    I have been working at KBI Biopharma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Driven and competent employees -Innovative science -Good pay, average benefits -Tons of opportunities and growth (my group has doubled in the last 3 years and will double again within the next 2) -Influx of employees from more established companies is driving culture in the right direction -Upper management is putting more of a focus on positive culture

    Cons

    -High pace of work -Some long-term/upper-level employees still have a "startup" mentality in regards to work/life balance -Benefits are getting better but could still use improvement -Not a ton of opportunities for conferences/external training

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in people and culture to attract and retain high-level employees. Learn to say "no" to clients more often.

    I have been working at KBI Biopharma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - above average pay - good place to start right out of school - fast paced, always on your feet, you will learn a lot - if you are in a good group, it can be a great experience and very rewarding

    Cons

    - if you aren't in a good group, or if your manager sucks, it can be awful - facility is poorly maintained and they do not invest in it - no paternity leave and otherwise average benefits - a lot of the day-to-day lifestyle things like your workspace and parking are poor

    Advice to Management

    - reinvest some profits into improving the durham facility otherwise relocate - more space is a necessity and this has been largely ignored - reward managers whose employees are thriving and remediate managers whose employees are miserable
