Poor Fit
Software Engineering Tech 1 (Former Employee), Buffalo, NYDecember 21, 2013
Pros: not being unemployed...
Cons: poor communication...
Eight to Five, limited access due to a hosted configuration. Management sold me on some points which did not transpire.
In a department of more than 45, there was no interaction at all, not even staff meetings. The most challenging group of people I have ever worked with in my career. The most enjoyable part of the day was lunch and leaving.

Very happy place to work with good mentoring programs
Process Engineer Co-op (Former Employee), Tonawonda, NYDecember 11, 2013
Pros: work environment
Cons: in some positions there was a lot of travel
Work on project either for troubleshooting or new plant product.

How to determine efficiency of equipment and how they impacted the process and yield.

My co-workers were amazing, I loved them and if the location was different I would have stayed.

The location was very far my family which is why I chose to leave.

The work environment was wonderful.

Productive workplace
Held Revenue Associate (Former Employee), Opelousas, LADecember 9, 2013
Pros: worked close to home and worked with one of my best friends
Cons: low pay, got laid off due to company being bought out
A typical day at work would consist of calling patients and ins companys, working in excel spread sheet.
Management was always there to help.
Co-workers all got along
Hardest part of the job was calling patients and trying to make them understand what we needed in order to bill the ins company.
The most enjoyable part of my job was working with one – more... of my closest friend. – less

Productive and professional work place with option for advancement
cylinder processor/production/customer service (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZDecember 5, 2013
Pros: management was willing to listen, team work, tools for the job were provided, concerns were met and taken care and resolved
A typical workday began with a daily safety meeting consisting from any mistakes made the day before and a plan to fix them. Also a stategized plan for the days job requirements. I learned how to work well with others and bring out the best job orriented attitude in co workers to effectively get the job done in a timely manner. The co-workers also believed – more... in helping one another and emplementing the concept of team work. The managent was professional and believed in treating all employees equally and fair and listened to any employess concern. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with co-workers and supervisors that all had the same agenda in mind. Which was working together to get the job completed and a safe and timely manner. – less

Great Company....lousy employees
Insurance Specialist/ Billing Clerk (Former Employee), Murray, UTNovember 22, 2013
Pros: wonderful potlucks and get togethers for employees...great benefits and pay
Cons: harsh environment
My experience was that my Supervisor had just been promoted to her position and was trying to learn her new responsibilites. She had no time to train me and I was therefore pushed off on a "temp" who had been w/the company for a while, but she did not want to dedicate the time it would really take to walk a new person through the intricate details of – more... the job. it would've caused her to get behind in her work, so I was taught a little then left swinging in the wind when the boss would ask me about something she thought I should know and it would be something I hadn't been taught or ever mentioned to me. The knowledge one needed of Medicare criteria alone was staggering. The environment was downright hostile! I was overwhelmed from week one and tried to muddle my way through for 7 months then finally quit! – less

Think Twice about this Company
Customer Service Technician (Former Employee), Keasbey, NJNovember 6, 2013
Pros: a paycheck if you call that
Cons: management
Management is all bobble-heads, and does not support you on matters, and all of them are bean counters that's the bottom line for them and make cuts after cuts till they have you call them for every little thing and then if you need something to complete a job they tell you NO! so tell me how are you to work under these conditions, Plus they think you – more... should not have a life after work, your on call 24/7 and they treat you just like number and not a person. After 37 years, there is life after Praxair. If I had to do it all over again, I think I would have taken a different job – less

High pace, very stressfull, low reward workplace
Project Engineer (Former Employee), PTC Tonawanda, NYOctober 18, 2013
Pros: for me few ... travel, decent pay, not always in line with industry
Cons: benefits need to be improved, extremely stressful, little or no reward, weak managers (not all, but the ones i encountered), poor technical training
Great place to work, if you love high stress work place, with little or no praise for achievements.

Company used to have great benefits, slowly eroding away.

Lot of travel, company treats employees as though they are replaceable.

Excellent safety record and training. This is done well. If your looking for technical training, not the place. Most training, – more... in my experience, was done as a cover their butt; quickly, then sign off on it.

They tend to take their best engineers and make them managers, great engineers do not always make great managers. I worked for some of the weakest managers in my career here.

I would not work here again. – less

Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee), Waco, TXOctober 4, 2013
Pros: having online access to training, time sheet and paystub
Cons: temperture was very cold. there was one bathroom.
Typically I insured the comfort and proper use of BiPAP and CPAP machines along with clerical duties.
I learned a great deal about the function of the equipment.
Management was approachable.
My coworkers and I made a good team.
The hardest part of the job was getting to all of the home visits when they were far from the office.
The most enjoyable part – more... was fitting the BiPAP and CPAP mask. – less

Job where I learned the most
Reimbursement Associate (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXSeptember 5, 2013
Pros: room to advance, benefits
Cons: some rules seemed a bit ridiculous for an office environment
Advancement was slow but there was room to grow. I worked closely with Medicare on the denied claims for DME equipment. It was very fulfilling when I worked to find out the reason for a denial, and then got the correct information to submit the claim and receive payment.

Productive workplace but not keen on safety.
Lead Chemist (Current Employee), Geismar, LAAugust 28, 2013
Pros: free to do whatever you need.
Cons: free to do whatever you need.
Drama filled working with chemists usually started by one in particular. The management is horrible. Productivity is high. Safety is low. Compensation is low.
