    I worked at Accutest Laboratories full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Experience using analytical methods and equipment

    Cons

    Management wouldn't let employees talk to each other throughout the work day. If employees were caught talking or laughing too much, they put you on opposite sides of the room as if it were a classroom for kids. Low Pay so i hope you don't have student loans.

    Advice to Management

    If you want employees to stick around, you can't have them sit quietly to themselves all day, everyday.

    Pros

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Salary is horrible. Working condition.....Horrible! People are allowed to pretty much do what ever they want. Night shift has no supervision so all mistakes and extra work fall on daytime shift. People are allowed to call out as much as they want, show up late if they want. There are no repercussions for bad behavior and no rewards for good work ethics!!

    Advice to Management

    Just give up

    Pros

    The experience is great for a resume. My co-workers are great and my boss is extremely flexible with hours and work scheduling

    Cons

    The pay is awful. I could honestly probably make more money waiting tables or tending a bar on the weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more money if you want them to stay in the company. The turnover rate is exceptionally high.

    I worked at Accutest Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    A paycheck/the ability to pay some of your bills. Free food occasionally. A lot of duties that will seem impressive on your resume, and get you a better job.

    Cons

    Pay is under market value but you're expected to do the work of multiple people. Managers don't communicate well, employees are in a bad mood most of the time, and data/reports are always late.
    I'm not sure how this company still has customers.

    Advice to Management

    SGS needs to replace most of the Accutest managers and talk to people on the bottom rungs when they're visiting the labs. If you only meet with upper management nothing will change.

    Pros

    It's a job. Five word minimum for pros.

    Cons

    Nothing is ever management's fault. Blame always placed on analyst.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be stubborn. Admit you made a mistake instead of deflecting the blame.
