productive and fun place.
Good place to start your career in the medical device industry. Persistence is key to advancement but also timing is important. The canteen is fairly good with decent food but improvement is always welcome.

Some very Nice people on the floor, forgotten by upper management
Good place for experience, but salaries uncompetitive, probably not good longterm, As reviews are behind inflation..
Loads of opportunities to advance, with a revolving door turnover of staff.

has everything to be a good place, but it doesn't work
The people in general are respectful and good co-workers, the company has excellent benefits, the work doesn’t have great difficulties as long as you are attentive and committed, however, the rates become very low if you don’t t perform overtimes, and after the contract directly by the company, overtimes become even more necessary, which leaves the operator’s exhausted and lifeless outside of work. The alternating shifts, still associated with the lack of nighttime subsidies, mean that many operators do not settle in this place of work as long as they want. Many of them are just there waiting for the opportunity for a job promotion, but that rarely happens to operators, although the vast majority have a college degree, a master's degree or a technological degree. Great talents, unfortunately, are wasted while they are looking for someone outside of the company.

An overall good place of work where there is mutual respect for all.
Its a good place to work. Employee inputs are valued . It has good prospect for career progression. However management need to look into remuneration package and make it more competitive among the industry rate.

lack of communication
Job is not that hard. You work shift work but you have no shift allowance which is not fair. people are not competent for their work. roatations are too big so you have to cover more than you should.

Good start
Job is fine, shifts are horrible if you want a normal life with a routine. Money could be better so they would have less turnover.
Too many lazy people, specially old operators and polish. There's no motivation to work your best as even if you get the contract you keep the same money.
Pros
Some people
Cons
Money
