Lab tech in Bretby, Derbyshire
on 27 November 2020
Avoid if you can! Pay is absolutely atrocious for the amount of work you're expected to do. The glass ceiling is real. Very little chance for advancement.

Please avoid this company if you value your mental health.
I would’ve rated this company zero stars had I been allowed to rate no stars, management are on a constant power trip. Always being pushed to submit results in unachievable dead lines (management double book capacity and question why deadlines aren’t met). Pay is absolute peanuts, with no indication of progression or advancement despite following managements advice for progression. Instrumentation not up to spec for ANY methods. Hypocrisy on policies, lab technicians are subjected to full force of management whilst seniors seemingly get away with breaking policies. Management and seniors behave unacceptably and disrespectfully to anyone below them, treated as a disposable staff member. You won’t be valued here, once management are done with you they will toss you aside. Avoid and steer well clear.

Great place to work
From the minute I joined SOCOTEC I have felt supported, both personally and professionally. The management care about their employees and the working environment is professional yet friendly and relaxed. The team culture is really strong and everyone looks out for each other, with managers accessible and easy to talk to. Training and development is actively encouraged and supported and there are always opportunities to develop new skills or refine existing ones.

Misleading and discrimination in managment
No professional manner in the workplace, only focused on production in analysis of samples and have no progression within the company. Lab technicians are treated like students, a lot of discrimination within management in regards colour of your skin and get treated differently. The labs are not clean at all there is no proper safety measures taken always compromises made if something needs looking at. Do not work in SOCOTEC its a scam to call it a professional lab work place.
Senior Laboratory Technician in Carcroft, South Yorkshire
on 1 July 2020
In the current time working here I have learned a vast amount of info in this field through the testing we carry out. My day at work includes checking the work in progress files, finding the specific samples needed for whichever testing I am performing on the day, preparing the samples in the correct way, undertaking the specific testing required, processing the results and then sending them to the admin team ready to send to the clients. Training new staff in specific testing when needed. Assisting other staff members with any help I can.
