Tedium and repetition.
Animal Technician (Current Employee), Haslett, MIOctober 1, 2014
The bottom line of working at the Haslett Harlan location is that we do the same thing every single day. If that's what you like to do then it could be a good job. This is assuming you can get past the smell that thousands of rodents can make. Almost every person working their is very pleasant, though they are almost exclusively uneducated. Those that – more... aren't pleasant though.... Well, she holds a position of power and, for some reason, seems unfirable. She's absurdly lazy and does everything she can to get out of doing her work. I'm getting cranky describing this place so I'm going to end it here. Find work elsewhere unless you're truly desperate. – less

Some great people to work with :-)
Lab Technician, Ecotoxicology Dept (Current Employee), DerbyshireApril 27, 2014
Pros: local
Cons: lack of team play and having to work some weekends
All in all not a bad place to work,i work with some great people and some not so great as you could say with most companies.

Unfortunately there are those who just wont work as a team which can make your day not so enjoyable but on the whole my days go by quite quickly.

Harlan is a great place for anyone wishing to gain lab experience before moving – more... on for pastures new. – less

Avoid.
Manager (Former Employee), IndianapolisDecember 3, 2013
Pros: entertaining bar fights courtesy of sales leadership.
Cons: too many in nearly all areas.
Where to start? I'm upset with myself for choosing this place and sticking around for too long. If you want to lose your skill set, be faced with endless mind-numbingly inconsistent procedures, and work with an upper management trying to figure out how to work together and avoid the back-stabbing long term uneducated 25+ year employees; then this is – more... the place for you. This is not a business to be proud; it's rodents. You lower your standards and tell yourself it's for research (drink the koolaid), and then you realize how poorly equipped this place is to deal with their own incompetence. It's embarrassing to have this place listed on a resume. It's appalling what goes on here. – less

Harlan is a good place to begin
Microbiology technician (Current Employee), Derby, ENGSeptember 23, 2013
Pros: good hours, early finishes, constant workload, great people
Cons: no progression opportunities
A good starting point to a career in the life sciences. A good company with good values. A wide range of staff backgrounds, which has lead to under qualified individuals awarded roles in which they are not the best candidate.
