    I have been working at Ama Laboratories full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, opportunities, and room for advancement

    Cons

    Some Ex employees really have nothing better to do than to trash their former employer that took care of them for so many years.

    Pros

    Staff parking, lunch, computers, internet connection

    Cons

    CEO, trust, ethics, overall leadership, benefits

    Advice to Management

    Right now people are being laid off due to the criminal investigation of the company's CEO and the future of my job and of the other current employees is day by day.

    Pros

    Great benefits & pay. Work/life balance is also a perk.

    Cons

    Family owned business so lots of drama. Shady things went on , not surprised they are under investigation

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason why experts say you shouldn’t work with family and this company is a prime example of why it’s not a good idea.

    Pros

    Use to have good benefits and paid for schooling. Use to have a good reputation but sadly that was build upon lies.

    Cons

    Raided and investigated by FBI & FDA twice within a few months.

    Advice to Management

    Extremely poor upper management. Very unprofessional.

    I worked at Ama Laboratories full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We were all paid well for covering up for their corruption.

    Cons

    This is the most hostile work environment conceivable. Employees are all instructed to pretend to conduct FDA regulated product testing studies and forge documents. CEO and upper management threatened to fire employees for not abiding by their corrupt business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Come clean and stop blaming everything on former employees who where smart enough to leave. Owner knew exactly what was going on.

    Pros

    Great benefits package
    Generous salary increases

    Cons

    CEO is a lunatic
    Upper Management is a joke. Any time we went to them for help they just told us to "get it done." The whole place is a joke. CEO won't admit he's committed a crime and they've been raided by the FBI twice on two months. They deceive clients and want their technicians to lie as well. A sad end to what could have been a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO, one with a real education who is fit to run a corporation.

    I worked at Ama Laboratories (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Had great salaries and benefits. Not anymore.

    Cons

    Since the FDA and FBI are investigating the CEO & Company, salaries and benefits have been cut dramatically as well as down sizing staff. The whole company is struggling. CEO is selfish and crazy, management is a joke. They created a VERY hostile work environment since the raid in April.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making people suffer because of your decisions.

    Pros

    Hard work and some long days but the compensation and benefits are worth it. It might not seem like it some days but if you have a great work ethic it is recognized. You will learn a lot about a unique industry.

    Cons

    Some strong/ high school personalities that need to be monitored.
