A former inspector mentioned, "Terrible management at DeRoyal. Low pay, I'm now making more money at a grocery store!. No advancement opportunities. If you don't have a degree they automatically look down on you. Their motto is a joke... It should be "subpar parts for as cheap as we can possibly make it!". I'll be surprised if they don't sell out within a few more years."
Former Employee - Corporate says"Amazing the doors are kept open. A pitifully run company that runs the gamut of a toxic, morally deprived internal culture, combined with poor pay, no direction and no training Get your experience and get out as soon as possible. In my experience, DeRoyal crushes good employees and rewards those who keep their heads down and say yes. People routinely leave for lesser positions and take pay cuts"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Pitiful management situation now. You are only a number at DeRoyal now, not a person, If you tell the truth and are honest when asked, this is Not the correct response. "Tell me what I want to hear" or be the "yes man" is the correct answer."

Current Employee - Sealer says"Work orders are a mess ...there is no real management at the LaFollette, TN (US) plant. There is not one person willing to take on the task of making sure the work orders are correct as far as box sizes ,bag sizes or even wrap for the trays. The products are crammed in the boxes ...stuffed in bags way to small...causing the working conditions to be very stressful for most hourly employees..who were giving a chance to make production money ...but there is a catch the time is cut down so bad the workers are doing double the work for little production pay and when someone ask they are told we should only be worry about the amount of boxes per day not the money...Im an older employee... who was proud to work for a American owed company but sadden to how this co has gone from producing a good product to ...stuff ,crammed damaged product all in the name of saving a few cents ...the workers on the floor care if the wrap is the right size to fit the trays, the pouches are the right size and the product is placed in the right size box... but we are told to use what is on the work orders and there can be no changes??? wake up there is a lot of work to be done at that plant ...starting from the with some leadership ...!"

Territory Sales Manager (Former Employee) says"Company was a terrible place to work and it was only used to get into the healthcare market. It had week management and will never become a big medical company.nothing goodterrible management"
Continuum implementation specialist (Current Employee) says"This job has some perks. Vacation, sick leave, good insurance, 401k. However, management in Continuum is lacking at best. The director is very smug, and believes he is above questioning. He will ask you to do things he would never do himself (work weekends, overtime, replace parts on machines out of principle, not logic). You will also be very underpaid. Around 32,000 a year while upper management and meaningless project managers will make closer to 60,000. They have the money to pay the employees they want to pay. Good luck with this, there have been around 5 people quit in the last year out of an entire office holding 30 to 35 people. Have fun looking for another job in a couple of years."
Material Handler (Former Employee) says"My day at work depends on the workload, my co-workers were likeable, management could be (much) better, the amount of orders was the hardest part during the day, the most enjoyable part of the day was when I completed the orders."

Material Handler 3 (Former Employee) says"At first I loved working there. Benefits were pretty good. At one point and time the management was good. Slowly the management went down hill.

Stressful working environment at the end.Good people for the most part.Too many chiefs and not enough Indians"

Printing Clerk (Former Employee) says"When you first come in check to see if everyone is in the office to make sure you don't have to cover for someone. I review work orders for accuracy and then scan them into the system. I have not really learned anything new. This company makes medical trays and basically you pull parts and put them in bags record the lot numbers and the material gets sorted onto carts and brought into the room for sub assembly to open material and count material into batches of fifty then the carts are brought to a line (there are 12 lines) and then they are assembled by looking at a picture in a folder they get wrapped and sealed into plastic bags then a packer places them in boxes and they are shipped to be sterilized. There is really nothing hard to do. It is hard on your feet and arms depending on where you work. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with some of the people.It is only day shift at the LaFollette plantThe pay is not that good"
Injection Mold Operator (Current Employee) says"It is an average workplace. It offers benefits for employers including health, dental, vision, 401k. It does not seem like there is much room for moving up in the company.Paid lunch12 hour work days makes a long day, hot in the warehouse"
