Good place to work
Principal Instrument Specialist, Metrology (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MODecember 15, 2017
Good place to work but has been bought and sold a few times in the last year. May not be a stable career at this point due to constant ownership changes in past two years.
Pros
Good work environment
Cons
lacks stability

It was a good learning facility. good place to star a career. It might have established and become a big company now. That is all I have to tell. I never went back so I do not know any more.

Document Control Coordinator / Archivist (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MOJanuary 9, 2017
No typical day at work at ABC Labs. As a service group we had to change gears in the middle of doing one job to take on a new job as we had both internal and external clients.

Perfect starting point for graduate
Staff Scientist (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MOFebruary 6, 2015
Good place to learn the ins and outs of woriking in an GMP and GLP environment. The work is interesting and co-workers for the most part are fun to work with. Scheduling is an issue which results in a roller-coaster type work fluctuation, slammed for weeks and nothing for weeks. Going the extra mile, such as staying late, working weekends and holidays to meet deadlines goes unrecognized by management. Overall this is a good place to work, just don't make it the last stop.

Horrible place to work
Scientist (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MOFebruary 20, 2013
If you want to give up all your free time, have incompetent managers and be under paid then this is the perfect place to work.

You WILL work overtime and not be paid or compensated.

The scientist staff turnover is extremely high. This company is not financial stable with regards to its work force.

They will hire a wide range of backgrounds and provide inadequate training to perform critical tasks.

The entire company has a horrible communication culture. Information is often given out last minute and work is assigned with little preparation or concern for the safety and potential hazards lab staff might encounter.

Benefits are limited and the health insurance has high deductibles.
Cons
poor communication, low salaries, high stress environment, work nights and weekends often with out compensation.

Very productive QA group, all overachievers
Quality Assurance Associate (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MOAugust 27, 2012
Reviewing and auditing laboratory results for compliance and completeness. identifying, recommending improvements in SOP's. Learned more about auditing, working with groups, other people, lab analysis and data. The management was went above and beyond to make you feel a part of the company. All my co-workers were always willing to lend a hand and help in any way possible. The hardest part of the job was sitting all day. The most enjoyable part was having a job and being around other people who had jobs and cared about their work and compnay.
Pros
smaller company
Cons
sitting all day
