Pros

Convient location in RTP makes commuting easy. Offers chance for alternative transportation with bus and carpooling options for employees. On site shower facilities allow employees to bike to and from work. Management concerned with giving recognition and feedback appropriately. Flexible hours allows much freedom in the work day provided that work gets done before deadlines.

Cons

Unfair and restrictive environment to work in. Generally unfriendly co-workers. Crowded lab space and bureaucratic procedures to pass information to management. Additionally, political correct charged environment which hinders free thinking and promotes a "one way" mentality. Favoritism is often shown between managers and employees. Internal power struggle with certain age groups of employees as well.

Advice to Management

Change the workplace environment and address teamwork and cooperation between employees.
