I have been working at Ricerca Biosciences LLC full-time

Pros

Some of the employees are paid better than industry standard

Cons

Pay inequity for new employees, skeletal staff due to recent RIFs

Advice to Management

open your eyes and invest in the business, re-evaluate wages so there aren't as many discrepancies within pay grades, listen to experienced staff and quit looking outside for advice, live in the future not in the past...stop maintaining the old ways or operating...it didn't work.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ricerca Biosciences LLC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Starting salaries were pretty good(stagnant after that, for years), decent benefits(getting worse year after year, though), GREAT peers/co-workers, decent variety in type of work done. Job flexibility was there, but is being eroded in the nonsense name of "billable hours".

    Cons

    Layoffs, just....constant layoffs. Never in the history of business, has one company managed to get such an impressive string of incompetent leadership throughout it's history (30 years!!!!), and still manage to limp along and stick around. So far, the new owners are continuing this trend, except now they are actually present to berate and belittle you on a regular basis for not working hard enough.

    The same practice of, build up work force for anticipated work, then cut work-force when work dries up (or doesn't even come in) is still in place. Expect zero job stability. Imagine going to work every day, wondering if this is "the" day.

    Very seriously, do not take a job here if you are coming from out of state, if you make it past 1 years of employment, you'll be one of the lucky ones. And there just isn't a whole lot of employment of this type in the area.

    Advice to Management

    If you buy a company that hasn't been profitable for decades, but has managed to keep the same long-timer, stuck-in-the-past, unable to change, middle management, who use the same garbage business practices, and give the same garbage advice to every clueless, know-nothing CEO/board/leader that came before you, maybe you should look there for cuts and head-count changes, instead of the people that actually do the work that makes you money?

    Nice and clean campus. Advanced instrumentation. Good starting point for recent graduates. Some employees are friendly. Easy access to Interstate.

    Cons

    Management are far from professional. Incompetent co-workers. Low moral throughout the company. Office politic rules over business from top down. No future for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Be serious about business.
