I worked at Charles River Laboratories

Pros

The quality of work and personal life is good at Charles River Laboratories. Work hours are flexible and workload is not too bad (since there are ebbs and flows at every job). Everyone cares about the work that they do and the people are great to work with.

Cons

Although work life at Charles River Laboratories is good, this is really the only scientific company in Sparks/Reno outside of UNR or DRI (both academically oriented) to work at. Therefore, in order to find another job I had to move out of the area.

    I worked at Charles River Laboratories

    Pros

    SOME people were nice to work with.
    Good for training but most people leave straight away.

    Cons

    Pay was dreadful
    Forced overtime with reduced overtime pay
    Higher management didn't have a clue what they were doing.
    Often promoted people who weren't qualified to avoid paying them overtime.
    They seem to favour the people who do less work - harder workers end up picking up the pieces.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
