Medical cleanroom manufacturing (Current Employee) – Flagstaff, AZ – June 14, 2018
I am still a temporary employee but it sounds great to become an associate. It feels like they have better opportunities. I feel like they are singling out temp services yet we provide the same service as associates.
Quality Control Tester (Former Employee) – Arizona – June 6, 2018
In the 3 years I worked there things slowly got worse for the employees that do the manual labor. No promotion, lack of communication, no direct leadership. The people most upset with the changes are the ones who do the manual labor, leadership and office dwellers have free paid lunches, flexible schedules, and are compensated due to projects they focus on not helping promote the work force or an individual.
IT Associate (Former Employee) – Newark, DE – May 25, 2018
There is a reason that this company was part of the top 100 companies to work for for many years. They were founded under the belief that associates can be your greatest resources if given the freedom and opportunities to contribute and use their strengths in ways to better the company. This was practiced for well over 50 years and it was truly a great place to work. The culture is changing now though and their core values are not the same as they were before. This is really seen in the IT community which is very sad. If you align yourself with one of their many businesses you will love your time there and the people you are able to work with and learn from.
freedom and opportunities are there if you work for one of the divisions
culture is changing (especially within the IT field)
It was a fast pace environment. Which was a good thing you stay busy. That's what i liked. We did team building lessons which was really cool because it gave us the chance to work with others that we may not work with everyday.
Medical Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) – Flagstaff, AZ – May 17, 2018
A good place to learn manufacturing skills and the ins and outs of the Culture of the company. They do spend a lot of time trying to hide how much everyone gets paid and when they get raises if they do.
Good place to work
short breaks, treated like child, little responsiblity
Challenging work in an environment where people are respected
Plant Leader, Wall NJ - Medical Division (Former Employee) – Newark, DE – May 16, 2018
Very family friendly atmosphere. Creativity is encouraged. The company promotes the concept of "leaders" rather than "managers". Leaders have followership, managers do not. It was sometimes difficult to balance the urgency of having others complete a task with the concept of work-life balance.
Excellent benefits and stock ownership plan
The need to increase sales and profits is adversely impacting the work culture.
Process Development and Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) – Elkton, MD – May 15, 2018
Gore focuses on deep understanding of the materials they manipulate into uniquely engineered forms to optimize the desired properties in final applications. I've learned process modeling, materials characterization, and statistical process control.. The work culture is heavily reliant on self management such that you prioritize your time to deliver on the projects you're committed to. This allows amazing flexibility for to juggle work-life obligations. The hardest part of working at Gore is navigating somewhat ambiguous expectations and deliverables with a lattice management structure and loosely defined procedures. However this enables customization depending on the specific situation and desired outcomes.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Flagstaff, AZ – May 8, 2018
A very detailed oriented job that cultures team work and innovation. A company that definitely cares about their employees and will do whatever it takes to make sure that the working environment is not stressful so that they can get the best out of their employees.
Formerly a great place to work (Now on a downward turn for the worse!
Current employee (Quality Assurance) (Current Employee) – Elkton Heights, MD – April 25, 2018
The CEO and top and Middle Management staff are incompetent and make important decisions on the company direction that are just BAD / poor decisions based on a. Lack of structured facts and reasoning.. if the trend is recurring, Gore will make a great acquisition by one of its competitors. Being Number 2 means that all the Rest are Number 1, second best!
Low pay, incompetent managers and top management, salary is very low - public school teachers make more money! Company is on the downward turn.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Avondale, PA – April 16, 2018
