I have been working at Jackson Laboratory
Pros – The people that I work with are some of the best technicians I've ever worked with. Very skilled technicians, hard working, and great talent. The job duties itself are pretty amazing you learn a lot about a lot of things. The work load is really crazy. Its a sink or swim type of place.
Cons – Upper management are the worst. Bar Harbor I hear is a great place to work, but thats not the case in sacramento. You have to beg for supplies that you need. People are expected to over see 10-15 different studies, and do technical work and not make mistakes. Management has said they were going to make changes to make the technicians life better. . . lies! Really the worst thing is that we are over worked and underpaid. Under appreciated is the life at Jax -west.
Advice to Senior Management – Appreciate your staff! You cant expect to work people this hard and have them not make mistakes. Stop lying to your staff about what your going to do, In fact, stop having meeting all together. nothing gets accomplished. nothing ever changes. why have them? Communicate with your technicians better; Fire people that are dead weight, and hire people that can succeed at a sink or swim job. Pay your employee's more. Being a non-profit isn't an excuse to treat people like this. The education system seems to be able able to pay more than you with WAY less expectations. And the education system is talking about cutting PE programs because of lack of money. how can they pay signifigantly more than jax? You cant make things better without spending more money. either hire more staff (and make work conditions better) or pay us more. stop thinking about your bottom line so much. . . your a non-profit remember!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
