Another vicitim of the Recession, bad management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Eau Claire, WI

ProsGreat salary, benefits, personal improvement classes offered when I worked there.

ConsMany layoffs, hiring of temp workers that were unprofessional/ used foul language on occasion when I worked there.

Private cafeteria closed and hot water machine was removed. Had to walk to cafeteria area to get coffee.

Advice to Senior ManagementDump or sell the bio division and concentrate on gaining market share.

The factory in Thailand never should have been built on a flood prone area, would have been better to keep the assembly jobs in the U.S so they could purchase the hard drives we helped make...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
