Excellent hours, low pay

Junior Specialist (Current Employee) Davis, CA

ProsGreat hours, it's research so a lot depends on your PI. If you can consistently get results from your experiments and keep your PI happy, then it's a low-stress job.

ConsIf your PI is bad, then Godspeed. You need to consistently produce results, or else you're out of a job. Sometimes the projects you get go nowhere, and you have to start over from scratch. There's not a lot of room for job advancement without an advanced degree

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to understand that your employees aren't miracle workers, and that things aren't always going to work the first time - in fact, they rarely do.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
