    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at GenVec part-time

    Pros

    Small business environment, and co-workers can be friendly.
    People with a varied background work there.

    Cons

    Learning and improving is not promoted.
    Senior scientists tend to pigeon-hole you.
    Intentional overworking occurs often.
    Overtime is NEVER paid out. No matter how much you work.
