    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I've had to think long and hard about this one and I can't think of a single Pro if you're the kind of person who is looking for career advancement.
    However, if you're the kind of person who doesn't "live to work" and more the sort of person who "works to live" then you should consider working for CRT. The hours are good, the pay not bad and nothing much is asked of the staff as the management are always too busy avoiding decisions or running from meeting to pointless meeting (not) deciding on the future of the company.

    Cons

    I you "live to work" then this is not the company for you, unlesss you want to use this place as a quick step into CRUK or buisness management.
    There is nothing to get excitied about in this company now.
    No career opportunities within the company and very few benefits

    Advice to Management

    Senior management of the lab is percieved as weak, directionless and unable to make decisions
    Group leader level managment are seen as sneaky, gossipy and promote their own agenda.... in fact we wonder what one or two of you actually do on a daily basis.
    Information still does not flow from the top down (despite the training courses).
