    Pros

    In general the people are great, small company politics as usual are a positive and negative. Day to day perks like company-wide activities and happy hours. Frustrations with being a contractor (see "cons") at least were not part of daily lab work; same responsibilities as my FTE peers, same recognition within the group (until it came to compensation or training / travel).

    Cons

    Was hired in 2010 as a contractor (through Aerotek), made the same hourly rate over the 2.5 yrs I spent at the company. A hiring freeze was initiated within a few months of my start date, so the "we always convert to FTE within 6-12 months" turned into a "sorry, we would if we could, but we won't". I watched my fellow contractors leave out of frustration one by one, until it was my turn to say goodbye too. Upper management made it clear through their actions / policies that contractors (with the same years of experience within the company) were not considered equal to FTEs.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that your hard-working contractors are fully aware they are being treated like second class employees. A welcome change would be built in salary increases after say... 2 years of faithful service as a contractor. Or just hire them already.

  2. Like anywhere, it has its good days and bad days

    I have been working at Morphotek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule
    Weather delays/closures when warranted
    Vacation allowance is ok

    Cons

    Favoritism
    Silos exist
    Squeaky wheel mentality when that isn't always the best solution

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow those with direct access to your office or the loudest voice be the only voice you hear
