you needed to be the type of person if you want something you better fight for it. Had to advance when the wall is built very high. Quite a few negative people and training is hard to get sometimes

The time off and retirement are the key bennies at Lonza. The health insurance goes down in quality every year. Leadership is beyond terrible and out of touch. They have adopted the "Lean is Mean" mindset. Which really just means everyone is overworked, under-payed, and under-appreciated. They throw away money creating jobs that have no impact on day to day operations. People are promoted based on friendships, not on capabilities and improvements they have made in their department.
Pros
Nice Cafe, good schedule, good amount of vacation and sick, good 401k match
Cons
Leadership is out of touch, decisions are made by people who have never done the job before, pay is not comparable to same jobs in MA

The job is not hard but the culture of the place is not for a family oriented person. You will be at work way more than you have time with your family
Pros
Paid lunch
Cons
people quit a lot

Typical day would consist of rushing for anything and everything. Mountains being made out of mole hills with the feel of being vilified put on you if you didn't meet the "expectations". Best thing about this place, is the people. The people who are the ones of the ground and not sat in the "ivory tower" as it were. If you need support then everyone chips in and helps. You feel welcome but staff are not valued by most of the managers. Shift work if you are on shift can be moulded around home life but some aspects of the job can get in the middle of it too. Salary is as expected but is not much to scream about. Benefits are good.
Pros
Great people, Benifits
Cons
Poor management, bullying

Always playing catch up. Poorly managed under a corporate base that is slowly destroying the business that was so strong. Knowledge base is being eroded by driving away experienced personnel.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Dirty environment, worn out equipment.

The Walkersville location was experiencing some management changes while I was there, but overall I had a pleasant experience. Coworkers and mid-level management were highly knowledgeable and more than willing to teach new employees. The company occasionally provided free lunches, outdoor picnic days, etc, which helped to boost overall morale.

Although Lonza is a huge organization, where I worked was nice and cozy. I've learned so much in the short time frame I'm there. The purification process is fascinating. My co-workers and supervisors are amazing.
