    I have been working at Pace Analytical full-time (More than 3 years)


    Company cares about employees. Flexible schedule and willingness to work with employees to accommodate personal lives. I have seen company take donations of sick and vacation time to help those who need time off for emergencies. Also worked around my school schedule so that I could maintain full time status and continue to work.

    Actively trying to improve both work environment and customer experience. While this is a hard balance and will take years, Pace is trying to make work enjoyable for employees and results desirable for customers. Accepting of new ideas and CEO is involved with each lab. His yearly visits are always informative and show his interest in everyone's well being.

    Room for advancement and decent raises. The industry does not pay well as a whole, but Pace pays well. Yearly raises of 3% are nothing to scoff at in this economy. I have been with Pace 3 years and have had 2 promotions on top of yearly raises. You have to be willing to start with the crappy jobs and work your way up though!!

    Great coworkers! Fun and personalities are encouraged

    Bench level employees and SR management get it!


    Middle management has slight disconnect: budget is over valued and opportunity costs are not taken into consideration.

    Need to keep long term gains into consideration as well as short term.

    Sales needs to join the "team" and not see themselves as an outside group.

    Advice to Management

    Continue improving: 3P, lean, and best practices are working!
    Promote and hire based on ability not seniority (10 years as an analyst does not always equate to a great manager).

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Pace Analytical (Minneapolis, MN).


    Had 3 interviews for my role. Pretty informal and really friendly. Questions were fair and not too difficult. They got back to me really quickly and were very clear about next steps.
