    Animal Care Technician

    Animal Care Technician (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGood benefits, opportunity to meet many people in the research field. They also have lots of seminars of many people in the field presenting. Lots of over time available.

    ConsWithin the laboratory animal care environment theres really bad management, and very little motivation. The pay raise is really bad, there is not much room for growth. The supervisors are very unprofessional and the lack the good leadership skills. I would say that its a very conservative environment where management over all is inflexible and will never defend their subordinates from upper management. Over all, the laboratory animal care environment presents a totally different face of the university.

    Advice to Senior Managementget new supervisors and focus in expanding your pretentious "eco friendly" system into the medical campus where nobody even bothers to recycle a soda cans.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Research Scientist

    Research Scientist (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's very creative and meaningful work. I can also manage my time. My work includes designing, executing, and interpreting the experiment as a scientist. And I am working as a study coordinator, and involved in clinical trial. I feel very well in doing research and working with people in different areas. I have strong record of publication in top journals, which is very rewarding for my hard work. I am also earned experience of supervising during working with research assistants in the lab, and I was training them in many lab tasks.

    ConsAs a research scientist, I have chance to apply my knowledge in different areas. But I want broader opportunities that keep me in touch of the frontier science and technology. I also like to be more productive and effective in my work which is related to the development of working environment. And the other important thing is the compensation for my work. Considering all of these, I am trying to find a research job in industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncouragement and effective communication can improve the work efficiency.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No tenure. As a researcher you must have grants.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFamous university, so good to build your early career.

    ConsNo tenure, no incentives to keep home researches. Instead, they prefer to take the risk and pay half a million to researchers from other universities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more opportunities - yes, money - to home researchers, not only to outsiders.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
