I would never recommend Thermo to anyone that I care about
Chemical Operations Technician (Derzeitiger Mitarbeiter) – Chelmsford, MA – 8. Juni 2018
A typical day at work involves a brief morning meeting to come up with a general plan for what products and work orders need to be completed that day, and also to discuss shortcomings of the team and specific individuals. The rest of the day involves completing my assigned tasks, as well as various odd-jobs, which often results in me multitasking (because my department is not staffed adequately), and covering for the negligence of other coworkers who can be very lazy and unmotivated at times. The few things that I learned from my current position include time management, troubleshooting equipment failures, and patience when dealing with difficult or emotional supervisors. The workplace culture is very individualistic, and also very reactive (rather than proactive), meaning that they wait for things to fall apart before they try to solve problems. The most challenging part of my job is that there is no sense of teamwork. The most enjoyable part of my job is the fact that its in an ideal location (close to home), and there are a few hardworking coworkers who I enjoy collaborating with.
