  1. If the pay were a bit better, I would retire from here.

    I worked at Carolina Biological Supply Company full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly really great people. You are expected to work, but it is a very stable job. There are some I hope I stay friends with forever. Occasional treats, and they feed you like crazy at Christmas time. Also, if you get to actually do some lab work, there will be some variety. There were times I was enjoying it so much, it almost seemed unfair to take their money.

    Cons

    Low pay, lower raises, no chance of getting promoted. There are a few rotten people that seem to be hellbent on causing problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some clueless do-nothing supervisors. Thin them out and get the labs better staffed. Don't let anyone manage an area if they don't understand what's going on.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great to work with

    Cons

    Terrible management

    Old buildings with cockroaches

    Proper PPE is not provided because "it cuts into the bonuses" (I was literally told this)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves and get an all new management that is intelligent and cares about their work. The place has potential as long as the right people get into management.

    I worked at Carolina Biological Supply Company

    Pros

    This company has some of the best products in the market. I enjoyed the customers I was dealing with on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Human Resources are in favor of the people that been with the company for a long time. If you report anything to HR you might as well start looking for another job because they will do everything in there power to get you out. You must be in the "good ol boy network" in order to advance or succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your company will never reach its full potential if you keep operating the way you do. In fact, I vision a terrible future for Carolina Biogical.
