I have been working at R&D Systems

Pros

R&D Systems is a good company to start out in--they offer solid research and development positions for people straight out of college. The vast majority of people who work there seem very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.

Cons

The company is not the best place for someone to look for advancement without a terminal degree. It also does not invest in cutting-edge equipment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Individuals who I have come into contact with are friendly and supportive, but more positive feedback is encouraged when people go above and beyond their normal duties.

    Old fashion management at scientific level.

    I have been working at R&D Systems

    Pros

    Like this place. I was just an intern, so benefit packages don't really apply to me.

    Pretty professional environment--you'd get a lot of things done.
    Also, people are really nice!

    Cons

    coffee tastes really bad but it's free, so...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer more internships in different departments besides just the labs. e.g. IT, Marketing, Sales, etc.
