Pros

All of the people I worked with at Promega were interested in strong relationships and getting a good product out to customers. Technical Support is considered VERY important and this leads to happier customers. Most groups within the organization see career path as a key component to keeping their folks happy.

Cons

Promega isn't always the highest paying company in biotech. There is variability in the strength of work-life balance between different areas of the company.

    Pros

    Wonderful work environment. Everyone is friendly and welcoming and they are accepting of college students who are thriving to learn. Not only a great place to work, but a great place to learn.

    Cons

    Very hard to get hired in R&D unless you have a Master's or PhD. Many of the interns and project employees are found through company connections, making it hard for anyone not connected to get in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. You do an excellent job at motivating employees and creating a place where you can work and feel respected.

    Family atmosphere is more like a small town environment.

    Pros

    Learned alot about production and performing independentaly. People can be nice and are generally professional ! Nice facilities, good curb appeal and some of the perks are nice, but realize its a PR stunt. The CEO knows marketing and it shows especially with the media.

    Cons

    Croonizism is high, and seniority seems to win out. Don't correct people when they are wrong because they will make your life hard. High number of older workers who happen to be insecure with their positions and are often forgetfull about directions or what they said or didn't say. Not much accountability for certain individuals and integrity is questionable.

    Advice to Management

    None, because I know most of the management will retire shortly and are only going to do enough to get by and aren't able to or just don't want to change. Advice to possible buyers of the company...has good marketing, a decent product line, good R&D, but needs alot of cGMP work and guidance. Their QA is a joke!
