Expect way too much from employees for too little pay.

Pros

Great coworkers. Flexibility with hours.

Cons

Training is very spotty. Safety should be more of a concern in the lab. Upper management is very out of touch with true conditions and quality within labs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on training your staff, defining job responsibilities, and ways to increase compensation for all non-managerial staff. You will never retain younger talent by working them too hard and compensating them at a below average rate. Otherwise, your company is simply a stepping stone for future careers with your competitors.

    Pros

    Some decent people work there. At least until their souls are sucked from their beings.

    Cons

    Will make salaried employees their slaves without blinking an eye.
    Will purposely bias employee reviews low so they don't have to give raises.
    Work/ life balance is fine as long as you don't want the life part.
    Management has no experience working as analysts in the lab, so they have no concept of what actually goes on in the laboratory on a day to day basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are not always "right" just because you are the boss. If someone who works 80 hours per week for 8 straight weeks and is so tired they can barely READ the results they are writing down, HIRE SOMEONE! Don't tell him he is inefficient with his time.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, wide variety of experience

    Cons

    Management is AWFUL. Competent decisions aren't possible, repeated layoffs almost never included managers responsible for sales, yet poor sales were cited as the reason for them. As a contract lab, EOM was the always bad, easily 12-18 hour days.
