I worked at Santa Cruz Biotechnology full-time

Pros

I've had great experiences at this company. I have learned a lot and developed new skills to help me grow in my career. It's a friendly and relaxed environment, yet professional. If you look for opportunities to take on new projects, you will find them. Some interesting work is being done in these projects. Very stable company that has not scaled back or taken away benefits or perks even during the recession.

Cons

Other employees that slack and then complain they don't have anything new to do. Pay freeze is not the best, but understandable given the down global economy. I believe it is a temporary thing because that was not at all how it was at before the recession hit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to develop new projects and opportunities for employees to take on. Maybe deal more directly with those that don't have a good work ethic.

    I have been working at Santa Cruz Biotechnology full-time

    Pros

    Many possibilities to work on projects and to learn new areas of expertise. With many departments at the SC location, possibility of switching into different groups and learning new skill-sets! Young workforce and an active staff (company softball team, pick-up soccer games after work). Developed lifelong friends while at SCBT, plus the office is 4-blocks from the ocean(can't beat eating lunch and whale watching)!! Excellent vacation package!

    Cons

    Although the town of Santa Cruz has many options for outdoor activities(surfing, biking, running, etc), it would be great if our benefits package included a Gym membership to promote healthy lifestyle!
