    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at KBI Biopharma

    Pros

    Some of the people I interact with are great and are trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    -There is a lot of turnover here, likely due to the lack of opportunity, promotions and benefits -Work hours are long with no outlook for improvement due to not having enough personnel versus the current workload -Responsiblity and accountability don't exist and the roles and responsibilities of work groups are blurred

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at KBI Biopharma

    Pros

    A lot of independence and space to do your work with anyone over you (no micro-managing)/ Lack of promotions and opportunities to move up in the company

    Cons

    Its a lot of passive aggressiveness and drama (gossip) in the Accounting Department. The management is not on top of things when it comes to the morale and conduct their employees. Horrible work environment

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at KBI Biopharma full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to advance. Management does look out for their "favorites". Company is rapidly growing so there is little chance for layoffs.

    Cons

    Very poor work/life balance. Many of us are salaried and expected to work 60+ hours/week.

    I have been working at KBI Biopharma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Business is good. HR says there will be opportunities with an expanding company. KBI was recently purchased so job stability is up as well.

    Cons

    Very poor communication between groups. Managers are focused on work not employee development. Once you are in everything takes time and your performance means little.

    I have been working at KBI Biopharma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on a variety of techniques and lots of training provided. Opportunity for growth and learning about the industry. Opportunities to write protocols or reports. The company seems stable and growing.

    Cons

    The Durham site is in a bad neighborhood. No easy commute and no safe place to live nearby. The building is uncomfortable. The labs are disorganized – expect to spend much of your day searching for supplies and a place to work. While there are women in group leader roles, there are few women in some groups, and the culture is male dominated. The supervisors are on one floor, and the analysts are on another so communication with your supervisor is usually by phone or email.
