    Good place to work instead ?

    Supervisor does not have full knowledge and experienced to run lab, also she does not have real manner to talk to the workers.
    She has master degree don't know which subject from USA, so they hire her as Supervisor.
    She act as illiterate. Management have complete knowledge and are involve but never take any action about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management have to wake up instead sleeping and try to act as they supposed to act.
