    I worked at Frontage Laboratories full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good learning place for new graduates. A lot of hard working people here. They prompt pretty fast. So if you can stay, you might be able to get promotion quickly.

    High work load and less pay. You will be asked to start working on projects with minimum training. Many times you will have over 3 projects at same time.

    Need to invest on facilities and employees to keep businesses moving.

    Pros

    The co-workers are very nice and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.

    Take care of your employees, don't just hire, train and then force people to leave. Be generous and fair on people's bonus.

    I have been working at Frontage Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    Not many pros to speak to. Decent health care package but all other benefits are awful or non existent. Huge high turnover.

    Cons

    UNQUALIFIED people in top manager positions that have no idea how to run organization, manage people or provide leadership. CEO Will not invest in any technology or tools for job. Very very Cheap. All top management incompetent and unprofessional so no hope that anything change. IT system antiquated and so much incompetentancy beyond your comprehendsion. The office in Exton is dirty dark and dingy. They don't change light bulbs because too cheap. They don't give office supplies either. Lucky when have soap to wash hands.

    Advice to Management

    Give people respect and tools to allow to do job. Get phone system that works. Invest in people, technology and facilities, just asking for the basics of a professional office environment.
