I worked at Promega

Pros

Great benefits, compensation and work environment. Tremendous flexibility in schedule and lifestyle. Great rate of technology adoption and innovation. Situated in an excellent community in Wisconsin - finanacially stable and culturally mixed. Incredible, amazing, intelligent people.

Cons

Workers are on their own with regards to career advancement. Money is provided for professional development which is great, but mentoring, guidance and intervention for troubled employees is completely absent. Absolutely no provision for promotion or advancement other than to leave the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase support in Human Resources to encourage for Professional Development and intervention for workers who are stuck in non-productive patterns.
