I worked at Charles River Laboratories full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

It is a good place to obtain experience, there was always plenty of overtime, more than you would like at some times. The supervisors and project managers were, for the most part, friendly and helpful. The start times are flexible.

Cons

Although, It is relatively simple to move to another department to gain new skills there is not a lot of possibility for promotion. The work environment can be too casual.
