    I worked at Life Extension Foundation full-time

    Pros

    - health benefits
    - bonus (albeit not well structured)
    - some of middle management are understanding and try to promote good workers (but can't override opinions of managers above them who may not even know the worker in question)

    Cons

    - no professional growth unless you are a 'friend' of someone higher up (ie. you better kiss some serious butt)
    - experience and education is often ignored
    - salary not equitable - those who do most work get lower pay than slackers
    - bonus structure not equitable - based on subjective opinions of managers rather than actual measurable achievements
    - upper management really does NOT want employee feedback - watch out if you give it!!
    - management egos are HUGE!
    - lot of unprofessional behavior

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop hiring people with no experience who are 'friends' of current employees. stop promoting people with no experience. look for employees who want to grow with the company. listen to employee feedback and insights - often where there is smoke there IS fire. don't let your customers harass employees....the customer is NOT always right when they are verbally abusive.

    I survived as long as I did because of great colleagues and a couple great mid-level managers/supervisors.

    Pros

    Employer paid health insurance
    Flexible schedule
    Annual performance bonus
    A number of high caliber people
    Frequent opportunities for overtime pay
    Product and lab discounts
    Extensive training

    Cons

    The pay is not equitable (hone your negotiation skills)
    High stress
    Hyper-focus on a single error; minimal attention to what is consistently done right
    Informed indifference by senior and mid-level managers of unprofessional behavior
    Tolerance and reward for abusive customers
    Management says they value employee feedback, but the reality is they only value feedback that reflects their opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consult your front line employees for solutions as they actually deal with the problems. Change for the sake of change is not a savvy business practice.
