Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Concord Township, OH
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Concord Township, OH

Pros

Some of the employees are paid better than industry standard

Cons

Pay inequity for new employees, skeletal staff due to recent RIFs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

open your eyes and invest in the business, re-evaluate wages so there aren't as many discrepancies within pay grades, listen to experienced staff and quit looking outside for advice, live in the future not in the past...stop maintaining the old ways or operating...it didn't work.

    Former Employee - Principal Scientist  in  Cleveland, OH
    Former Employee - Principal Scientist in Cleveland, OH

    Pros

    Considering what I know now, the pay and benefits were actually semi-on-par with other similar companies. They did low ball the employees on a 401 K match and dental coverage at least at the time of my working there, became non-existent. Most of the non-management employees were good hard working people. The place is full of competent scientist who are diligent about their work. Unfortunately, the company has no means or apparent desire to retain talented scientist. Most of these kinds of people, at the first opportunity, leave for much greener pastures.

    Cons

    The management at this place kill any joy that may be found. In my 22 years of being a Ph.D. scientist, I have worked in at least 8 different locations. The level of selfishness and outright lack of empathy for lower level employees was second to none. When times get a little rough and contracts are not abundant - these guys can think of no other solution to stem the tide other than whacking people off of the payroll. As your unemployed and your wife and kids are eating saltines for dinner, you can bet that their end of year bonuses and management perks will not be effected. Absolutely abhorrent, dead souled people, that I hope to never meet again. Lastly, forget about raises...unless your in management of course.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pray that there is no God in heaven. Because if there is, I'd hate to be about 80% of you.

    Pros

    Nice working people, challenging projects, learned and practiced a lot!

    Cons

    Poor and greedy management. Promotions based on if your supervisor likes you. Most hard working and proficient employees have been squeezed out of company. Management just close eyes and made up their plans. Never tried seriously to listen to people. Could not figure out a clue except lay-offs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen to your people who are still there.
