    Pros

    Fair job, they expect you to work, but they don't push too hard. It seems nearly impossible to get fired if you come in and give a decent effort. They do nice things for the employees frequently. If you can live off of what you make here, it's ok.

    Cons

    Low pay, low raises, no upward mobility. People with "good" jobs will stay there until they die. There are a few horrible managers that seem to have nothing to do except causing problems.

    Honesty is NOT the best policy here. It gets used against you.

    Pros

    Co-workers were awesome, two weeks vacation

    Cons

    Horrible management that doesn't accept responsibility, no encouragement, no room for growth, low pay, very old equipment.

    Customer service may be better, I can't speak on their behalf.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When an employee is honest with you don't use that against them. We are only trying to better the company, not make a personal attack.

    Less micro-management and allow for more creative ideas to be explored. There are intelligent employees who never have the opportunity to shine because of the way certain managers bully their employees.

    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.
