An acceptable company if you are newly graduated

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If you badly need a year of experience then MSXN is fine. If you are any further in your career it is not a good option. Very little money is invested in the equipment or the staff.

Good job to start out but no advancement opportunities

I worked in the receiving department and the workload was high some period of times. The main issue is there is no room for advancement and the overall atmosphere was depressing.

Good for entry level, but don’t stay

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.

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.

opportunities for growth are rare, the lab is always understaffed, huge turnover

Good starting job to add a line to your resume. Sparse opportunities for growth, very poor training system, everyone is overworked and genuinely unhappy


The job itself is interesting, you can learn a lot, albeit, with no additional compensation


Long and unpredictable hours

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.

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.
