I have been working at Charles River Laboratories full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pays overtime, lot of different career opportunities and specialties.

Need to be within a "circle of friends" in order for advancement. Selected staff are "protected" from being laid off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care more about the staff, reduce forced overtime, equal opportunity for advancement, transparency.
