Employee Review

  1. 1.0
    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    Loads of favoritism

    Pros

    Great location, some principal scientists are super smart. Others rely on junior staff and are not very smart. Really depends on your office location. Collaboration is difficult.

    Cons

    Poor PTO Pay not competitive Work-life balance is impossible to try to keep up with 85% utilization rate Low career growth potential as it is based on favoritism. To manage projects, you have to be favored by the principal scientists. If you aren't, then you are stuck doing menial tasks. Some of the principal scientists have questionable ethics (and have been called out for it) The clientele is not always on the side that you want to work on, but it is consulting, so it may not be for everyone. Quite a high turnover rate Emphasis on utilization rates is impossible--staff are fabricating their hours to make up higher utilization rates. In fact, staff don't even account for time to go to the restroom or to eat.
