    Pros

    Fabulous colleagues, great customer experiences, interesting projects

    Cons

    The people running the company have no interest in growing the company organically. They think that the life sciences division will bring them to the promised land. The profit ceiling there is certainly high, but they are killing their cash cows in other industries. They either don't realize it, or probably more likely, do'nt care.

    Advice to Management

    Leave. Especially the Senior Executives and local management in NY.

    Pros

    I worked for ABC Labs as it got acquired by EAG so I speak for the Parma division of EAG. Incredible people, state of the art facility, best in class equipment and scientist. Perhaps the best E&L group in the industry. Forward thinking, not afraid to invest and effective operations.

    Cons

    Located in Columbia MO.
    Perhaps dealing with capacity issues like every other lab out there.
    Identity change following acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing forward. Invest in your people and sky will be the limit!

    I have been working at EAG Laboratories full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    EAG is an amazing company with so much growth potential. They are evolving from multiple small companies mashed together into a cohesive single EAG entity and all the transformations that come with it are super exciting.

    I see the amazing technical expertise in the works in the labs with all our scientists who have built expertise over the years, as well as all the corporate functions really coming together, with growth options but with a human size company. What you do here really has an impact on the business and the culture. Whether in HR, IT, Marketing, Sales or the Laboratories, etc... I definitely would recommend this company to anyone.

    Cons

    I think many employees are caught in the "Change is hard" period right now, as we go through so much change. Hopefully the vision of our executive team will prove itself successful ( which I truly believe it will) and will alleviate these feelings.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you keep communicating on the vision the the reasons why the changes happen, to keep everyone aware of the big picture.

    I worked at EAG Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    The team I belong is very talented and competent. My manager is excellent, he got the budget I needed and I was able to do my work because of him.

    Cons

    Not much cons, younger people might not like it because the environment is rather tradition but it's not a bad thing. You can learn a thing or two from people who actually stayed at a company over a decade =).
