    I worked at Johnson Matthey US full-time (more than 3 years)


    Great people to work with! Very much like one "big family" when you work there and even after leaving I still have contact with my former colleagues and they're great! I visit there occasionally and they're always very welcoming, almost like I never left!
    Great place to learn for me since I was afforded a lot of flexibility to grow in my own role.
    Healthcare benefits are superb!
    Wayne location is great, KOP mall near by and Valley Forge.
    Compensation and Bonus package is pretty good.
    When promotion are done, 99% of the time they are for people that deserve it and it makes you feel like management really does recognize great work.


    Promotions are hard to come by, but they do exist.
    Vacation/Sick leave for US employees is not that great.
    Some union workers don't care about the job that much and make sloppy mistakes which make it harder for you to do your work. Also costs the company money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    JM was a great place to work. I was lucky to have a great boss and great colleagues that I learned a lot from. I can definitely say that my experience here has allowed me to grow in my career tremendously. Keep those great people you have and especially the good managers by rewarding and recognizing them fairly. Good luck JMers!!
