    I have been working at Microbac Laboratories, Inc. full-time (More than a year)


    Team atmosphere is good. Shifts can be busy at times, but both the direct supervisor and director are great to work with. Management is understanding to personal needs.


    Would be nice to see quality in a more active role. Head of quality in onsite not often enough and local quality needs to be more involved.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees. Director does a great job at this and does good at connecting with staff.
