ProsHighest concentration of PhD's you'll ever find in the world. There' s a specialist in every subject there.

ConsPaperwork upon paperwork. If you're a foreign national, admire the number of safety blocks they put that slows you down considerably.

Advice to Senior ManagementLabs get slowed down having to salvage old machinery for screws of all things. Just buy all the basic stuff and give it to each lab.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
