    Pros

    Very encouraging and positive environment. Got to know other employees well and felt team spirit. Immeadiate supervisor appreciated my efforts and treatedly me fairly.

    Cons

    As long as everything is going great, no worries. But when things started to slide, the team disappeared. Felt abandoned at the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to figure why problems are there and work to address them if you value keeping employees.

    I have been working at Charles River Laboratories full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay. 8 holidays two floating. Out early Fridays.

    Cons

    Low start pay. Slow to give raises. No incentives for education. Wont work around a school schedule. Have to earn time off or repay if you leave before the end of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage education inside the company! Flexible schedules and less stress on improving time at each task. Quality does not mean speed. Too much management on too many unnecessary levels. Micro managing is so unnecessary. Everyone can do thier own job and if they cant they shouldnt be employees any longer.
