Designed as a factory for scientist
Microbiologist (Current Employee) – Dublin, OH – November 1, 2017
If you are hired in as a technician, you will be doing the exact same thing day in and day out (ie weighing or pipetting) with no advancement or training opportunities. The responsibilities are heaped onto under-qualified and unmotivated Microbiologists who are not held to the same standards as the technicians or each other. If you have been there long enough, you are not expected to conform to any of the behavioral or professional guidelines set forth for everyone else. Management has insisted to have meetings scheduled around themselves and then will not show up to said meetings. Furthermore, you can only schedule a meeting through your supervisor, who will schedule it with other peoples' supervisors, and only one person per area is allowed to attend anythign outside of the lab at a time. So the meetings that you have set up only to be skipped by the management that demanded them will have been very time consuming to schedule. The best part: you are not allowed to tell a colleague they are doing something wrong until you ask them if they are ready for feedback first. If they are not, you are not allowed to give them corrective suggestions. It's the worst management I've ever experienced.
Technicians are great people
