Interesting work and innovative company
Project Assistant and R&D Admin (Former Employee) –  Lexington, MA20 June 2017

Audit preparation was demanding but interesting work

A sense of participation in R & D achievements was very enjoyable

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.
