    I have been working at Nitto Avecia full-time

    Pros

    Lunch breaks are an hour long. There are times when days are slow and not much work is needed. Great start up company for experience if straight out from college.

    Cons

    At times can be very disorganized and the equipment is not up to date.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees much better because they need to have their lunch breaks and be more organized with business plans.

    I have been working at Nitto Avecia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits and plenty of opportunities to obtain the experience needed to begin in a biotech field. Definitely a smaller company but this allows for a friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Low pay for the amount of work expected or the amount of expertise of an individual (across multiple positions). Lack of qualified and effective management.

    Pros

    Environment is fast paced and challenging. You can learn a lot here in a short period of time. The company has been expanding and buying lots of new equipment. Good opportunities for promotion for those who stay with the company for 2 or more years. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Work load can be high. We work with many different customers and each one seems to have a different preference for what they want to see. Managing each client can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Since Nitto bought Avecia 5 years ago, things have improved a lot. Nitto invests every year in our growth. A lot camaraderie and fun. They grow and use new technologies to extend our leadership in Oligonucleotides manufacturing. This week they told us about a great bonus

    Cons

    We have a lot of work. It's not for laid back people but management hires a lot new employees and expands our capacity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the company and continue to take care of employees

    Pros

    People who work here are great. Friendly environment. Line level managers and directors are flexible with schedules as long as the job gets done.

    Cons

    The company has grown quickly over the past couple of years. With all of the new people it can seem chaotic at times and space is very tight.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are being asked to do a lot during this growth period and the incentive should be better to recognize this work.

    I have been working at Nitto Avecia full-time

    Pros

    Good place to work, focus on employees safety, great incentive packages, career advancement courses, company lunches and good career growth prospects.

    Cons

    This company has too much emphasis on safety. No stock options given to employees. It has space constraint but the company has incredible opportunity to growth.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a good idea to give stock options to employees. Space constraint in the building needs to be addressed. The company management is very considerate and employee friendly.

    I worked at Nitto Avecia full-time

    Pros

    The co-workers were pleasant and good people. There was technically sound people in the company.

    Cons

    Upper Management enjoyed playing the blame game even through they did not understand the problem. Would not address the root causes but the surface problems

    Advice to Management

    Understand what would help the employees not with lip service but help. There was too much work and not enough time.

    I have been working at Nitto Avecia part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are fantastic. Co workers are helpful and friendly. Nice benefits I need to think of eight more words and I just can't.

    Cons

    Senior team has no communication skills. The annual performance review doesn't reflect the increase in wages. Communication between departments is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your people. Better informed better work
