    I worked at Absorption Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small privately owned and managed CRO with special expertise in, but not limited to, drug transporters and testing facilities for comprehensive pre-clinical studies of small drug molecules. You can learn a lot from senior staff. Working/life balance is good, not overloaded. Flexible working options possible. Very good working relationships. If you satisfied with your position you can work forever.

    Cons

    Junior staff is underpaid and rotated quickly. Always new people under training. No real space to advance career goals. Benefits are below average.

    Advice to Management

    Make salaries attractive to keep junior staff working longer. Explore new directions for business through investment in emerging biopharmaceutical research using current management and facilities infrastructure but stimulating innovative projects

    I worked at Absorption Systems full-time

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities there to learn, and cross train into different areas. Easy going people to be able to as questions if i was unsure and be able to spend time with outside of work.

    Cons

    Some of the management was a little difficult. My boss, i felt, didn't follow protocol, and just took too many smoke breaks, and difficult to understand what they wanted.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Absorption Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good place to learn the lab, account management, project management, etc. Scientists work minimum hours.

    Cons

    Company is run by the COO and management is very loose and operates subjectively. Structure, roles and decisions seem whimsical and change often. Business side works very demanding hours for low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Owners need to get involved and see what's really going on. They need more structure and guidelines for management and employees. Favorites and biases are obvious.
