    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

    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

    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.

    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
