Production, jokes, laughter
Production Operator II (Current Employee) –  New York, NY25 May 2017
A work day work mainly consist on production equipment running. We would joke around to make the day pass. Culture is good for the most part but there are some individuals that change the atmosphere in the room. Those individual are two faced, lazy, rather sit back and let others do the job. Supervisors do not show appreciation for workers. There is zero compensation for job being done. I thought the goal was to strive to do better. The more i want to learn the more I'm told later. There is no one to go to. HR goes with management before anything.
Pros
benefits
Cons
management, hr, no room to grow

Productive, fast learner and adapt quick to my environment
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Orangeburg, NY18 October 2016
Everyday is pretty much the same thing, there's no growth in this job really, the managers are pretty decent but can come down on you when a project is past due. The most challenging part of the job is to work with certain people sometimes due to their pace and lack of drive. However the best time is always lunch and after the day goes by fast and there's a boost in energy and production.

Interesting and daunting
Junior Research Fellow (Former Employee) –  Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala8 June 2016

Pros
endless freedom in doing experiment

low salary, time lag in each administrative process

Nice facility, health & 401k benefits
QA Specialist (Former Employee) –  Bedford, MA6 June 2015
Some departments are meant as overhead and treated as such, so you need someone who can build teams and make you feel as valuable contributor.

Selection process for management positions leaves something to wish for. You can contribute majority of departments performance and be paid $5-7/hr less than the 'next guy'.

Otherwise excellent place to master your skills and experience on best tools you can imagine.
Pros
Great to build experience
Cons
No career advancements

excellent culture to get experience
Bio- Medical Engineer, Clinical Applicant (Former Employee) –  Srinagar, JK5 April 2015
A typical day during extrem condition when patient care and facilities are conflicting between personal intersets..you have to chose a best possible way between them..

To chose an option in best possible way so that work has to executed in a proffessional manner....

In any organisation management is a back bone to see the things in different way according to conditions and work culture..so that ultimate goals has to be achived for not only benificial to organisation but for subordinates as well ....

Excellent friendly atmosphere helpful and cooperative as well...

To improve in the healthcare system ,when professionals behave like unprofessional....

To learn and share knowledge is the most enjoyable part of job...

Nothing but chaos
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Orangeburg26 March 2015
No real management at all. Supervisors have no idea what is going on, only plan for the here and now no vision for tomorrow. Equipment is old and has not been taken care of in years. No teamwork or training, every man for himself. Money was great but not worth it. Health benefits were expensive 401K match is good.
Pros
401K, good hourly pay.
Cons
Everything else.

Great 401K, Management in flux
Manager (Former Employee) –  Bedford, MA16 March 2015
Company overall is a good place to work, but experiencing growing pains. Management is in flux. Top heavy in some departments. Having an impact on process and procedures. As a result the company is becoming less personal and less like a family than it was just a few short years ago. Many employees are starting to retire after long careers at IL, but new employees can't count on that kind of loyalty from the company any more. Bottom line and head count focused.

Senior Quality Control Analyst (Former Employee) –  Lexington, MA13 February 2015
They provided interesting work in an environment where my supervisors appreciated what I did. I was able to continue developing my skills with in house training, outsourced retreats for training, and they compensated for online courses I completed.

They had nice company events and the 401K was great with 8% matching. If I did not leave for more education I would still be there.
