    I worked at ALS full-time


    Forward-thinking company with a global presence. Willing to spend money on new technology and method development in order to stay competitive. Modern facilities. Professional staff. Good place for new college grads to get some hands-on, production-lab experience. *Excellent retirement plan (401k + matching). See cons for more details.


    Questionable respect towards senior employees. The tendency of firing 20+ year employees who have excellent work records and vast amounts of applicable experience is happening at an alarming rate. It's disheartening when you consider the decades of hard work and sacrifice (countless weekends, holidays, and thousands of hours of unpaid overtime for many salaried workers) performed honorably and without question in order to satisfy company goals. I wouldn't necessarily expect this company to return the favor, and honor the goal of the employee who desires to work to full retirement age, especially if you are already working in the lab at a competitive salary. Receiving even minimum pay raises for the next 10 years could promote you to "overpaid' status in the eyes of corporate bean-counters. Then, you might just become another "business decision" for them when the need to hire arises and it is determined that too much of the payroll is tied up in older employees. This especially applies to senior employees working at labs that have been recently acquired . *Note: Only really pays off if you are allowed to retire.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee is being sized up for termination, not due to job performance, but for reasons that would make a company blush if admitted out loud, try offering them a restructured salary that better fits the company's vision before just offering them the door. You are more than likely about to dismiss an individual who has experience in nearly every department, and could easily be placed into a productive role with little or no training required. Not every senior employee would take an offer, however, some would. Keeping decades of loyalty and experience at a lower price seems like a pretty good deal, assuming that we're only considering employees with good histories.
