    I worked at Southern Petroleum Laboratories full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great entry-level positions, lax management, able to create your own hours

    Cons

    Minimal promotion potential, wage, culture as a whole really struggled because of a very technical-minded environment, not much camaraderie.
