    I worked at Accutest Laboratories full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Such a horrible place to work, manager made busy work for me to do so it looked like I had very low productivity. She was very young and immature. I had worked for previous company for 18 years until Accutest bought us out. The only pro I have is that I was laid off and went on to bigger and better things.

    Cons

    Bad management, place is like high school with certain clicks. Manager in my case slept her way to her position. Very unprofessional

    Advice to Management

    Replace them all

    I worked at Accutest Laboratories full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free bagels on pay day. Okay medical. Gain experience and run for the hills!

    Cons

    Poor pay compared to industry average. Abuses salaried employees 10-12hrs per day, no overtime pay and no recognition/acknowledgement. No career advancement/opportunity. Blames employees for upper-managment failures. Sets impractical expectations/goals. Does not give raises- on the rare chance they do its offensively minimal. High turnover and poor employee morale. Sinking ship with a penny wise pound foolish mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Shake up upper-managment. Treat and pay employees better.

    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
