Friendly, close-knit organization

Senior Research Assistant (Current Employee) Saint Louis, MO

ProsGood benefits. Small enough you feel like part of a community. I have always had great flexibility in my jobs regarding leave and hours.

ConsLack of promotion opportunities for research personnel. You can either be a research assistant or senior research assistant and that's it. Many principal investigators either don't have the funding to offer suitable compensation for senior personnel or are unwilling to do so, preferring to hire cheaper, less experienced staff. If you don't ask for the salary you really want when first hired, It is very difficult to get any kind of significant increase, even with a promotion to senior level research assistant.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow more flexibility for compensation for research personnel.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
