Senior Research Associate (Former Employee), Rockville Maryland – February 21, 2012
I had worked in GeneTox performing pilot, toxicity, and micronucleus assays. Job security was never in question as there was always plenty of work to be done. It was great that I got along with almost every single person in the building, which is unheard of, but true. This positive atmosphere definitely made the work day a most enjoyable one.
Associate Scientist I (Current Employee), Rockville, MD – March 7, 2014
A typical day at work involves waiting for the moment your manager chooses to yell at you. I have learned that even when I report to human resources that my manager is abrasive and unprofessional and I would like an internal transfer, the transfer is not allowed. My co-workers and I try to lean on each other for the support and structure we need from – more... my manager, but he tends to pit us against each other. The hardest part of my job is that I'm trying to learn in an environment where the team competes amongst themselves. This type of environment does not cultivate growth. The most enjoyable part of my job is when things are running smoothly and no one is getting reprimanded for something they didn't know they did wrong because of lack of structured training. – less

I love the responsibility given to me in this job. An extremely fast paced job but loads to learn and wide skill set available for individuals to learn. Tight team who all worked well and supported one another.
