Good for entry level, but don’t stay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This is a great company to learn the ropes of the industry. But don’t plan on staying. It’s hard to maintain the hours for a long time. There is very little room for advancement and it isn’t likely that you will leave your department for another.

Growth opportunity non existent

Paid poorly to do a job. Treated as a head count to make money for the company. New business means no extra benifits for employees, only for management with bonuses. Overworked and underpaid

A great place to work at for an entry level job

A great place to work at for an entry level job. They spend a lot of time training you to develop your laboratory techniques and skills. They also let you think of ways on working more efficiently. However, there is OT almost every single day and will tell you to work faster if you are working too slow.

Toxic environment to work. Backstabbing, gossip, etc.

People don't stay for to long. Overtime is mandatory, and every day. You don't have time to go home. Everyone is your boss. Supervisors don't know how to give feedback. They pin you on the wall in front of everybody.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Music

Uncertain workload, unfair distribution of work and stressful environment.

You will be in stress at all times. Company does not care about your physical or mental health. Working hours are uncertain.People usually leave the job after 2-3 months. You can see for yourself.

Pros

You are paid. You will meet some excellent team members.

Cons

Everything else.

Great company

Low pay at the start. Tons of room for advancement. Friendly coworkers who are happy to teach. Flexible hours but you cannot work from home due to the nature of the job.

Pros

Free food

Sample Receiving

No real opportunity for advancement. Work gets download to the lower levels often; no real "teamwork", everyone has to look out for themselves. Long hours and unreliable breaks.

Good place to gain entry level experience

Work life balance was very challenging in the microbiology department. You are expected to work weekends, time off is sometime denied, was a challenge requesting to leave early and work very late nights. The training program in Micro was very good and the people in micro were a pleasure to work with. The chemistry department had much better work life balance. Hard department to move up in and training was very poor.
