    Former Employee - Production in Devon, PA

    Pros

    Union, decent pay and lots of overtime when it is busy

    Cons

    a little clicky. Because it is a union everything is based on seniority and not on work ethic. This means that some employees do not pull their weight

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management can be a oblivious to what is going on sometimes. Need better lines of communication

    Pros

    International company which is on the lean side as far as number of employees. This allows individuals to advance as well as learn multiple aspects of the company. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    People tend to stay a long time at Johnson Matthey so new ideas are sometimes overlooked or you need multiple players to get buy in. Salary compensation is on the low side compared to similar companies depending on where you live.

    Former Employee - Summer Intern  in  Downingtown, PA
    Former Employee - Summer Intern in Downingtown, PA

    Pros

    small manufacturing center - not a large facility but it does a lot of work. automotive/glass enamels.
    Friendly coworkers - nice guys, helpful.
     family atmosphere - close nit because of its size.

    Cons

    management can be stingy and dishonest - they advertised a position as pay but tried to make it an unpaid internship.
    Feels like they cut as many corners as possible.

    Would not recommend as a summer internship unless location matters or as a last resort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up.

    Pros

    Everyone was polite and easy to work with. My bosses were extremely knowledgeable and always willing to explain when the situation was needed. The flexible hours were helpful when trying to work around doctors appointments.

    Cons

    Not that much room for movement within the process development department. There is a lot of movement among the engineers.
