Pros

Charles River offers a competitive salary and great medical plan. Charles River offers an employees stock purchase plan. New hires start off with 3 weeks a year vacation.

Cons

Due to tough economic times the company is scaling back on its operations and employees. This is making it a very stresful time to be employed not knowing if you have a job day to day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management was always very fair and my best advicce is to try to comunnicate to the employees how the business is doing.

    Pros

    Good work hours, decent benefits, knowledgeable coworkers. The people you work with are dedicated and strive to do good work.

    Cons

    Management doesnt value employees, they constantly make their numbers by cutting the benefits of employees but raises are small even if you are a top performer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to focusing on the employees and they will continue to provide high quality. Constanting retraining new employees leads to mistakes.
