I worked at Lab Four full-time for less than a year

Pros

They recognize when people have valuable skills and will give them a lot of responsibility.

Cons

I was promised a raise at my 6 month evaluation ($1-$5 per hour increase based on performance). After a glowing review and talks of my future with the company, I had to bring up the subject about a salary increase and the owner of the company told me, "We'd like to pay you more, but it's not in the budget." I was fired a month later for "performance not up to Lab Four standards."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees with respect and pay them a decent wage.

    I have been working at Lab Four full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They're extremely innovative in what they're doing, bend over backwards for students, and the management cares about the employees. They're also fair in their expectations, even though they expect a lot.

    Cons

    It's very challenging and extremely fast paced. They have really high expectations. This is not the kind of job you get if you just want a paycheck... you have to believe in what they're doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Screen employees a little harder... this environment is not for everyone! It really takes a certain amount of creativity and adaptability to really succeed here.
