Unless you are a scientist, don't bother coming here

Pros

Better than average benefits in St. Louis, which is a sub-standard city to live in. Cheap, but sub-standard.

Cons

Lots of boys clubs, promotions to those who've been there the longest, not who work the hardest. Oh yeah, and if you don't have a science degree prepared to be treated like your job is "not as cool". Be prepared to endure yearly recurring (and boring as hell) training materials that are obviously geared at lab people.

Advice to Management

Please ask yourselves: How come if you manage to attract all the best talent around, why happened to make it become the greatest revolving door? Low retention, decreasing loyalties, people fleeing left and right.

    Pros

    You're treated as a full-time employee and offered all the same amenities (minus the medical/dental/401k/PTO benefits). Excellent learning opportunity for under graduates with moderate pay, but no benefits. If track record proves and networking proves well, there are multiple exchanges to be invited back for another co-op or a full-time position. They have a foosball and pingpong table. Not to mention a modernized gym with free membership. All the perks one would expect for a Fortune 500 company. They look out for their employees.

    Cons

    Like with every corporate company, the political warfare is on full-throttle. If you outperform, your name MAY will be rise up in the ranks, but you must over achieve 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an open communication channel.


  2. Great pay, good company.
