    I worked at Diversified Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    A lot of stuff to learn, to do. The job keeps you busy all the time. Very nice hard-working people to work with. Small team with a lot of opportunities.

    Cons

    Chemical lab always has some vaporized chemicals in the air. Really fast pace working environment. with long working hours. Short and late lunch break. You have to work more than 6 years or so to get good benefits.

    Advice to Management

    To encourage staff strictly follow safety protocols in many ways. To care about employees. To improve human resource management.

    Pros

    None, everything is sad in this place.

    Cons

    Run away, crazy management that has a very negative vibe to it. You will be depressed working here, run away. $11/hr for an entry level lab tech is ridiculous.

    Pros

    free food and friendly hardworking co-workers

    Cons

    long hours (no life outside of work), bad pay, and poor management. CEO is arrogant and treats people poorly. Your workload and level of responsibility does not reflect your salary.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth and increase communication skills with your own employees. Over time is not worth the time commitment so either raise pay or set permanent end time for work.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers & management. Very understanding & reasonable about time off requests & scheduling. Hours & pay were good.

    Cons

    Senior management not always good about keeping all departments on the same page regarding sales, specials, etc. Slight lack of communication between management & employees at times. Slow business during off peak times of year (not their fault, just the nature of the business).

    Advice to Management

    Make more of an effort to make sure that all employees are kept in the loop about information that they might need to know.
