Pros

Awesome annual company picnics. Great health benefit package. Opportunity for learning many different aspects of biotech industry. Company is small enough that a Scientist (if necessary or desired) can wear many hats, and learn so much more. Amresco recognizes a need for scientists to attend trade shows and support the technical/ sales team.

Cons

The salary for advanced scientist is about 30% lower than the standard for that area.

Advice to Management

Determine and clarify the advancement path in the company and stick to it! if there is no advancement (for a particular position), than state so. It is very demoralizing to see somebody who appears less qualified in every aspect, advance.

    Pros

    AMRESCO is an industry leader in the life science industry. They are continuosly developing new products for DNA and RNA research that will improve quality of outcomes and decreasing the time of the research from start to finish. They also manufacture chemicals specific to customer needs.

    Cons

    AMRESCO has four different buildings so coordinating meetings for people from the different areas is difficult. Communication between departments needs to improve and some of the facilities need to be updated. Certain departments tend to micro manage and compensation tends to be on the low side. Employee bonuses are tied to other departments which means they are rarely paid out and can cause animosity between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Do not tie employee bonus incentives to other departments productivity. One department could be performing at a high level but because another department performs poorly they are penalized because they will not receive a bonus. This bonus structure is actually a disincentive for employees. I would suggest having two tiers- one for department performance and another bonus tied to overall company performance.

    Our parent company VWR has made extensive investments in improving facilities in the past couple of years since this review was written. We now have five buildings.
