Anonymous (Current Employee) – Bedford, MA – 13 November 2017
Workdays are packed with meetings and not enough time to complete assigned tasks. Typical work day is ~10 hrs. Very focused on project schedules and timelines but not enough resources to accomplish the work required. Micromanagement is very common.
Clinical Applications Representative (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – 27 October 2017
Excellent corporate culture, fantastic benefits. Long hours and lots of travel for field based employees. Management and field based employees are going through a lot of changes right now due to recent acquisitions. Nevertheless, with change comes opportunity for growth. Longevity of employees is unparalleled in the industry.

Hemostasis Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – 2 September 2017
I enjoyed my time working at Instrumentation Laboratory. I spent many hours training on multiple instrument platforms and learned alot about hemostasis. I felt my time there was productive but I missed bench work.
Great group of people in the Finance department - low turn over.

Production Operator II (Current Employee) – New York, NY – 25 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.
Productive, fast learner and adapt quick to my environment
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Orangeburg, NY – 18 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.

Totally self dependent work culture. Learned development of electronics hardware part of medical equipment, which includes micro controller programming, PCB design, electronic circuit design, etc. Co-workers are supportive and involved in most of the critical section of the development phase. Hardest part of the job was the identification process for '' the problem in existing devices ". I was able to interface hardware module with PC and showed the result in it.
endless freedom in doing experiment
low salary, time lag in each administrative process
