    Pros

    Very lenient, minimal micro-managing, org chart is efficient, lots of room for improvement but not so much that you cannot get work done.

    Cons

    Some things are not "industry standard" as they should be. Managers cut corners to save money. Global corporation is not integrated well at US sites.

    Cons

    Poor salary.
    No career opportunities.
    Laboratories not fit for chemical work. Have not been updated for ca 30 years.

    People often suffer from “burn-out” disorders or are sick due to the working environment, social and physical.
