    Pros

    They money was good and the work was not that hard.

    Cons

    No direction when it come to over all plain. Each department will not communicate with each other unless forced to do so. They just do not fallow (FDA) regulation for the most part. No matter how much they are willing to pay you they will not list to you professional advice. IPAX Lab is a blame game factory, no matter how poorly the management plan and implant a project it always the contractor fail, "So, if you are a contractor take the money and run".

    Advice to Management

    To white, too old and too out of touch to be effect in any capacity.

    Pros

    Pay is below average, but its a good resume builder. SOP Training is about 2 weeks long on average and the actual job training begins afterwards.

    Cons

    terrible and highly unprofessional management. Getting hired as a temp is more common than not. The temp agency they use are incredibly difficult to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat the people you supervise as employees that have no rights.

    Pros

    If you are a new graduate with no real world experience, they will hire and train you, besides, you have the chances to perform various tests.

    Cons

    The compensation is well below average, not much work-life balance and tons of responsibilities which should not be applicable to chemists.

    Advice to Management

    The company is under new management now, not sure what's happening, but wish them all the best.

    Pros

    they hire you quickly thru staffing agencies and whether you have a degree or not they treat you all the same. i had an engineering background and they placed me on the simplest least technical departments department while the college drop out got to work on the most complex equipment. huge lack of general foresights

    Cons

    bad management that is always leaving because they know whats good for them

    Advice to Management

    go somewhere else

    Pros

    - Immediate Co-workers are, for the most part, very friendly. - Except for one case, supervisors were generally understanding and friendly

    Cons

    - Terrible backbiting/gossip. - Each group has to compete for money to get the supplies and workers they need. - When it's time for job reviews to decide who is getting a raise, the company goes to war with itself with backstabbing and gossip in order to get a larger share of the money. People who are otherwise nice to you are quick to stab you in the back in order to secure a new file cabinet, temp, or wage raise for their department. This creates a very passive-aggressive, demoralizing environment to work in

    Advice to Management

    - Provide your groups with enough supplies. - Try and control gossip. It's destructive and the person gossiped about always finds out. No amount of free pizza can make someone feel good about working at a company if they find out that the leader from another department has been lying to your supervisor in order to sabotage you or your department's chances at getting an additional cardboard box or stapler. - Treat your low-level employees with respect
