    Pros

    Not hard work and good experience for future jobs.

    Cons

    I used to be proud of the company, but with new management the lab has taken a turn away from the great qualities the company used to represent. There was always a strong emphasis on the positives of further education but the new manager doesn't care about that and now people are afraid of pursuing higher degrees out of fear of school interfering with work and losing their job. It also doesn't matter how minor the...

    Your feedback is very important. Pursuing further education is also very important – and one of the reasons we offer a tuition reimbursement program at FSNS to employees who pursue degree programs tied to our business. In fact, I’ll bet your LM will share that he plans to pursue ...

    Pros

    The people you work with can make lifelong friends. We have work-related activities/get-togethers. Good experience for anyone wanting to be in the science field. There is always the option to move up within the company. We recently started cross-training all new hires. The pay isn’t terrible, but it isn’t great either. Overtime is offered, but not required. However, if OT is wanted, there are plenty of opportunities...

    Cons

    Health insurance is incredibly expensive. Everyone gets the same pay for the same positions, regardless of whether or not you have a degree. The company wants people with a degree for certain positions, but they don’t want to pay for people with a degree. Paying for student loans with this company is quite difficult because there isn’t much of a pay benefit when compared to other places. You are guaranteed to work...

    Advice to Management

    I think all employees here could use better leadership skills, especially since we're hiring so many new people. I think sometimes management jumps to conclusions instead of getting the whole story so people get blamed for things that didn't go the way they think they did. But the door swings both ways on this one, employees do the same with management. Nobody is innocent here. Push for a higher pay scale. Consider...

    Pros

    Coworkers are the only thing

    Cons

    overworked, underpaid, workers who’ve been here longer don’t get to choose their preferred shift before a hiring search so night shifts are required indefinitely, no consistent schedule, high turnover, no appreciation, strenuous, benefits are twice the cost of most company’s

    Pros

    Goodie Give a way. The 4 day schedule which works for people who actually have a life outside of the lab.

    Cons

    Where to begin; Lets just say I have one foot out the door. Theres no reason why this place pays as low as they do with the amount of work that has to be done. The pay is tremendously poor. Been here too long and have yet to get a raise or recognized for my hard work. So its fine. Im plotting to leave. Nothing is ever steady here. Things could be a lot more consistent. Favoritism at its finest here. Employees are rude...

    I was hired because I applied to this horrible place through an internet site. I was interviewed and they sounded depserate so i took the offer and i only worked for a day. I was told by managers of the place that i would be doing strictly clerical duties. During the middle of my day, I was approached by management and told to go "watch someone do sampling" or whatever it was called. I immediately asked about my clerical...
