I worked at MPI Research full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great place to work, and wonderful environment for all employees. The surpervisors were very supportive and were very personable. They took the time to listen to you and treated you fairly.

Cons

The training process was slow and limited. This howver was probably due to keeping production schedule.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the QC of your people up to snuff so that you get a great product for your clients.

    I worked at MPI Research

    Pros

    Training is available to those who seek it. While with MPI I expanded not only my skills in the lab, but attended courses on leadership, problem solving, Lean Six Sigma, etc. HR is amazing to deal with, the facility is enormous and mostly well maintained. Pay was good- but you do have to push for that raise.

    Cons

    Scheduling is an issue. Some weeks we worked from 5 am to midnight, 80 hours a week, and some weeks we were so slow we had to take on extra projects just to make 40.
    Layoffs are scary. In my time with MPI, there have been 4 series of layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with the study directors on scheduling. I understand that sponsors push to have it done NOW, but the quality decreases when your in life staff are exhausted and burned out. Bring back the cookouts! Having recreational activities promoted a sense of community that's missing these days.
