    Growing company that keeps striving to be the best.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe best part of working here is that they allow for a great work-life balance. In addition, the benefits are great and they have an on-site workout facility with trainers. The company continues to look for ways to grow and bet their competitors.

    ConsChange seems to be the hardest thing for the company. However, leadership and other employees often realize there is a need for change, and address the situation. It just takes more time than most companies.

    I'm incredibly happy to be employed at Restek

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bellefonte, PA

    ProsHealth benefits are excellent, focus on wellness is outstanding and there is encouragement for growth in terms of career path. Culture is unique and most people are generally pleasant to work with. PTO

    ConsThere are growing pains associated with becoming a larger company (in both revenue and personnel). This stress is felt throughout the company, but for the most part there are changes being made constantly to try and reduce this stress and ensure the future of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease focus on core values and realize the importance of treating your employees as you would like to be treated. Don't cover-up mistakes or wait until a solution has been found to make the problem known. There are many people here at all levels who can help to solve problems.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood heath benefits at a fair price

    ConsToo top heavy, too many layers of management for the number of employees in product development and production.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    great place to get your wings

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) Bellefonte, PA

    Proslots of good people, will train and work with you to develop you personnely and professionally. managment trys to get employee issues right.

    Consno portion of the compenstation structure is up to par with leading companies. managment is more concerned with the status quo and thier own longevity then keeping a long term well working and stable company around.

    Great place to learn the ropes... watch out for changing whims of upper management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Bellefonte, PA

    ProsWork life balance is tremendous. The people in production, R&D and other support roles are great, they take pride in their work and do a great job. From the top down, there seems to be a genuine caring for the whole person.

    ConsThey still believe that capillary gas chromatography is a cutting edge technology and not the commodity product it has actually become for most labs. They continue to create great new columns, but for smaller and smaller niches in the marketplace.
    They cut loose their most promising new technology into a new company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of trying to create radical changes or reorganizations every year or two. Allow systems, teams, and people to actually get up and running in their new roles before tearing things apart again. Activity does not neccessarliy equate to effectiveness.
