Pros

Excellent benefits, and work environment. sometimes challenging however not particularly stressful.

Cons

The scientific end of the operation, not really R&D, more development, was very arrogant and brittle. they tried to manage engineering efforts however did so poorly resulting in ten to fifteen year old designs that never improved. Manufacturing was always left hanging. They often would comment in terms of their importance, referring to all other functions and people as "rote" or not significant- Not team players!

Advice to Management

They need to decide whether or not the company is going to grow, and if so get out of the way and hire the key operations, engineering, and yes, R&D staff that will allow for unfettered growth. Too much old baggage with the current executive management team.

    Pros

    I considered leaving several times because I was overwhelmed and overworked.... But at the end of the day, they knew and they cared and they were trying to do something about it...
    Great team and company.
    Awesome work environment.
    Steady workload
    Learning encouraged

    Cons

    Bought out
    Big abaxis only wants sales
    All employees were dropped on their behinds like it was no big deal, brush your shoulders off....

    Advice to Management

    Know your techs, I knew how to fix half your problems in under a week, but I read people better than most.
    Amazing guy, honestly. Always willing to teach if you were willing to learn.

    Pros

    Work hours are flexible and colleagues are helpful. The management seems to be trying to move company to greater height.

    Cons

    Some people have been here for a long time and not a great risk taker. Changes can be slow at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Company is moving in the right direction.
