    I have been working at PsychoGenics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meaningful and rewarding research on HD, Parkinson's, ALS and other CNS disorders. Flexible work schedules, good work-life balance, some weekend work. Good benefits--matching 401k, holiday bonus and performance bonus. Nice, respectable coworkers.

    Cons

    Salary is fair for company size, but could be improved. At times workload imbalance between groups can be demotivating as some staff are very busy and others have nothing to do.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management can be more visible and communicate more often with employees about the company's performance and long term goals.

    Pros

    There really are no pros here

    Cons

    This is a CRO so all the work is contracted by external companies. You will be providing "professional" labor. Don't expect to be doing science, you will just be doing what you are told to do. However, that's not really the problem. The main issue here is the work place atmosphere; you will be surrounded by unwelcoming, jealous, unprofessional and micromanaging people that do not care to form healthy working relationships. You will most likely not feel like a valued member of the team. Additionally there was a very high turnover rate; while I was working here numerous people were fired. Everybody is constantly afraid of getting fired. An overall depressing place to work.

    Advice to Management

    The managers have no idea what's going on. They have little interaction with new hires and in some cases it seems as if pre-existing employees are able to manipulate managers or play upon their favoritism.

    As a CRO we do work for clients; however, we also perform internal research for many CNS indications. Sorry you did not have a pleasant experience in your more than 3 years of work at... More
