Good team atmosphere, with permanent and temporary workers all included. Sharing ideas is encouraged. Lots of humour, some really fun personalities. Most vacancies are circulated internally first. Much more focus on solving issues than blaming individuals. A free weekly "happy bus" into Loughborough.
Policy says temps must be let go after ten months. Little long term opportunity for anyone outside the science/ lab background. Archaic systems in places, some of the work is very dull. Some "cubicle mentality". Many employees say "obviously" about twelve times an hour. Until Christmas 2012 everyone has to eat lunch in a tent (canteen space being used for a special project).
Advice to Management
Consider whether retaining trained experienced temps for longer is worthwhile. Senior management could be a bit more accessible.
