Trying to Stay Afloat
Staff Professional (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOMay 19, 2015
Pros: Professional environment and flexible work schedules.
Cons: Job and company stability. The basic resources to do your job.
MRIGlobal was once a respected home to innovation and diversity, but reliance on government contracts has turned them into a ship that is leaking water and employees rapidly.

In my time there nearly 1/3 of the company has left due to frequent layoffs or resignation. Dwindling budgets have left many of the laboratories and administrative systems outdated, making it hard to compete against others in the field. This also affects salaries, which lag far behind the industry standards.

To MRIGlobal's credit they have recognized many of these problems and have launched several business diversity and employee development programs, but due to budget constraints they are usually facilitated by the internal training team who lack both experience and industry knowledge.

My hope is that MRIGlobal can once again gain the innovative spark that made them industry leaders, but in the meantime prospective employees need to be aware that regardless of performance, a long career at MRIGlobal may not be possible.

Antiquated business logic and 70's style management
N/A (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOApril 24, 2015
Pros: You help to save lives
Cons: You have to deal with slow, close minded people that contradict themselves constantly.
This company values the way you interact with your peers more than how well you do your job. There is no regard for hard work, integrity, professionalism, or the level of money saving ideas you bring to the table. If you do not "get along" (Which is not important when in the world of business, it is about BUSINESS) they will get rid of you or make it hard for you to work there.

Great for recent Grads but not a good place for advancement
Associate Scientist (Current Employee), Rockville, MDJune 15, 2012
Pros: staff activities (book club, walking club, holiday party, etc)
Cons: you may not eat lunch, negative atmosphere, complaining, poor communication
This review is only for the laboratory side of company. This is a good job for recent graduates, but there is little room for growth. The only way that you can move to another project is if someone quits and once you are on the project, you sit around with no work to do. Communication is poor, they wait until the last minute to inform you of changes. Work environment is becoming negative due to poor leadership.
