This company hired me fresh out of college and I will always be grateful for that opportunity. However, management does not listen to your concerns and will not assist when you run into issues regarding safety and age of equipment. The entire lab was out of date and we were expected to keep the instruments up and running no matter the circumstances. Workplace culture was more or less "Just get it done however you can so no one else has to hear from upper management." The hardest part of the job was producing AMAZING results with less than standard equipment and training. My coworkers were the best part of the job.
Pros
coworkers
Cons
old/outdated lab equipment

I've been working here for a couple of months now, I came in hoping to learn many things. The lab setup is great, we have good equipment but barely anyone who is knowledgeable enough to use it. The training is horrendous because most management barely knows how to use the equipment and therefore cannot train anyone but you will be the first to be blamed when things go awry. Overall the job experience has been subpar with many stressful days and very little time for yourself. Your life will consist of eating, sleeping, and working with no time for friends because they are so severely understaffed that you will be called in a lot. I came in wanting to like this place and am now counting down the days until I leave. If you can find a job at another place take it.

There are lot of things to learn from SGS. Here we are using several sophisticated instruments. Seniors giving very good training to use the instruments. Lab team is very supportive.

A lot of things to learn & experience especially using various kind of instruments in the laboratory. I learned a lot especially for gas sample, crude oil sample & water samples. Trainings are provided by seniors. Sometimes, offshore travel is required which is good for exposure.

Since starting, the workload has increased considerably, even in slow periods, and little to no training is provided. SOPs are outdated and often incorrect, and following them exactly will often lead to hours and hours of staying late. In addition, requested minimum amounts of overtime. Hopefully they can pick themselves up down the road, but it's not looking promising
Pros
Good benefits, decent salary
Cons
Long hours, required overtime, little assistance

I was very excited when I got my offer letter. The pay is nice but not worth all the work you have to do. They want you there all the time and will make you work nonstop. They will not work with you if you have a family or need time off. But most of the people there are nice. Managers and leads definitely need some kind of training on how to manage people. Or maybe just on people skills.

Little to no training. Too many supervisors (too many chiefs, not enough Indians). Has graduates employed regularly and they’re gone within a year or two. Working hours/shifts are ridiculous so work-life balance is tough. Labs/offices/stores are all disgusting. Health and safety is nonexistent. Instruments are old and bodged up to keep them running. LIMS system old and antiquated

You gain knowledge that you can use elsewhere. They provide proper training and because of that you are highly soughted out by other companies. This is not a place for a career. Since management by Thomas Phan, the company has went downhill quickly. All the incentives that were there to motivate employees are gone, NO RAISES!

Since so many people quit either due to low pay or too much stress , situations are getting worse for those who has to complete other people’s work and overworked as a result currently there is no work life balance. May be situation improve in future.
Pros
Lot of training provided overall, people usually helpful, you will learn good wet techniques in short span of time.
Cons
Too much stress due to overworking, less pay as compared to other companies.

SGS was the starting point for my career. It was a great experience working for such a company because of all the instruments I was exposed to. I was also able to experience a supervisor role while at SGS.
