Rather not say (Current Employee), Savannah GA – September 12, 2013
Pros: if you have a office job, you have it made
Cons: new mangement
If you have an office Job in IT, HR, Scientists, Accounting, EHS, Engineering or are in management then you have it made and will work minimal days and hours. However if you do not have a office job then you need to be in with this good ole boy click or you will work very long hours, have very low pay, and will have no advancement.

EHS Specialist (Former Employee), Wardhill, MA – June 25, 2013
Pros: great pay
Cons: too many to list!
I worked in EHS for almost a year and the culture is authoritarian and the employee morale is through the floor. Management is in inept and the HR manager is in bed with the General Manager. Management has serious ethical issues and not military friendly at all. Alfa Aesar was investigated by OSHA and the VA for violations in 2012. Applicants beware!
Former temp emplyee at the phaacuetical supply division in Conshocken
Temp prices operator (Former Employee), Conshocken pa – June 4, 2013
Pros: great co workers
Cons: managers and suppervisor
I worked for Johnson Matthey through a temp angency at there pharmaceutical supply division in Conshocken Pa for about 6 weeks.
I liked the job and what they were doing, and I was looking forward to staying there for a long time.
However it apparently was not to be in an instance I was called by the agency I worked through I was told i was no longer – more... needed When pushed as to a reason I was told That I was not picking it up quick enough.
After 5 weeks I was not given any formal training nor did I have much contact with the supervisor ( JJ ) who gave no if any moral or constructive support to me during the short time I was there.
I understand that I was just a temp which goes along with taking a position with an outside source But to not be given the tools or support to do the job was very disappointing to me. – less
If you don't know anyone who works there GOOD LUCK!!
Instrumentation technician (Former Employee), Savannah, GA – May 5, 2013
If you're related to or know someone who works there, you may have a chance. Incredibly low low pay for those who actually work and if you been with the company for 20 years. The electrical and instrumentation department is a joke and good luck having support from supervision as they only care about themselves and how they look.
Fast paced production facilities with great research teams
Process Control Engineer (Former Employee), Wayne, PA – February 24, 2013
Johnson Matthey has an extremely well developed management team. They helped guide me through my career choices and path. Since these are production facilities there were many days where you wouldn't know what you would be walking into. The production managers typically did a very good job of allocating resources and personnel to deal with any issues – more... that arose. I really enjoyed being able to take on my own projects and have the support of my colleagues. – less
Prototype Technician (Current Employee), Royston, Hertfordshire – December 30, 2012
Pros: free lunches and all protective clothing provided.
Cons: working in an environment with very little contact with the outside world during working hours
My typical day begins with calculating my daily task. Once this is complete i ensure that it tally's up with exactly what the clients require. I then manufacture the formulations and consult a wide range of management/ team leaders with any potential issues or issues that have developed. I work as a part of a team of around 10-15 co workers and also – more... use their knowledge and pass my knowledge to ensure daily team and personal targets are met. The hardest part of my job is to set my work up to able to me work smoothly throughout the day. The most enjoyable part is to see that what i have manufacture go all the way through to the customer without any problems and in quick time. – less
