    I have been working at TRLabs

    Pros

    There is some interesting work, with much independence. There are some nice people to work with.

    Cons

    The funding is often limited, and there isn't much direction or communication from management.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at TRLabs

    Pros

    - Space to sit
    - work PC
    - Lighting
    - Washroom
    - Fridge
    - TV
    - some old lab tools

    Cons

    - Management is extremely incapable and incompetent
    - Senior staff running the company are the ones who failed to get decent jobs elsewhere, so here they act like emperors and can show immense disrespect towards junior staff

    - As a tech. incubation company, one would expect creativity is encouraged. Not here!
    - Jobs don't match job descriptions!!

    - Much of the work not relevant to industry
    - Survives on government grants, and the government will not fund this organization forever for lack of industry relevance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No hope if things go at the current rate.

    - Mgt. needs major change and company needs to refocus its goals; else
    - Shut down the company and save taxpayer's money

    I worked at TRLabs

    Pros

    Great team members and great facilities

    Cons

    Poor financial rewards, management does not appear to care much about the process, just the end results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take a better interest in the everyday life of your employees, even if you do not mean it, as it will help to improve morale.
