    Cons

    Due to the nature of working at AMRESCO how we experience and then, a lot of different chemicals unfortunately is out of our control if we have a chemical spill but we do the best that we can with what we have

    Advice to Management

    Management is the best that you can find on this side of heaven they are a great group of individuals that are very knowledgeable and they are very sensitive to the needs of the employees

    Pros

    Nice people and some who really want to help.

    Cons

    Company comments on these reviews don't address the problem. On training and development--job is open, true or false? 3rd time in less than a year, true or false? Replaced by another employee, true or false? Hr manager laid off, True or false? So why do you say this cant be discussed in a "public forum?" This is all well known. What are you trying to hide behind "confidential".

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and transparent about what is really going on.

    I have been working at AMRESCO full-time

    Pros

    Involved with cutting edge life science companies whose technologies can save lives by detecting illness long before traditional methods can.

    Cons

    This company has a long standing culture of blame, most of it directed towards areas not responsible, but areas that communicate issues. Promotes a culture of treating others as they want to be treated, of ethical and moral behavior, but puts in place a self regulated group to attack and harass others.

    Advice to Management

    Time to start living by the words that are communicated and not act directly counter to the words and principles directed to the organization. Saying one thing and doing the exact opposite does not build a sense of trust.

    I worked at AMRESCO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about my employment was the above average salary and the flexible hours they allowed me to work.

    Cons

    The main thing that bugged me about this place is that there are some people in positions that seem to have little to no clue what they are doing.

    Pros

    good resume builder. Nice co-workers

    Cons

    Supervisors and managers are unprofessional and gossip about others frequently. Supervisors do not come out to floor and check on progress or see what is needed. Not enough employees to do the jobs at hand. Overworked and paid well below average. Employees are treated poorly by supervisors and often get an "i dont know" answer when asking a question. This place is a stepping stone and not a career. Thanks for the experience to put on my resume.

    Advice to Management

    Very unprofessional environment. Don't forget about the little people, Employees are constantly looking for other jobs

    Stay far far away. The positive reviews are fake, written by a shill HR supe that doesn't have any HR experience.

    I have been working at AMRESCO full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's a great stepping stone for moving elsewhere. Many people have left and taken their talents elsewhere earning more money and getting promotions. The things the company works on for their customers are inspiring, but it's other people's work.

    Cons

    No process or procedural adherence, unqualified management, slogans and catchphrases substitute for actual leadership, 'Do as I say, not as I do' culture, lack of imagination or innovation, "leadership" refuses to benchmark SOPs, stagnant morale, low pay, cheap 401k

    Advice to Management

    Understand the differnece between leadership and management. Listen to your people that know what they're doing and stop acting like spoiled children

    Pros

    company grew in the last few years, then was bought by VWR and benefits, pay and atmosphere changed.

    Cons

    All the focus and money is being spent on Regulatory because of an FDA audit. So if you want a job in Quality or Regulatory you will be treated like a king. The president was former VP of Regulatory. There is an FDA letter under his watch, and he got promoted to president. Thats how things work around here.

    I have been working at AMRESCO (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company is growing and moving in the right direction. A leader in manufacturing and supplier of chemicals and reagents with high industry standards following ISO and FDA regulations. They have strong expectations and stringent procedures with attention to quality and details- customers and employees shouldn’t expect less from a company that manufacturers medical devices. I have been given a lot of trust and responsibility to do my job and have an amazing supervisor who is available for questions/comments and gives good solid feedback. I am comfortable going to her for guidance and/or confirmation. Since working here I have learned so much about quality manufacturing and see what a great work environment can be like. Staff received turkeys and thank you's for Thanksgiving - that’s a first in my career. The President/CEO meets all new staff at orientation – how often do you see that? Ideas for improvement are welcome but first learn the position and current procedures before suggesting change. Job opportunities are posted which allow for internal candidates to learn of and apply for promotions and transfers to other departments. HR and department managers take the time to get to know candidates with a personalized hiring process so that the best people are hired. I have seen people who weren’t selected for one position get referred and hired for another position. In a time when people are seeking employment, there are many opportunities here. Benefits are good and individual premiums reasonable compared to my last position. I am a temporary employee who would jump at the chance to work here full time. These are some really hard-working, good people who care about improving the human condition by providing a successful product to the customer. Great people and good science at AMRESCO.

    Cons

    Many opportunities here but currently no full time position in my field.

    Advice to Management

    My supervisor is professional, available and a good resource.
