Pros

Interaction with animals and the latest in cleaning equipment concerning research labs. Cool team orientated work atmosphere.

Cons

Supervisors have very little concern for ground level employees. You come into contact with varied health risks, but pay is very meager despite this fact.

Advice to Management

Get a backbone and listen to the concerns of employees and don't just focus on being concerned with your own job and promotions.

    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 Management

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


  2. Good place to start

    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 Management

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