    Great company, bonehead HR.

    Chemist I (Former Employee)
    Florence, SC

    ProsLots of freedom, great perks and decent pay. The work is intense but challenging(i.e. fun) and they give you just enough rope to hang yourself with. The atmosphere is that of a small company where everyone knows each other and the workforce is incredibly diverse.

    ConsHR is run by a complete ditz who slept her way into her position. Be prepared to deal with some of the most moronic policies you've ever seen. If you don't mind being talked to like you are a toddler, everything else about this company is great.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lots to learn, little return

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Florence, SC

    ProsGet a lot of hands on experience with instrumentation and repairing instruments. Great place to learn when starting your career. Great health insurance.

    ConsMay take you 6 years to get a 2 year raise, pay is well below the avg for the field, project managers have a horrible time getting materials in a timely manner, meaning you then need to rush through the process of getting raw materials to the plant which has lead to errors on multiple occasions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a serious look on how to retain employees.

    IRIX is a great place to gain experience in the pharmaceutical industry.

    Principal Scientist (Current Employee)
    Florence, SC

    ProsGreat working environment and the health care benefits are unmatched. Extremely loyal to employees with competitive salaries. Because it is a CRO the amount of experience you will get working for IRIX is very beneficial for beginning a career.

    ConsSince it is a smaller company, there is not much room for upward movement.
