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

    Pros

    Health benefits are free for those that are single. Good vacation time as well.

    Cons

    Management is the definition of unprofessional and underqualified. Lack understanding that our generation doesn't just take hand outs, we want to work for promotions and have a sense of accomplishment. Transparent management, high turnover rate, little resources for training, zero follow through on commission and bonus payouts.
