    I worked at Cell Applications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Skilled coworkers and interesting job duties.

    Cons

    The workplace had a tense atmosphere. Employees did only exchange the most basic pleasantries towards each other. The lab was worn down and a lot of lab equipment in need of replacement and floors were constantly dirty. I was also concerned about lab safety, e.g. there were gas cylinders in the cell lab that were not secured as required, an open flame is used to sterilize bottles etc. For some unknown reason, UV light...

    I have been working at Cell Applications full-time

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere. Management and suits work close with staff but do not micromanage.

    Cons

    Lower ceiling for growth within the company, however the management and ownership has open ears.

    Advice to Management

    Need a Monday a morning meetings for entire staff. Dept heads could give updates on workflow and commentary, would be beneficial for everyone.

    Pros

    You can learn multiple things. Coworkers are great.

    Cons

    It is very small company and you will work with company CEO all the time. Company CEO is very biased, disrespectful and disorganized person. She changes her comment all the time and tries to micro-manage you. I do not recommend this company.
