This was the best paid job I have had, but the worst working conditions I have ever experienced.
The physical demands were great. I regularly ran 30 plate assays twice a week in addition to developing other assays, carrying cell lines, generating viral stocks, conducting additional experiments, completing assigned lab duties of stocking the tissue culture rooms, tracking plasmids in the data base, and analyzing data for presentations.
Management was not helpful in identifying priorities in order to stream-line work load. According to management, everything is a priority.
Co-workers are also over loaded and repetitive stress injuries are common, and commonly go unreported for fear of reprimand from management.
