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

    I worked at Jackson Laboratory full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Managment 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 ManagementAdvice

    Managment 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.

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

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

    Pros

    There is a strong connection between coworkers.

    Cons

    The working conditions at Jax West are poor. The management does not care about the employees or the mice they are working with. This is different than Jax East, which seems like a good place to work and i have no idea why there is this disconnect between the two. There is little to no understanding of how science works. Jax West In Vivo group is the worst lab I have ever work at. I have never worked with a more stressed out, disorganized, demoralized group in my life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Money is not the only thing that matters in life. There are many labs, both professional and educational, that find a way to do research while keeping their employees satisfied with their work. If you could improve morale and separate the housekeeping from the actual science work, you could reduce turnover. When one of our coworkers leaves Jax, we all celebrate like someone just got out of jail. How is it that you don't understand how unhappy your employees are?
