    Former Employee - Culture Specialist in Taylorsville, UT

    I worked at Nelson Labs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Caring ownership, excellent support staff, and co-workers that make the workday enjoyable. Upward mobility is guaranteed to employees who put in a good effort. I started out as a entry level media prep technician, and ended up a media QC analyst and culture specialist.

    Cons

    It would be nice if they had satellite locations. I had to move to Arizona to finish my schooling and have since worked for two other laboratories. I'm not sure I will ever again find an employer like Nelson Labs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Employees can tell when leadership truly cares for the personal wellbeing of their staff.

    Pros

    Friendly staff
    Fun environment
    Management visibility to all staff.

    What may lack in industry pay is compensated well.

    Keep the small company feel as you grow to over 500 employees.

    I worked at Nelson Labs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really good perks and great people to work with. The team I worked on was awesome.

    Cons

    Have to play the corporate ladder game to get anywhere. CEO says he wants honest feedback, but he doesn't handle it well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't only look at those who play the game. There are a lot of great employees who are overlooked because they aren't in your face all the time.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, company culture.....although it has gone down hill the last few years as the company has grown.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to appreciate it's employees, everyone is replaceable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervisors don't like to promote because they don't want to be replaced, allow anyone to complete the study director track.

    I worked at Nelson Labs

    Pros

    They have nice benefits, and it is pretty easy to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Not the most challenging work. I felt like I could have done the job right out of high school. The senior management gives a lot of lip service to caring about what employees think, but they don't show it in their actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some advice from your lower level employees once and a while. Also, don't let good people go just because you don't want to pay them more.

    Good luck
