    So far, so good, but poorly organized.

    I have been working at Lonza full-time

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment, 401k matching, generous vacation policy. You'll find many employees who have been with the company for 10+ years. There's even a yearly bonus program based on pre-determined (and publicized) metrics.

    Cons

    Pretty disorganized, not very transparent, paperwork is required even for the most mundane tasks, frequent miscommunication among different departments. Additionally, it seems like every year there's some company initiative that seems to fall by the way side.

    And I almost forgot, they have a TERRIBLE weather policy. The site just about never closes (literally like 2 times in the last 5 years) so if an employee can't make it in, they have to waste a vacation day.

    Interview Questions
    • Invited to participate in face to face interviews on site with four individuals. Interview questions were behavioral based so do your homework. Unexpected questions were asked by the HR person. The questions were around my high school days which was years ago. Was asked how I was described by my classmates. Who remembers and how accurately does that describe me today???? Also asked how my college expenses were paid for… how is that job related or any of their business??? Do you want to know my monthly mortgage payment also????   Answer Question
