    I have been working at Vertellus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I am still relatively new to Vertellus but thus far they have been a wonderful company to work for. The best part is the people. We have a wonderful team at Vertellus. I have been with other unionized companies were there is a very adversarial relationship between the union and the company but here at Vertellus there is a great working relationship though out the entire site. Everyone in the company is extremely personable...

    Cons

    Since the bankruptcy several employees are still voicing concerns about the future. From my vantage point, I am not concerned. I see the senior management team making all the right decisions to ensure continue growth and a strong future.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to see the senior management team visit the sites on a more frequent basis than is currently happening.

  2. Happy to be part of the team!

    Pros

    Career opportunities, great benefits, strong financial position, great people, strong management team, and great boss!

    Cons

    False perception that company struggling after bankruptcy, but the elimination of bad debt positioned the business for growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating to the team as the new focus on communication with the new great website and intranet.

    I have been working at Vertellus full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    The pay is good The employees below a certain level still care They offer a decent Insurance and 401K package So understaffed that you may keep your job until the owners finish extracting every penny out of this former great company

    Cons

    Horribly maintained equipment Management is the worst I've ever dealt with. Upper management is all about lining pockets with unearned bonuses Middle management and engineering staff have no real clue how the plants and equipment run beyond their computers

    Advice to Management

    Fire the president and hire someone that is concerned with making the company successful instead of just ripping the money out. Just because management performs at the level required for bonuses does not mean they are doing good work for the company as a whole.

    I worked at Vertellus full-time

    Pros

    Great place for short term experience on multiple instruments and analytical chemistry. Great health benefits, mediocre 401k

    Cons

    Almost too many to list. Lack of employee compassion with a complete disconnect between upper management (corporate bosses ) and basic employees. All departments HR, IT, Lab, security and the plant are under staffed, and neglected financially . No advancements or growth opportunities for individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Love your employees, you have so many long and devoted employees that work very hard. They deserve a little respect.

    I worked at Vertellus

    Pros

    A lot of freedom and opportunity to learn various tests, unsupervised work after training, wide variety of different tests, and security is nice.

    Cons

    A few employees pipette concentrated nitric acid with little to zero PPE nor caution and fail to heed warnings and safety, fellow employees are very sensitive to new ideas as many of them have been working there for 10+ years, everything is very old, rusty, outdated, and looks as if it hasn't been cleaned in over 15 years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to both sides of a story before making a decision.
