Co-op Engineer (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – July 31, 2018
As entry level engineer many learning opportunities were afforded to familiarize with complex scientific concepts central to the work done at the company. work life balance in small college town was excellent.
Manager/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – August 9, 2018
Management was very demanding and reluctant to provide full resources to complete projects within the timeframe they wanted them accomplished. Many good scientists work there but much of their work is mico-managed and priorities are in constant flux. Decisions are more about the bottom line and not about product safety or following the so called credo values. It was JnJ when I was there, and I doubt it will improve under the new owners, in fact I would expect things to deteriorate more.
Great place to work when it was a Johnson&Johnson Company
GMP Consultant (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – January 17, 2018
Great place to work when it was a Johnson & Johnson Company. I have no knowledge of the new owners. The new owners are a venture capitalists company so I assume their business focus is more on the dollars and less on the reputation. Not sure what that means for the quality department as that is one that does not contribute money to the bottom line.
Poor management, low pay, unfair pay, work too hard for pay, employees treated poorly, management brings their kids to work into an unsafe environment, no guarding on moving parts of machinery, favoritism
Senior Chemical Operator (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – October 5, 2017
The stupervisors have no clue on the process they rely on the seasoned operators with the experience to teach them the processes the room for growth potential is like having a blind fold on... since leaving the JNJ family the company Noramco has been going down hill with the major lay offs of experience chemical operators...now most of the associate operations are under 5 years experience...
Line Operator (Former Employee) – Carrollton, OH – August 18, 2017
I enjoyed working at noramco the only reason I left was because of my school schedule at the time. Operating the machines take some getting used to as the machines were a little finicky but once I got the hang of it it became second nature.
Chemical Manufacturing Operator (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – June 23, 2017
The company was under Johnson & Johnson at one point and later sold, but the culture J&J will never change. With the hard work and dedication to it customer and stock broker. Plus we work a 12 hour shift with 7 days off a month.Know the company is on it own moving to have it on clear vision.
Technician (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – May 9, 2017
Management will wow you with the interview, tell you that you matter and they are flexible....none of the above is true. First week management made it very stressful and was very disrespectful. If you are sick, need a day off or have an emergency expect to put your job at jeopardy. There only concern is the end product and not the people. Benefits and pay is not worth it for long hours, and the chance to lose your job if you need any type of compassion. Kindness and understanding is free; I don't understand creating product to just treat your employees like garbage. Do not be pulled in by the initial interview. Athens, Georgia's facility is full of rude, back stabbing, and awful people.
Lead Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE – April 6, 2017
Company has been sold to an investment firm. Work culture, work/family balance and job security are in a negative state. Good people work here and are being treated unfairly as well as the physical site.
Awesome work, providing help to those in need of their pain management medications!
Chemical Operator/ Material handler (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE – December 12, 2016
This company runs 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, with some holiday exceptions. Work is delegated in regards to the Business needs and Market demands via customers. I've learned how to work independently and safely, always keeping in mind that we are providing help to people who are in need of medicine; therefore the quality of work and level of attainment of right the first time, keep me striving to do better every day! Management has a style that could sometimes seem out dated, but effective. I work alongside of some great individuals, and ultimately a team that aims to please. On some given days work could prove itself to be hard, only because of the demand and business needs, in essence seeming impossible to obtain the desired amount requested. Overall what makes this such an enjoyable job, is when you do meet that seemingly impossible fete and not only are you happy, but the customers are satisfied which also pleases the Company; but holds us to the standard of its Credo!
Good paying job with great coworkers. Management stinks.
Chemical Operator (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – September 2, 2016
Good job to have until the schedule falls behind. Management cares only about bottom line and moving themselves up the ladder. They tend to try to rush you to get the current job done so they can start the next job. If you make any mistakes may cost you your job. They preach that taking responsibility for your mistakes and your integrity is the most important thing. But it really doesnt matter if you make a mistake. Excellent culture amongst coworkers. Long hours and good pay.
this was a very fast place to work.production was very fast with a short time for shiping orders. maintenance was very stressful,because of all the very old equipment to keep operating. call ins were constant because we had no lead time.for instance, we would get orders on monday and be scheduled to ship the next day or the day after.
