    Pros

    Growth opportunities, working with the best in the city, wide range of opportunities to change field ie: GI to Endo as support staff.

    Cons

    Not being heard. Management is untouchable. If you have a bad/unethical manager, nothing will be done about it.

    Advice to Management

    Primary Care should pay closer attention to there practices. The things that go on those offices is very unprofessional.


  6. Great organizational culture

    Pros

    Great project and lab environment (depends on laboratory and I am lucky).

    Cons

    No benefits for Postdoctoral fellows. Not great support for postdocs that need to find a job. You are basically on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Give more benefits to postdoctoral fellows, and more support for their next step to find a job.

    excellent colleagues, great learning resources, great fcilities

    Cons

    relatively low salaries for non faculty, favoritism!!

    Advice to Management

    please keep older, long term employees in mind. If we are given learning opportunities, you've got us for life!!

    Pros

    Great company ethos, friendly, good benefits, many jobs to aspire to internally. Supportive culture, education benefits foster advancement. If you know where you want to go in medical, this job can help you get there. Many nursing students, premed students and biology majors begin here. Many lab technologists start as lab techs while studying then transition fairly easily to internal roles.

    Cons

    Low starting but good relative to cost of living, parking is scarce and expensive. Smaller city but still much to offer relative to size. Harsh winters.


  11. Lab Technician - Depends on PI

    Pros

    As a lab tech the work is not difficult but there are a lot of chances to expand your skill set. Flexible hours depending on your supervisor and experiments that are going on.

    Cons

    Training, leadership possibilities, etc. depends on your lab PI. In my experience if you want more responsibility you have to seek it and learn new techniques to get put on more projects. Again, this depends on your supervisor, but in the lab I worked in it was difficult for technicians to get more responsibility which limited the chances of getting mentioned in published papers. Pay is low but on par for lab techs and definitely depends on individual lab funding.

    Advice to Management

    Include techs on published papers as authors! We do a lot of work!
