    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Element Materials Technology full-time

    Pros

    It's a very standard manufacturing/test & evaluation kind of job. M-F, some Saturdays, not a lot of surprises (which is a good thing).

    Cons

    Like any other line manufacturing or test & evaluation type company, work comes in ebbs and flows. You'll find a lot of people who have been with the company a decade, and a lot who have been there a year or less, with not much in between. But every problem I've seen is the same as anywhere else in the industry.

    I have been working at Element Materials Technology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They KNOW they underpay and treat their employees like 2nd class people.

    Cons

    Turn over rate is above 30%, which means you are constantly training new hires. The company cares more about profits then their employees. Mandatory overtime, makes it hard to maintain a work life balance. They are willing to move you into new positions but without title changes or compensation.
