    I worked at EMSL Analytical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I did get 2 promotions and fought for reasonable wages. Most are hourly employees so overtime is accrued. Vacation time was reasonable but in the smaller labs taking time off meant huge trouble for production.

    Cons

    Nepotism is the company moto. It took 2 years for the sample receiving area to get a hood for accepting asbestos samples. I watched lab techs work in unsafe conditions completely untrained with no qc being performed. Quality is not favored, it is all about quantity. Asbestos analysts were expected to analyze well over 125 samples per day.

    Benefits are deplorable.

    The HR manager just so happens to be married and related to all most of management so the is no safe haven for airing grievances.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spreading yourselves so thin, stop growing and focus on getting it right. Invest in better equipment and most importantly training. I hate to be a pessimist but this will never happen.
