Pros

Competitive compensation. Good health/vision/dental/401K options (and more) for you and your family, plus life insurance provided by the company at no charge. Free meals served 3x per week, 7 days a week. Unlimited snack bars all the time and always very stocked. Can call security if you want take-out in the middle of the night. Fast-paced, highly productive, upbeat attitude throughout. Very personal because it's a startup. Can see the company growing each week, which is highly encouraging.

Cons

Hours can be long, but that's the story with any lab position. It goes by so quickly, I hardly ever notice. It's still a startup, which means there can be lack of organization. However, there are so many bright minds that the issue is noticed and resolved as quickly as it came up. It's exciting to watch things fall into place and be a part of the company solidifying.

Advice to Management

None that I can think of. I'm very excited about the future of this company. It is headed in a good directions because upper management has such good motives.

    Pros

    The pros are that you receive benefits from day one and the pay is above average.

    Cons

    Management needs to all be let go and new, better leadership be brought in. This is the worst job as far as management that I have ever had. No leadership, poor communication, favoritism game, no understanding, all management talks poorly about employees to other people. Ridiculous expectations with very poor, unprofessional training. The interview said one thing about the job itself, then once put in the field it was completely different. Things dont get communicated properly then once you make a mistake management gets upset. Company has no protocol if you stick yourself with a needle. Expected to bend over backwards and be beyond flexible with hours and going to all these different locations with little to no recognition and reward. And if you dont want to work 100 hours a week you wont be a favorite!

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate better and connect with employees regularly instead of throwing them out to the wolves and stop playing favorites!

    Pros

    Good pay, great coworkers on the bench

    Cons

    Not very organized, not a lot of feedback from management (they are all over the place), poor communication across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees more, hire more qualified candidates to help meet hard deadlines.
