I worked at Charles River Laboratories full-time (More than 3 years)
Strong strategic focus. Tough ride to come back from the 2008 market crash. Rising star. Reasonable performance for a highly competitive service industry. Great culture.
Tough to be competitive on salaries with Pharma in a services business, particularly as markets recovered.
Advice to Management
Continue growing cores. Consider divestiture of non-core businesses to ensure they're growth are not constrained by cash, otherwise committed to cores.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Charles River Laboratories (Columbia, MD) in November 2017.
Initial phone screening interview with recruiter. Recruiter emailed me after seeing my CV at a conference Employment Center and set up a time to call me. Recruiter was timely and friendly.
