    Pros

    Meet your match made in heaven here! Excellent for desperate college grads & high school grads who don't mind minimum wage. Get experience and move on to better job.

    Cons

    Too much gossip -High Turnover-Low Morale-Unqualified Managers-Favoritism-Low Salary-No remorse for terminating employees

    Advice to Management

    When venting, choose audience and words wisely. Keep your personal life private, have more meetings with your team on improvement, communication & training.

    Pros

    A job for new college grads to get experience and then go on to a better position with a different company.

    Cons

    Poor management, pay lower than industry average, complete uncertainty now that the company has been acquired, revolving door turnover across all levels, unrealistic expectations of management, no professional development or career advancement, nepotism hiring runs rampant, unqualified people in most mangement and senior roles. If Aerotek is trying to place you in a job here, ask if there are any openings at Genentech instead.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe LGC can break even on their purchase after they sell the Novato and Petaluma facilities?

    Pros

    Location is great, and employees very friendly. There are two facilities one in Petaluma and one in Novato. The company was recently bought out by LGC, a larger EU company.

    Cons

    Biosearch Tech has a great deal of turn over. A lot of new college grads come through temp agency, but find higher paying, more rewarding jobs elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not very knowledgable or experienced. Many people seem to have moved up just due to tenure, not experience and this is reflected in their lacking management skills.

    Pros

    Good people. Friendly environment. Few politics.

    Cons

    No career development, lower than average pay.

    Advice to Management

    Develop career paths and development for employees. Pay us a decent salary for the Bay Area so we have incentive to stay.

    Pros

    Most co-workers are helpful and willing to teach and contribute expertise.

    Cons

    There are a few bad apples who also happen to have been at the company for a long time. They require a thick skin to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Require training for managers.

    Pros

    There's a good culture here. Almost everyone treats their coworkers with respect.

    Cons

    The pay is too low.

    Advice to Management

    Try and keep up with industry standard pay. A lot of your employees live in San Francisco, and it makes it hard to get by.
