      Very poor mgmt, poor pay, working in extreme environments (hot or cold), extremely poor in safety (chemicals), and very political.

      "Excellent coworkers and terrible management"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at Gelest

        Pros

        The other employees are dedicated to their jobs and really fun to worth with. Always something interesting happening on and off the job.

        Cons

        The company is not run well. There are a lot of secrets kept and much deception to the employees. They work their employees too hard. It's obvious management thinks the employees are expendable.
