    I worked at Charles River Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    Good relations with my direct line manager

    Cons

    No one seemed to know what the company goals were. Meetings were fraught with bad-mouthing corporate and shooting sarcasm at upper management. People actually spent time on company hours looking for other job options and were not shy about it. Whenever someone got a new job, people lined up their cubby to ask for inside recommendations on the new job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bashing corporate for your mediocrity. The people that work for you will respect you more if you owned your mistakes more pften
