    I worked at Promega full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    All of the people I worked with at Promega were interested in strong relationships and getting a good product out to customers. Technical Support is considered VERY important and this leads to happier customers. Most groups within the organization see career path as a key component to keeping their folks happy.

    Cons

    Promega isn't always the highest paying company in biotech. There is variability in the strength of work-life balance between different areas of the company.

    I worked at Promega

    Pros

    Great benefits, wonderful healthcare facility. Management is eager to be successful, and it trickles down to employees. Good support for technical teams.

    Cons

    Too darn cold and snowy in winters! Sometimes, when things get too exciting, management tries to take shortcuts - which lead to mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't immediately shift to outside consulting to fix things. In-house staff is very smart and dedicated, and should be a part of the process for improvements.

    I worked at Promega

    Pros

    This company has plenty of great and interesting people from a broad spectrum - scientists to home beer brewers. Many midwesterners with a good sprinkling of people from around the world. Their flagship headquarters building is unique and the company cafeteria was far better than many restaurants I've experienced.

    Cons

    In a competitive world and crowded job market, you'll need to be amongst the very best and well educated. There is good training, but as with many larger organizations, you should be pretty self sufficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a contract worker, I received a good initial welcome and guidance to fit in. However, that faded over time. At the point in which my time was up, my departure was pretty anticlimactic with almost no recognition that I was leaving. I didn't expect any grand send-off. However, even HR seemed to just go through the minimal requirements to send me on my way, with barely a "good luck".
