    5. 1.0
      Current Employee

      Awful conditions, awful management.

      Jun 10, 2021 - Wet Chemistry Analyst in Wheat Ridge, CO
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very few exist. Good place to get experience spotting all the red flags, and seeing everything you don't want to.

      Cons

      Mandatory overtime, no working AC, lack of support from management, no concern over individual wellbeing. This place is all about the numbers and how much money they can make.

      Job is okay

      May 31, 2021 - Lab Technician in Fairfield, NJ
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The people are helpful when you are starting off.

      Cons

      Very mundane when it is slow, but when it is busy there's a lot going on at once so you are doing multiple tasks at the same time and running around everywhere, and everyone else is busy too so there isn't going to be much help from others as well.

      So much potential

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Nice people, fast paced work, benefits are ok, good starter job for chemistry grads. So much potential to be a great lab if management would invest in some money into the facility, equipment and IT.

      Cons

      Old equipment in some departments, hard to move around to learn new positions, employee turnover, LIMS and network could be better.
