    Great place for EHS experience

    Mar 19, 2022 - EHS Specialist in Carlsbad, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good safety culture and respect for the EHS department from other teams. They value what we do and try their best to collaborate and make safety a priority. Lots to learn and areas (programs) to improve. Can be challenging work, but I really enjoyed my team and we worked very well together because of the constant support and tight relationships. Being in the biotech industry is a great opportunity to develop new skills in EHS that can translate in other fields. As a Specialist you will be doing technical tasks as well as assignments that aren't really in your scope, but it's sometimes a nice break from the desk. Smaller company meant easier and faster ways to get things done, not much red rape.

    Cons

    The pay isn't the worst, but also was well below my level of experience. Considering how far I had to commute also made it less desirable. You'll work with a variety of different backgrounds and personalities and it won't always be pleasant because of seniority and the uneducated. I outgrew the position quite fast because it was a lateral move from my previous position and there was nowhere to go up in promotion and the pay increase would not be substantial even if they created a position.

    Pros

    Lots of OT, free sodas, offered some incentive bonuses, go the chance to meet a few great people, can wear sweats in production, challenging, learned new skills, good for temp income, ok benefits,

    Cons

    Consumables sub-department was a sweat shop, you’re an asset meaning once you are not needed they set you aside, disorganized, super toxic culture, drama from lower workers to top management, unprofessional, people acted like high schoolers specially in production, uneven workloads in different departments, favoritism, horrible management overall even thought there a couple good leaders, no teamwork, it’s all about profits no matter what.

    Horrid management, way underqualified and terrible leaders/trainers.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    pay is decent, easy task.

    Cons

    training will happen from your co-workers who have been there a month and many don't know English. The orientation happened after the training that is horribly backwards. There was reverse discrimination for white people. The work force is almost entirerly Phillipino and Asian and they are territorial and rude to new people. Very underqualified applicants, I had way more experience and education. it was a joke. work isn't taken seriously, rules aren't abided by like closing of doors one at a time in order to keep temperatures regulated.
