SGS Employee Review

Good place to get laboratory experience

Basically a place to get a few years of laboratory experience and move on. Very high turnover rate with employees. Management is alright and tolerable

Cons

Shift work, 6 am start times

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.

Can be a good starting place

SGS is a good starting block for those trying to get into the laboratory or environmental field. If your in the Geochemistry building most supervisors are good and will always try and help. Work life balance is pretty good.The pay is not the best but the benifts are good. The job itself is good, stress free and you learn lots, but SGS is still a global company there to make money.I don't regret my time spent there. They also try and provide company lunches or bbqs frequently:)

Pros

Benifts, co-workers, supervisors, Overtime if you want, extra training if wanted

Cons

pay
