If your friends with the Operations manager you have it made. Cliques and friends club galore at this place. Only keep/hire like minded folks. If you disagree, then you are an outsider.

Short term Assignment

I was on Short term assignment and assist them through an Acquisition. The staff was great and very helpful if you needed assistance. It was very laid-back and seemed to have flexible hours as well.

it is okay company to work for but not for too long.

it needs to improve profit and give a bigger shear to employee. The culture in the company need to be improved. The benefit needs improvement too. There are too much micro management taking place.

Good company to consult for.

I worked on a consulting assignment for them for four months. The role and objectives of the assignment were clear. I completed the assignment on time and left on good terms with the company. Lots of good people there.


Clear assignment and time frame.

Great people but not much possibility to perform

Good place to work. Shift 6-14, with lunch break. Great people and team, very helpful co-workers. Up to area and people, management, some of part of the job have been learned more myself, part of them with great help. The hardest part of the job is long time seating job and long time working with microscop what affecting eyes. Not much possibility to learn something more at the moment and perform myself, not much variety different things to learn and do.
