    I worked at EMAX Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    A great place to gain experiences right after graduated from college. They are willing to hire people with limited or no experiences.

    Cons

    Pay is not decent, and completely lack of opportunity for growth. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more on instruments and software. Show more appreciation toward employees.

    Pros

    The people and supervisor's are very nice. They are easy to talk to and get along with. The work is not very difficult.

    Cons

    On busy weeks, work load builds up and you are required to stay overtime 1-2 hours everyday. Most of the work is mundane and you do not feel you have a big impact.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere. Good sense of work and life balance. Nothing too bad about this company. A good start if you want to continue your career in science.

    Cons

    Need to update system. They were using DOS when I was there. A little bit of remodeling won't hurt either.

    Advice to Management

    The management was good. Nice people and always willing to listen to ideas. My direct supervisor could have been a bit more personalble though.
