    The corporate culture values employees. Life work balance, plenty of opportunities to grow and develop in areas you like, although this doesn't always mean you will climb the promotion ladder.

    Upper level management is isolated with respect to the rest of the company, they seem to have a disconnect with what really grows Promega, consistent, high quality, products.

    Stay engaged

    I worked at Promega full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    All of the people I worked with at Promega were interested in strong relationships and getting a good product out to customers. Technical Support is considered VERY important and this leads to happier customers. Most groups within the organization see career path as a key component to keeping their folks happy.

    Cons

    Promega isn't always the highest paying company in biotech. There is variability in the strength of work-life balance between different areas of the company.
