Disapproves of CEO

Pros

*The work is neverending, therefore you spend a LOT of time with your coworkers. This being said, your coworkers are like family.
* I gained some lab experience to get a REAL job.

Cons

* Pay is pitiful for the amount of time/work you put into this place
* Little to no appreciation of employees
* No change where change is needed. There is no continuous improvement in place.
* SOS (Same Old Sh*t) every single day. Work is very mind numbing with little to no chance of advancement.
* Promotions based on tenure, not competence.
* The hardest I ever worked in my life was at this place. You can't leave when you've put in your 8 hours. You MUST stay until the work is done.
* The stressful high paced work environment and lack of a good home/life balance wears on people and creates drama and fights on coworkers.

Advice to Management

* Look into having a Continuous Improvement team
* Change is GOOD. Change the things that aren't working (there are a lot of them)
* Appreciate your employees more! Employee appreciation lunches a few times a year + Lab Week is not enough in this day and age.
* Have a rewards program to reward employees that go above and beyond.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    This company pays decently but sadly that is about the only pro that I can think of.

    Cons

    Stressful work environments. High turnover rate. Always short staffed. Extremely little employee support or appreciation. Benefit packages are a disappointment.

    Advice to Management

    Provide the tools and work environment necessary for workers to achieve the goals set for them and appreciate your workers.
