    I worked at Rockland Immunochemicals full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working at Rockland was a great career decision. In the IT department, I had constant opportunities to learn new things and grow my resume. I was lucky to have managers who were willing to let me tackle problems using new tools, even it if meant a longer turn-around time. If you're considering joining Rockland for a data role, this is a great place to learn/improve your skills in Power BI, Excel, SQL, and SSRS. Rockland also has a very relaxed environment and employs many friendly and supportive people.

    Cons

    None - this field makes you put at least 5 words, so here they are.

    I have been working at Rockland Immunochemicals full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    While old reviews are incredibly harsh and somewhat dramatic, there is truth to some. I have been fortunate enough to stick it out with Rockland and witness the amazing and positive changes that have happened over the last two years specifically. It wasn't always easy, but it has absolutely been worth it. The best parts about Rockland are: the flexibility, the customer focused environment, free coffee, frequent parties and activities, pays well, routine raises and the close bonds formed with coworkers

    Cons

    The work area is open and tends to be loud and communication is still a work in progress especially with upper and senior management. Some policies and procedures are outdated and there is WAY too much tribal knowledge mentality.

    Pros

    Working at Rockland gave me hands on experience in skills and techniques in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. On top of bench work experience, I also developed skills such as communication and teamwork and organization that were crucial to timely and quality completion of tasks.

    Cons

    Technology needs to be updated to minimize administration time from employee so they can dedicate more time to focus on hands on tasks.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Rockland Immunochemicals full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are no pros. I will instead utilize this space to convey that I was lied to during my interview process, and on the first day I reported to work they attempted to pay me $2.00 less per hour than was previously agreed upon.

    Cons

    Management and Human Resources have been SOLICITING positive reviews. While this is within the company’s right, on behalf of all those former employees BRAVE enough to leave truthful, negative reviews, let me assure any prospective employees - you DO NOT want to be employed with Rockland Immunochemicals.
