    I worked at Microbac Laboratories, Inc. full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Really great people. Kind of like after a plane crash when survivors bond.
    Nice "Resume Builder" until you find something else.
    Flexible schedule

    Cons

    Possibly the worst work/life balance available.
    Very Very poor upper management.
    Facilities needed updating 10 years ago.
    Terrible Health Care
    Management loves to meet....and talk abut doing things.
    Management has no idea how any of this really works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to realize what each individual lab does well, and focus on that. Instead of completely ignoring the non-glamorous work that is Environmental, and trying to be something they aren't. Training and Quality aren't free, and they should invest in their people, not new logos. Talk is cheap. Your employees aren't as dumb, nor as satisfied as you think they are. Over 50% of the lab personnel where I worked were actively looking for another job.

    I worked at Microbac Laboratories, Inc. full-time

    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.
