Pros

Benefits are extremely good for a company of its size. Technology has historically been cutting edge and interesting Flexible working hours Independence and hands-off supervision by line managers

Cons

Emergence of competitive technologies put downward pressure on stock Advancement from junior to senior science positions is difficult or impossible

Advice to Management

Recent changes to course of product development - focusing on doing fewer things, but doing them better - was a positive and welcome change. Please be very careful about selecting instrumentation vendors for manufacturing branded equipment; we suffer for their bad decisions or poor workmanship
