    I have been working at Absorption Systems full-time

    Pros

    Definitely a place where you can learn and there is no bias towards someone trying to re-enter the workforce. Sometimes I am super busy and other times I'm not. The salary is about average but the benefits seem to be better than other companies (except for dental rates). Atmosphere is friendly.

    Cons

    Dental rates, executive leadership could tell us more about the company

    Advice to Management

    Executive leaders should improve their relationships with the lower levels.

      I have been working at Absorption Systems part-time

      Pros

      Great people to work with.

      Cons

      The business side doesn't always do a great job of communicating with the science side of the company. Especially around timelines of when things can realistically get done.

      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Absorption Systems full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      With a small company you definitely feel capable of making a bigger impact, especially since you wear multiple hats.

      Cons

      The compensation is horrible and really isn't competitive with what is out there. As a result many employees come here to get experience and leave to other jobs that will pay more. The bonus system is a bit odd and with sales it is capped.

      Advice to Management

      Invest in those who have stayed and remain loyal to the company.

      I have been working at Absorption Systems full-time

      Pros

      People are nice and supportive, benefits are above average, and you learn a lot.

      Cons

      Underpaid. If you are not a scientist or 'higher up' you are treated like you're disposable and the higher ups don't really care about you. They like to overwork their employees.

      Advice to Management

      If you pay your employees well (or at least offer bonuses) they will usually be happier and more productive....

      I have been working at Absorption Systems full-time

      Pros

      Growing into new areas of research support, innovative ideas for new challenges, good comradery and team player atmosphere between mid-mgt and support staff. Strong on customer service, and many strong scientific, analytical & operations people keep things running smoothly, despite the fast pace.

      Cons

      Many decisions channel through one person; can be a bottleneck, and also impacts career paths that supervisors recommend for their staff. Internal communication is an issue. Resource decisions can impact other areas without advance notice.

      Advice to Management

      Work more as a team with strategic focus and get everyone going in the same direction. Optimize systems and resources.

      Benefits have improved alot. Great place to learn. Growing company. Flexible schedule. They hired someone to support the employees and I'm looking forward to the future.

      Could pay better to keep talent. Feedback is typically minimal.

      Advice to Management

      Be more competitive with pay and leadership should praise employees when they work hard and perform well. Communicate better with all
