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.

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

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.

Overall Summary

The job itself is very thorough and enjoyable. The hours were sometimes very unpredictable however in certain departments the hours were regular. The training was thorough and it got you ready for the work you will be doing independently.

Good people, hours not so great

you work with a good team but the work life balance is not that great, if you show initiative you can learn a lot. Training is not readily available.
