I have been working at Nelson Labs full-time (More than a year)
Really great people to work with. Very knowledgeable and professional. The president Jeff Nelson is a genuinely good person who really cares about each person.
They pay at the analyst level is probably on par with industry. Unfortunately the further you rise in ranks within the company the pay becomes less and less competitive. The training we receive is excellent and that creates a "Player Farm" from which other large medical device manufacturers draw from. Essentially the thought is "Nelson employees are great, but they are underpaid, we can poach them easily by throwing more money at them and get a fantastic employee". As you visit medical device manufacturers in the area, this becomes very apparent as they are peppered with former Nelson employees who are thriving! The issue that this causes within Nelson is that the company spends a great deal of time and energy to get an employee up to a fully competent level then they are quickly lost. We had one employee who was working for 16.00 an hour (had a BS in the scientific field as many of us do) and after less than a year found an entry level engineering job which payed roughly 60,000 per year which was roughly a 28,000 dollar raise! Its not secret that people come here for lab experience, or regulatory experience, put in a few years then go for a real grown up job somewhere that values them monetarily.
I applied online. I interviewed at Nelson Labs (Salt Lake City, UT) in August 2017.
I was contacted shortly after submitting my resume online, and asked to come to a hiring event. I attended the even which consisted of a panel interview and a short, simple lab assessment. Immediately after the interview I was drug tested, and told I would need to complete a background check. I was e-mailed by one of their HR saying that I would be contacted later then next week on the next steps in the process. I was never contacted, so I reached out by e-mail asking if there was anything else needed from me. Never heard back, so I called and was directed to a voicemail, where I left a message asking if there was an update on the interview process. Once again, I never got a reply. After several weeks of waiting I gave up and moved on. Very disappointed in their HR department, they should know better.
