    Former Employee - Associate Laboratory Technician in Marietta, GA
    Former Employee - Associate Laboratory Technician in Marietta, GA

    I worked at WuXi AppTec full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Time off was flexible. Able to make up hours and come in on off days. Coworkers were generally good people. Pay is very low for the work expected of you.

    Cons

    Management is completely ignorant to what goes on in their departments. Leadership s nonexistent. Employees are not valued. Training is not managed properly. Individuals are hired and not properly trained until mistakes occur. Turn over is extremely high because of the low pay and lack of appreciation for good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more hands on in your department. An employee should never ask you something and you not know the answer or know where to get the answer. That makes you look incompetent and it makes your employees doubt your abilities as their manager. Too many managers know just as much or even less than the employees under them. That is unacceptable, not to mention unprofessional.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, relaxed atmosphere. Lots of work but not unreasonable. Management doesn't micromanage. Benefits are pretty decent. Allowed to take off time when needed as long as you schedule in advance.

    Cons

    Negative employees. Really people? It is a job. It means you come here to work. You earn your way. Quit expecting it to be handed to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the negative people. Most of us like our jobs.
