They are closing this facility and making people work mandatory overtime and at the end your reward is you lose your job.

Management egos will be their downfall
Sales (Current Employee) –  NoneApril 20, 2013
Corporate management will be the downfall of Angiotech. The facilities are great places to work, with great people, but management made numerous bad financial decisions which led to bankruptcy, and then forced them to sell their most profitable product line to get themselves out of debt. Very little forward thinking in remaining product lines.
Pros
great people
Cons
lack of corporate management, bad insurance, poor innovation

A good place to work
Grinding (Current Employee) –  Gainesville, FLAugust 8, 2012
The typical day at work is able to follow the job outline and to get along with your employees for 10 hours. I have learned to solve problems different types of problems everyday. New different problems. The hardest part of the job is to getting the products out on time. The most enjoyable is that higher up employees would give us award for doing good like pizza.
Pros
free lunches and breakfast
Cons
short breaks and long hours
