I worked at Charles River Laboratories

Pros

The learning experience in invaluable

Cons

Very poisonous work environment. The management style utilized across the board is personal and highly based on favouritism. This is highly expected though when you place people with no manegerial skills in the wrong place. So, bottom line if you want to get up the lader, you need to polish your brown-nosing skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Listen to what your employees are saying without holding a grudge
- Take management courses
- Simply be faire

    Pros

    Great management team, great training, very long term employees, everyone is willing to help no matter what their job & business group

    Cons

    The company continues to grow, so it is hard to know all of the companies capabilities. I don't think this is a "con" though, just something that requires me to stay on my toes!
