    I worked at ABEC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good Co-workers make the work bearable.

    Upper management only cares for themselves and view employees as disposable. Shift Leads just want to make themselves look good. Employees are used up and thrown away.

    Pros

    Getting a certain exposure to some multinational customers, on large projects was interesting, but it is clear, that they rely on a small customer base who account for the majority of revenue. When the loyalty of these cutomers receeds they will fail and end up in liquidation, with the Irish operation the first to be removed.

    Cons

    Actual quality of the final systems is atrocious, but expected when using suppliers from China and the systems are manufactured in Springfield MO, with workers who have no appreciation of hygienic sytems for Biologic drugs. Salary is awful. Travel policy is terrible. Force you to sign "per diem" expense letters, for foreign projects, so you can't claim your full entitlements if your allowance is exceeded. No cars offered on company travel locally or abroad. Working hours break the break, the Organisation of Working Time Act, 1997 in particlular section 15 & 17. Yearly Salaryies increase based on a rating system of months worked, approximately 2%, not the individuals performance. No increase in salaries when promoted to lead roles. Will lie in intial interviews to bring you on board. Middle and upper management, are absolutely terrible cowards, with no back bone. Work in fear with governance remotely from the US. All decisions are filtered through the US. Overtime rate is 4%. No flexitime. No days in lieu. No continual professionl development or training offered.

    I worked at ABEC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits great employees. The work is interesting and can be exciting. There is a feeling of comradery between most of the employees on the floor.

    Cons

    Management, a serious lack of communication between the different factions. Upper management makes promises to customers that are impossible to keep and then the blame falls on production. There is a constant revolving door of employees. Management views the production floor as cattle and treat them as such. Recently they started using inferior parts and the high end reputation of the company's work is failing fast. Company makes a lot of promises to employees but very seldom actually meets them.0

    I worked at ABEC

    Pros

    Time off and Benefits were decent. Co-workers were bunch of characters and could be fun.

    Cons

    Management: Micromanaging, elitist upper management, Penn State favoritism, spying and reactionary, not progressive. Co-workers: some racism, not kidding, revolving door. Travel: don't believe their estimates, don't pay for all travel time.
