    Quite a good choice for a decent start

    Senior Research Specialist (Former Employee) Peoria, IL

    ProsSmall project groups working on cancer, Alzheimer's, etc. Quite work place, with ample scope to overlap in multiple projects. Especially good when one has a career change in mind to core cellular and molecular biology techniques and biomedical sciences research.

    ConsPretty isolated location. Very limited opportunities in bio-related jobs in the neighborhood. Also, employee tuition benefits though applicable, but might be hard to avail as not many courses would be available in that small setup.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    BAD MEDICINE

    Case Manager HIV AIDS Clinic (Former Employee) Peoria, IL

    ProsLocated near my home.

    ConsCompletely unprofessional management at the HIAC AIDS clinic. Inappropriate boundaries between the management staff, and the clients. The MOST inappropriate standards that I have EVER experienced in a work environment. Unethical regarding compliance with the state standards for the program.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart over, with a new professionally trained management team.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
