    Pros

    Pays more than McD's.
    Ok for short term entry level while going to school or studying for GRE, grad school.
    Depending on department, can be flexible in arrival and ending time.
    Give you time to get up to speed after training at beginning.

    Want you to pump out work nonstop at fast pace.
    Cannot make any mistakes.
    Dirty and can be hazardous.
    Blame game.
    Drama and cliquey.
    Disconnect of management with employees.
    Lack of communication.
    1 hour lunches frown upon.
    Not enough equipment and constantly defective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What's more important than bottom line? Nothing for you guys. Fix the cons.

    I have been working at National Genetics Institute

    Pros

    The staff personnel are very supportive in allowing employees to pursue outside ambitions as long as it does not conflict with working schedule.

    Cons

    When it comes to management trust to their employees, I feel that it is lacking. Not all holidays are considered days off, and even if there are some, most of the time there has to be personnel working at the facility. Most staff are expected to work at least half of the weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust in your employees and offer better incentive than what is offered now. With the current situation, most employees want to leave. This would explain the high turnover rate.
