaApril 15, 2018
Good part time job if you don’t mind driving. Management last minute with wanting reports. Management doesn’t understand what part time employee means, they want you to be at their beckoning call but it’s a part time job. Most part timers have other employment so they can pay the bills!
Pros
Somewhat flexible
Cons
Heavy lifting at end of season

Fun place to work
Principal Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYApril 14, 2018
8:00 AM Attend Production Meeting and find out about what has run well and what need to be fixed. Give design support, help solving day-to day problem and spec out replacement parts if needed.

8:30 AM May need to go out the plant to do some troubleshooting.

9:00 AM Attend engineering meeting to review project status and schedule priority to insure we are working on the right thing.

9:30 AM Start working the list of plant work or plant project, May have to guide and help the work for junior and senior production engineer

1:00PM Take a tour of the plant and do some safety focus and encourage employees work safely. Communication and respect people are the keys.

2:00 PM Go back and finish up the work task for that day and prepare the work for the next day.

Consistent well organize makes the job easy to manage.

Friendly and kindness is the key of winning friend and influencing people.

Since we are always sold out, the business required extra overtime.

Easy to get stuff done
R&D Intern (Former Employee) –  Walkersville, MDApril 5, 2018
It was by and large fun to work at and exciting to watch experiments run and data recorded. The company made sure we were aware of all Standard Operating Procedures relevant to our jobs and even had an automated system to help keep track or our qualifications.

The co-workers were very friendly and it was easy to work with them on some tasks.
