SGS Employee Review

Ok place to get your foot in the door

Wage is competitive in some departments. Bouncing between overly busy days where you’re pushed to the limit and stressed, to days where there is no work. Upper management pushes for changes that do not make sense and benefit no one but themselves, work life balance is usually terrible although you get weekends off. Lab supervisors and chemists are all great people which is a plus, but upper management ruins a lot of good things.

Fast paced, processing many samples

Daily calibrations were done usually in the morning as well as the media preparation. While the media is being prepared, loading of the autoclave and ensuring all the checks were done before starting it was done. Logging of samples is usually done until sufficient samples are stocked up to be processed. Then processing and sampling was done once samples received their LIMS numbers. Sampling was done based on dilutions and customer specifications. After microbiological analysis was done sample was logged into LIMS and stored for proper holding time protocols. Big company, very clean, monthly meetings regarding safety and other concerns of employees and customers. Good, supportive management to report to.

Pros

clean, quiet, big company

Cons

pot holes in parking lot
