    I worked at Charles River Laboratories full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work Schedule - Very relaxed when it comes to time off, school schedule, and various emergencies as they arise

    Full Benefits w/ decent pay and overtime if you like to work a little extra every week

    Cons

    Nothing to bad to say except that it is a testing facility, if your sensitive to animal rights and pharmaceutical testing then this obviously is not the place for you.

    I have been working at Charles River Laboratories full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay. 8 holidays two floating. Out early Fridays.

    Cons

    Low start pay. Slow to give raises. No incentives for education. Wont work around a school schedule. Have to earn time off or repay if you leave before the end of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage education inside the company! Flexible schedules and less stress on improving time at each task. Quality does not mean speed. Too much management on too many unnecessary levels. Micro managing is so unnecessary. Everyone can do thier own job and if they cant they shouldnt be employees any longer.
