    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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
