Nothing ever changes at JAX West

In Vivo Technician (RA) (Former Employee)
Sacramento, CA

ProsGreat coworkers in In Vivo. Excellent experience for young tech's out of college.

ConsManagment keeps saying that things will change for the better, however, it usually changes for the worst. No follow up to any issues that the eployees have. Promises are not kept by upper managment. "Lab operational supervisors" hide out all day in an office with out supervising anything. NO upward mobilty.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagment keeps asking WHY so many people are unhappy and leaving, the answers are in front of you, you just need to follow up. There are opportunites in sacramento other than JAX; people will continue to leave until you value them. Stop blaming the workers for the faults of the managment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A need for change

    In Vivo Lab Technician II (RA II) (Former Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    I worked at Jackson Laboratory full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Learned a lot of techniques in a short period of time, by a really great trainer. The techs are the smartest/ambitious/social/friendly people I have… Cons: The only training program is for beginning techs, which is great, but there are other positions in the lab too that should have some sort… Advice to Senior Management: Be reasonable. For a company that is non-profit, you sure do focus on the "revenue" side of things. Bringing in as many projects… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
