    Pros

    Seriously none!!! This place is trash!!!!

    Cons

    Toxic environment If you are an hourly worker you have up to 7 points or you are terminated. Even if you are not a production worker and your are late by 1 second that’s half of a point. You must have... you know what type of privileges to get treated fair here or else don’t even bother. They hire people every week and people quit every week people on the line to engineers and managers. If you ever drive down to the Chaska...

    Advice to Management

    I’m only staying here until I find a new job. I’m not the only one that is saying that. Until you get rid of your stupid Kaba system and start letting non production employees having a leeway time. Oh and work place bullying figure it out!!!

    I worked at Lake Region Medical full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with view fellow employees.

    Cons

    Poor attitude towards listening to their employees especial HR.

    Advice to Management

    Bad Management don't listen to their employees, because it makes them feel insecure when they find that employees are smarter than them. Whatever they think is right, you have to do it. There is no system to follow. If you contact the HR you have to wait days and days to get respond even if it is an URGENT. While I was working within three months a lot of people quite include two supervisors and a manager. Everyone looks...

    Good experience if you're new to the industry, the crew at the Orchard Park Location are good people and you can learn a lot

    Cons

    They low ball you on your start pay considering the level of difficulty of the tasks at hand, I never received a Christmas bonus in the 3 years that I worked there but I got an Integer T-shirt and Lunch box...Since L.R.M. merged with GreatBatch Medical Healthcare costs increased and covered less, they closed 3 nearby shops, laid off a good amount of people and the CEO retired with over 2 million dollars in pay from Lake...

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating the company and employees like pawns in your business agenda just to build up your profile for the next CEO. Stop trying to find ways around EPA restrictions on waste disposal. You should also recognize that your cutting fluids for your CNC lathes have been proven to cause cancer, and therefor improve your healthcare not expect your employees to get sick on the shop floor and make them cover the bill.
