Scientific expertise and technical creativity thrives, but limited by funding and bureaucracy

Biological Science Technician (Current Employee)

Prosprofessional development opportunities, work with state of the art technologies, scientific integrity is of high value, compensation is above average compared to similar jobs outside of government, regular performance reviews

Conspoor funding structures, poor work-life balance emphasis, advancement potential is heavily controlled by education level, top heavy management side

Advice to Senior ManagementThe creative process, collaboration, and productivity need to be demonstrably valued by reducing the competitive nature of the funding environment.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
