    Pros

    It was very quick for me to land the position as a temp chemist at big heart. Started right after the interview on the same day. Astrix offered me other opportunities before which were for big companies and some were contract to hire.

    Cons

    pay is lower than other agencies'. Offered me a benefit package for which I have to pay around $70 a week, not quite a benefit.

    Pros

    Working on a long term government contract which provides a lot of stability. Structured environment and protocols vs. the research which I was doing previously in academia and didn't really like. Good benefits and flexible schedule.

    Cons

    The bench work tends to be repetitious but still plenty to learn as a recent grad.

    Advice to Management

    The local supervisor is hands on, which I like and can have access to corporate resources when needed. Visits by corporate make the onsite team feel like part of a bigger organization, which is good and should be continies

    Pros

    Work was basic; easy to do; Real-time PCR

    Cons

    Unqualified Supervisor
    Lot of favoritism and unfair practice.
    Upper management doesn't care about your complaints and will lie to you .
    If you come across more intelligent then them than you are in big trouble; they will try to prevent you from excelling.

    Advice to Management

    stop showing favoritism and discrimination.
    do not stop someone from excelling b/c they have more experience or more intelligent.


  7. simple and straight forward

    I worked at Astrix Technology Group

    Pros

    simple and straight forward way of getting a contract job and they look for alternative positions as well which helps...

    Cons

    have not really tried to see if conversion is possible and are generally hands off after you get the position

    Advice to Management

    contract workers don't want to be contract for long and want to be converted to full time permanent positions so they need to keep on it

    I do not like the company! They promise to do things at start and they end up denying it. that is most frustrating part.
