Pros

The quality of work and personal life is good at Charles River Laboratories. Work hours are flexible and workload is not too bad (since there are ebbs and flows at every job). Everyone cares about the work that they do and the people are great to work with.

Cons

Although work life at Charles River Laboratories is good, this is really the only scientific company in Sparks/Reno outside of UNR or DRI (both academically oriented) to work at. Therefore, in order to find another job I had to move out of the area.

Advice to Management

Keep growing
