They only hire people with 0-little experience so easy to get hired right out of school.
Lunch is sometimes bought to buy time when the entire lab wants to quit, so if you like free food but no change in work lifestyle that’s a pro.
Upper management seems to know how to run the business side of things.
Pay is terrible for the amount of work you are expected to do. Raises are promised and then not given.
Training opportunities are provided, but are not followed through on.
If you are good at your job they will keep piling on responsibilities with no extra compensation or incentives.
If you are terrible at your job they will take away responsibilities until you are doing the bare minimum but still getting paid the same as everyone else (actually maybe this is a pro....)
Huge rate of turnover. Always new people training, never get to a level where everyone is trained.
Disconnect between sales and the lab, no one seems to be able to decide on responsibility and work is shifted back and forth between the departments.
Lab level management is abysmal. They don’t know how to work with or deal with human individuals on a daily basis. Can run all over them, but watch your back because there is a lot of ‘blame’ mentality.
Advice to Management
Hire lab management that have strong people skills and aren’t afraid to actually manage.
There needs to be a balance in management with social and technical skills.
Pay people more and give incentives to those who perform well
