I have been working at Lonza Biologics full-time
- Lonza is a leader in cell therapy
- Diverse group
- Coworkers are extremely nice
- Company mission is clear
- Pay is very low for industry
- High turnover
- Many employees do not possess the ability to solve problems thus heavy reliance on managers
Advice to Management
There is so much potential for the company. Invest more resources/efforts in hiring talent
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Lonza Biologics (Portsmouth, NH) in October 2015.
Phase I is Phone interview with Hiring Manager lasting lasting 30 minutes to an hour; All technical questions.
Phase II is face to face interview panel interview with 4-5 prospective team members, all sitting across from you and firing hard ball questions at you to evaluate your soft skills (Emotional Intelligence and Resilience because you will need it).people are the most challenging to deal with so you need a tremendous amount of people skills to make it
It took 2 weeks of back and forth with the HR manager to agree on a mutually acceptable offer. I has paid at the 95th percentile of my salary range.
