Good company with good benefits, culture, and values
Specialist Quality Assurance (Current Employee), West Greenwich, RIAugust 3, 2014
Pros: values, commitment, people
Cons: healthcare changes over the years (less coverage, more money out of pocket)
My job is in Quality Assurance and I support a large scale, 24/7 manufacturing facility with 5 shifts of peers. At any one time, we can have upwards of 22 lots running at the same time, and up to 4 products. I work a 12 hour day, and spend approximately 75-80% of my time on the floor, reviewing documents, operations, and supporting nonconformance investigations. – more... I started in this industry at this plant 14 years ago, and have basically been educated and grown with this company, learning everything I know about biotech here. My co-workers and peers are awesome, a truly dedicated group of people who have a real passion for what they do and doing it right. They all make this place what it is today. – less
