I have been working at EMSL Analytical full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

flexible schedules
vacation time accrues quickly after the first year

Cons

employees are not well compensated
benefits, especailly healthcare, are a joke due to the high premiums
no paid sick days
management is arrogant and out of touch with the rank and file workers
emphasis is strongly placed on production, instead of quality
raises are miniscule, usually 2% even for the outstanding employess
cameras are used to track employees
atmosphere of distrust exists
management makes decisions in a void, without considering the impact

Advice to Management

get to know your employees. have meetings where open communication takes place, along with sharing of ideas and suggestions. acknowledge employees accomplishments, and give kudos to those employees (there are many) who go over and above. conduct exit interviews, to try to get a handle on why so many employees leave, and why the ones that remain are not happy working there. LISTEN and then address the issues. I do not know one employee who will speak highly of the company, which is sad. EMSL could be a good company.

    I have been working at EMSL Analytical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Work schedule
    Friends I work with
    Half days on Christmas and new years eve
    Free lunches on some holidays

    Cons

    I've been here for a while now and all I can say while you get to know what the company is, you want to leave ASAP. "Regular Employees, like me" are treated like dirt, they will make you feel that they own you. They don’t value the employees at all… NO token of appreciation for hard-work.

    You can't grow in this company unless you are a family member.
    Managers loves to make you expect for something that will never happen.. for example: raise or promotion.

    Just an advice.. If you’re not in a hurry for a job.. Stay away from this company…
    If you really need a job….. Go for it, be prepared for a very high healthcare payments (biggest deduction on my salary, ouch), make sure to read the non-compete very well! you have been warned! Current employees will agree on this review

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees well, show them appreciation, be honest

    I have been working at EMSL Analytical full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you work hard and have a good manager, you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    Upper management will not support you. There are companies out there who appreciate and reward their employees for their hard work and dedication. This company is not one of them. There are companies out there who support their employees in their times of need. This company is not one of them. Labs are understaffed, and equipment breaks constantly. The benefits are terrible. Do not work here.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Stop buying labs for sale and start taking care of the ones you already own.
