      Overall great company to work for.

      1 Jun 2021 - Senior Electrical Engineer in Saint Louis, MO

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The benefits are on par with some of the much larger companies in the area. All managers (low-level up to Site Director) are very approachable and well-rounded. The products the company makes save lives throughout the world, which gives most employees a sense of higher purpose for their work. The company promotes continued education and self-improvement via tuition reimbursement and internal/external training programs. There is a health program called Vitality that rewards employees for staying "healthy" by reducing healthcare premiums (to $0 in most cases) and giving redeemable rewards points. There are restricted stock share programs every few years. Changing roles within the company is promoted in most cases, instead of frowned upon. 35% of the employees have been with the company longer than 30 years.

      Cons

      The company's successes are made possible by the work of a few hard-working, competent individuals. There are many single points of failure in the org chart, meaning if one of these key people were to leave the company tomorrow, it would take months (maybe even years) for the company to recover. Annual merit increases are typically barely above the rate of inflation, even when you Exceed Expectations. Promotions are hard to achieve unless you move to a role in a different department. It takes at least a year of learning/onboarding until you finally feel like you have a basic understanding of how the change management system works. There are typically 100+ standard operating procedures you are expected to train to and comprehend in your first few weeks. Arbitrary deadlines are treated as the most important metric in any project. When a schedule starts to slip, everyone starts pointing fingers and blaming each other instead of focusing on the corrective actions. A typical company should expect an engineer to spend 5-10% of their time on change management, but here, it is closer to 70%.

      Great Entry Level Experience

      Pros

      The lab and co. knows what role it plays in supplying superior training of scientific, industrial laboratory employees and/or food safety experts, depending on where employees move in their next steps in their careers. Take advantage of every training opportunity and look deeper than just what is clearly visible on the surface to gain the most out of the experience. Ask a lot of why questions out loud or internally.

      Cons

      It's tough work. Those with experience in the service industry, especially restaurants and bars are well suited to understand how to operate best in the environment, especially when paired with a scientific degree. It can be intense, monotonous, heavy lifting or repetitive motions with a high degree of attention to detail and integrity required.

      Pros

      Kind people and amazing benefits. Also there are various departments to explore if you apply around internally.

      Cons

      Lower level of the company and production department are not flexible with employee scheduling. As you increase in rank you are treated exponentially better.
