    Pros

    Excellent work environment with extraordinary benefits. Facilities are continuously improving as the business grows and expands. Madison is a great place to live and explore.

    Cons

    Compensation could be below industry standards considering the cost of living in Madison. The winter walks between buildings requires bundling up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in the internal resources and the employees. Continue to expand the scope of product offerings and the innovative technology.

    Pros

    As a whole, Promega does a good job of making sure its employees are happy and enjoying their jobs. There are excellent facilities (gyms in almost all buildings, cafeterias with quite good options, available massage therapy/whirlpool use, and much more). I'm most impressed by the friendly people that work here.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to get hired/the hiring process can be pretty long and taxing. Many new employees are hired as "project" employees, which are 6-month positions without benefits; however, many project employees do get hired on permanently.

    Pros

    Amazing company culture, you are valued as a person and are not just treated as a number, you are given the tools you need to be successful,dynamic career growth is available, as a private company we are not a slave to share-holders, people feel good about the work they do, employees are happy which makes it an enjoyable place to be every day, wonderful work life balance,

    Cons

    You need to be able to roll with the punches here or you will be frustrated- things change quickly in this industry and that can be difficult at first

    Advice to Management

    Work to protect Promega's culture as the company continues to grow

    Pros

    Collaborative place to work. Your opinions matter and you will be given all the tools you need to succeed. They treat their employees very well. The leadership team is top notch and very supportive of career goals. The company is expanding rapidly and Mr. Linton is extremely committed to growing to company and expanding Promega's footprint on the biotech community. Overall, the relationships I built while I was there were extremely valuable and I grew as a professional and a person while I was there.

    Cons

    Promotions will be slow but steady if you prove yourself.
