Glucerna Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Glucerna is the brand name of a family of tube feeding formula, bottled or canned shakes, and snack bars manufactured by Abbott Laboratories. It was introduced to the public in 1989. These medical nutritional products are meant for people with diabetes and are promoted for their ability to satisfy hunger without causing rapid increases in glucose concentration in the bloodstream.
A dissapointed customer said this in a review: "I tried Glucerna because I had started a very physical job and needed to keep my blood sugar from dropping so fast. However, I couldn't continue it, because it gave me severe sudden attacks of diarrhea. I actually ended up quitting my job over the embarrassment as it happened twice".

Working with chemical wearing only a mask white regular (not even the blue mask or n95), during covid19 pandemic the company is out of supplies of ppe’s, so we have to buy our own mask to work.

Management doesn’t value employee unless you’re working extreme hours or doing more than you should. Mangers don’t fight for employees so they won’t look bad. A lot of people leave and go to ppd for better pay and a better atmosphere."

Medical representative (Former Employee) says"Pésima experiencia laboral. Mienten mirándote a los ojos. Existe mucho celos profesionales en los niveles gerenciales y lo transmiten a través de la cadena laboral. Mucho reclutamiento por amistad lo que produce ambiente tóxico. El Adiestramiento fue pésimo y desorganizado. Los Objetivos de Ventas son Incongruentes con las Estrategias planteadas por año. El personal clerical trabaja 40 horas semanales pero el personal exento con algunas excepciones trabajan 35 horas o menos semanales. Es la primera vez que renuncio a un trabajo y no me despiden. En 6 meses llegué al punto de hastío con tanta incompetencia con títulos. No hay Honestidad ni conductas Éticas . Salario bajo beneficios escasos.Si llevas años trabajando con ellos es muy dificil que te despidanDemasiada Hipocresía laboral y mucha mentira en aras de lucir bien en las ejecutorias"
Finance AP (Former Employee) says"Management has created a culture and an overall feeling of less than with direct labor employees. This culture is felt everywhere creating low morale among employees. High demands on production rates, as long as the rates are met the supervisors receive large bonuses. This place is a place I would not recommend to anyone for employment if they are trying to find a technical career. The pay scale for an hourly employee is also far lower here as well."
Account compliance coordinator - promoted toImplementation Specialist (Former Employee) says"Finally made it into the mid 30k per year after 5 years. They make you feel like your such an asset to the company but will low ball you when merit increase comes along unless you're a suck up or always in management face you go unnoticed (college degree or not). I've pitched ideas that are still being used and got nothing for it. Not even recognized or praised by my manager. They will use you and make you feel bad for asking for a raise. Don't waste your time like I did."

Machine Operator (Former Employee) says"I was a contract worker with Adecco with no benefits, and the full time staff would take advantage of you. They would take extra long breaks while you had to operate their machine and your machine at the same time even though it was against FDA regulations. When we got inspected by the FDA we were told to only work on one machine. The management is not honest. The full time staff were bitter and would pick fights with the Adecco employees. We had no rights. I was assaulted by two full time staff members but of course they would say it was a joke because they had all the rights to do what they wanted with you. When you make a complaint about their behaviour the management whitewashing the incident and then turns the table on you by gaslighting and making you out to be the villain. The whole interview was about whether you can get along with difficult employees so they are not shy about saying it at the get go. It's a warning.occasional free lunchlong hours and abusive staff and flaky management"
Operator I (Current Employee) says"(4) 10 hour shifts, yet constant mandatory overtime. Managers say 'just get with the program' to protect their bonuses. You are a number, here. This place is dirty for a medical production area. Restrooms are constantly destroyed by co-workers. If you request time off, you get blamed for it & typically do not receive timeoff.Always workManagement"

Software Engineer (Former Employee) says"They are NOT a software company. Their whole model is to send the work offshore, and/or justify a visa for someone from India. The two consulting companies they use are India companies. The majority of the team was from India. They OPENLY exclude others from meetings. I can't tell you how many times I'd have a conversation that went like: Mgr: When will you be finished with X? ME: I dunno - I haven't heard anything about X. Mgr: What do you mean? B told you about it at the meeting yesterday! ME: What meeting yesterday? I wasn't invited. Mgr: Don't lie to me!! B told me that you were at the meeting and he told you to do X!! ME: Um, I'm not *lying* to you, but clearly B *is*. Regardless, I wasn't at the meeting. I wasn't invited. I was never asked to do X. Mgr: Well, I'm not going to argue this with you. Finish it today!! They're going to use you to get started or do things they can't do, then get you to teach someone else and let you go. I don't have a problem with setting something up as a contractor and doing knowledge transfer to an employee - just be honest with me tell me that up front. Don't lie to me and do bait and switch."
