Entry level company, not a career destination

Chemist (Former Employee)
Lansing, MI

ProsThis is a good entry level place to get into quickly and punch out one year of GMP/ISO manufacturing if you're straight out of school.

ConsLittle room for job advancement, very little actual innovation going on as opposed to expanding the applications of existing technologies, and the salaries are absolutely dismal. Normally industry is supposed to be less interesting but higher paying than academia, but in this case quite a few Michigan State graduate students probably get a higher stipend than their industry counterparts. The scientific literacy of most employees is questionable at best.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop worrying about turnover. Despite the intimidating descriptions and lingo, the job tasks are easy enough for most community college students to do, so just accept that you can have a steady stream of people grabbing their entry level experience and stop acting mystified by the high turnover.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fair Pay for a 40 hr wk. But as management you are consistently expected to run understaffed and have no home life.
