    Freedom to come and go as you please (very flexible hours), job security, great people and access to state of the art equipment and technology

    Outstanding place to be a scientist! Loads of opportunities to learn cutting edge science and make a huge difference in patient's lives. Great people and a great team environment.

    I worked at WuXi AppTec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people excluding management

    Cons

    Management, salary, benefits, HR, high high employee turnover

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your current management, train the current junior staff for supervisor and management positions. Stop hiring outside management who were let go from other companies because they couldn’t manage. Just because the title says manager or supervisor doesn’t mean they have the skills and personality to manage and supervise. Do a thorough background check

    I have been working at WuXi AppTec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people with decent experience, wonderful products

    Cons

    Tons of oversight from management, lack of concrete training program leaves too much room for improper technique, absolutely no room for promotion without changing departments, overworked & exhausted individuals being spread too thin

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your current employees and treat them like human beings. Respect their experience & learn to accept suggestions.

    I worked at WuXi AppTec for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people. You kind of get thrown in the fire with a lot of projects which allows for good learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Management is poor and they hold a lot of talented people back. Long, inconsistent hours. Pay is not competitive for this field

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries to be more competitive. Give more consistent training and allow people who want to move up within the company to do so.
