Pros

Loved the smaller company feel
Good benefits and 401K

Cons

Catty department with lots of gossip
Micromanagement in my department - but that depends on who your manager is. There are some great managers and departments at AppTec.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust employees to do their work without hovering over their shoulder.

    Poor pay compared to work load and other industry competitors. They rely heavily on fresh grads so they can pay them little

    Pros

    Good place to learn skills, especially for a new grad.

    Cons

    It was very obvious that you were a replaceable body at Wuxi. There wasn't development from within, and they would prefer to bring someone in from outside then promote the tech that's been working in the lab for 5+ years.
    it was best just to gain some skills and experience, then move on to a larger company for double the money.
