A long time there, but a disappointing downward spiral.

I worked at Accutest Laboratories full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I believe it is a good place to start a science career right out of college. (in other words, get your foot in the door) Opportunity to work with the best science equipment in the industry.
Fun, supportive, helpful coworkers. Great mix of age ranges and knowledgeable senior
staff members that can figure out anything and are great mentors.

Cons

It appears that only way to get a raise is to be threaten to quit and have an offer from an other employer to match. Even accepting "promotions" leaves one at their current salary
level which looks like a strong incentive not to change. Managers spend an inordinate time with favorites and claim they are focused on performance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Yes, this is a chemistry lab, but acknowledge some social issues like food drives. And huh,
an environmental company that doesn't even bat an eye for "Earth Day" ?
