    I worked at Threshold Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, and a very easy opportunity to get experience in an analytical chemistry laboratory. Great for fresh college grads who are interested in the food chemistry industry.

    Cons

    No realistic opportunities to move up, management plays favorites and publically criticizes you based on performance and mistakes. The blame game is common here. Many departments go through cycles of employees and have bad employee retention due to pay/management. Bad benefits and not competitive pay. A reasonable raise is a myth here. Good people that try to make a positive change in the company end up going bad based on the neglect and negativity here.
    This place is best to work for 1-2 years at most and then move on.

    Advice to Management

    Stop throwing people under the bus for personal gain. Annual raises should be more consistent.

    I worked at Threshold Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Good People, good commute (proximity to employees living in Santa Cruz County), flexible work schedules, good balance of work and personal life.

    Cons

    Lack of yearly performance reviews, salaries do not keep pace with changes in economy, exceptional performance sometimes goes unrewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Goals of company, when set, are unclear or not clearly communicated to lower echelons of company; goals and procedures of individual departments sometimes conflict with other departments and there is no over-riding mechanism to bring separate departmental goals and procedures in alignment with company policy or lack thereof.

    Pros

    - A great mix of personalities and talents scattered throughout the organization.
    - Location- Scotts Valley
    - Industry has a lot of opportunity for growth

    Cons

    - Upper management is unwilling to listen to new ideas
    - There is no guaranteed parking ( BIG ONE) . Employees must park .25 mile away on street and walk every other week. A legal and safety risk as well as a bad message to current employees.
    - Pay is not competitive.
    -

    Advice to Management

    Upper management ( CEO) needs to start listening to Human Resources regarding complaints and feelings being had within his company. Some easy changes, with little to no increase in costs, can improve morale, production, and growth.

    I have been working at Threshold Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly easy going atmosphere, deadlines are typically soft (even when they shouldn't be). People are nice and try to have some sort of camaraderie.

    Cons

    The CEO just has no clue. This industry is huge, and if he let his executive team make decisions and maybe sat back a bit, his company could make some serious money and make a serious difference in the industry, maybe the world! But, he's too much of a micro manager to do that.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to make more of an effort to push the CEO to allow them to make decisions. Otherwise, management is fine - it's just one person that is truly responsible for the lack of success this company has had in recent years.

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Flexible work schedule and training

    Cons

    Low wage
    Consistent Laboratory Turnover (3-6 months)

    Advice to Management

    Raise laboratory wages to compete with those over the hill. This will create long term employees that will uphold the quality of results, and save the company money in the long run.
