    Pros

    Bigger name analytical company to get entry level experience after college

    Cons

    1. Would not advise for mid-career personnel - EAG offers jobs, not careers, there is rarely any growth for a particular position, partly due to management and the other part due to business nature.
    2. Management lack technical background (and interest) in analytical techniques and instrumentations, therefore it's a big turnoff for anyone who's passionate in techniques and instrumentations development since no one is going to approve of innovative methods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open minded and accept constructive confrontation!

    Pros

    Fellow employees are fine. Management are the problem. Employees and management are very knowledgeable in their field.

    Cons

    CRO lab. Management regard employees as peons and have instituted a company culture more akin to a correctional facility than a team environment. Some groups within the company are better then others. One of the directors is notorious, never loses an opportunity to vent frustration, has a very poor or possibly absent sense of personal boundaries, lacks respect for fellow human beings and is to be avoided. Beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to say. They have been doing it a long tome and must be hard for them to change. Also they are successful with this punitive model.

    I have been working at Evans Analytical Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people and good personal working conditions between lower level employees.

    Cons

    Upper Management is focused on strange things that seem suspicious. There does not seem to be any intelligent focus on growing the company, or any good vision of who the company wants to be. There was a focus on buying businesses, but not a good core strategy. It appears upper management is totally focused on playing up to the investment group that owns much of the company, and not on the company itself. It is if they are trying to the exclusion of all els, to make the company a good "property" for some other investor to buy. A modern warmed over version of corporate raiders. Haven't gotten a raise in five years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage the company. Care about the employees, treat them as your most important commodity. Figure out what you want to do and how/where you want to grow in business, and invest in it.
