Pros

Very equipped lab. A lot of instruments you can actually learn to use. Supplies is never an issue if you ever needed something for a task.

Cons

Management does not understand how to appreciate contractors and treat you like dirt. You need every sense of political skills there to survive and not get into drama or trouble. Management in DDS does not appreciate people who have a real passion for science and do not know how to accommodate people who just want to finish their work professionally, flawlessly and efficiently. Contractors who left the company because of finding another job were often be told to leave the day of giving their two weeks notice to managers.

Advice to Management

Try to keep productive "A+" grade people. Don't keep hiring "B" managers whose goal is only to expand territories and treat contractors like enemies. You might also want to put in some EQ (emotional quotient) training for people managers to avoid decisions made based on ego or anger instead of rational professional judgement.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Vacation, Time-Off, Great Environment.

    Cons

    Schedule are iffy. Once you have one your going to be sticking with that schedule for a while. Moving up in career is questionable, and job can get repetitive
