    Pros

    Benefits... that is really about it. Unfortunately those are going away too!

    Cons

    As mentioned, the benefits were good, but are dwindling away. The management is just terrible.The work environment is terrible too as you have to defend your job every time you talk to your manager. The management treats employees with no dignity or respect at all. There were many occasions where employees are berated in the middle of the lab simply because the manager was in a bad mood. There is no direction to the company as their goals change on a daily basis. Skilled and knowledgeable employees are looked down upon... actually, they are fired. There is no room for advancement within the company. They have told employees on many occasions that they do not want people there more than two years. There are also no raises whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat employees as if they are human! Avoid this company at all costs!
