I have been working at Charles River Laboratories

Pros

Experience. Will hire out of college. Immediate supervisors are excellent.

Cons

Management has no respect for employees. View us as disposable and make sure we know it. Work gets in the way of personal life often. Rampant favoritism and most peoplearent comfortable taking concerns to hr on site. Often times nothing happens even if it's a repeated complaint by multiple people..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leave and let someone better suited take over.

    I have been working at Charles River Laboratories

    Pros

    has very good vacation package (3 weeks) with the potential for 4 if you have 1 week roll over from the following year. A great amount of responsibility in this job is required even for new green employees. I have learned so much here in the 5 years i have worked here because management is so hands off.

    Cons

    No communication between upper management and the lab (in which is this extremely important since there is no Supervisor). Management is also out of touch with the lab and constantly sets high demands on them even with limited resources in a GMP world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your workers they do know what they are talking about and are knowledgeable on what they do.

    I have been working at Charles River Laboratories

    Pros

    some parts of the company may provide opportunities for growth. Overall, not the place for scientists. A pharmaceutical company may be the preferred if your interest is in research.

    Cons

    the company does not value scientists. Low salaries and not so great prospects for upward movement. A CRO environment may not be ideal for conducting pure research.
