    Former Employee - Associate Scientist II in South Plainfield, NJ

    I worked at GENEWIZ full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The bench scientists are the best group of hardworking supportive people to work and interact with. They are in the trenches day in and day out keeping the ship afloat.

    Cons

    Very stressful, little to no break time, unpleasant people to deal with, the exception of the bench scientist. Pay is on the bottom level if not the worst against comparable positions with other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Illumina is the way to go.

    I have been working at GENEWIZ full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only reason I stay at this job is because of my coworkers. They are supportive and fun. They keep the mood light even when we're under pressure.

    Cons

    Very stressful, little to no break time, unpleasant people to deal with both *internal and external. *Sales representatives are rude and downright mean to the "little people" of the company. They make ridiculous demands and expect immediate compliance. Obviously they only care about money and not about the impression they make on their coworkers. Luckily, I'm not the one who works on commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better organization of the group and tasks will help the day run more smoothly. Training should be streamlined, as there is high turnaround and people that are not trained properly disrupt the flow.

    I have been working at GENEWIZ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy, high-growth sales opportunities. Service line is excellent and technical support is superior.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up in company unless you have exposure and political pull at headquarters

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and compensate appropriately. Little-to-no sales experience should not make the same as 4+ years experience

    Pros

    there always something to do, though it's waste of time. You have lots of rest time in meaningless meetings

    Cons

    You will be asked to do this and that for no credit. and manager are counting your time 10% of your time you can do this project, 15%of your time you can do that project, so you should be able to handle 5 project in one day!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    my valuable advice will not go for them

    Pros

    not alot of interaction with people. hours are short...paid well....friendly staff.

    Cons

    no benefits or insurance....no coverage for damage to car, not my ideal job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    we should each get separate key passes....and there should be some compensation for car damages or we should have a company car.
