I worked at Charles River Laboratories full-time (more than an year)

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.
