Not the best environment

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Very poorly organized company. Hierarchy is confusing at best. Management is hard to track down and sometimes just doesn't show up at all so you're left to figure things out on your own most of the time.The staff used to have productive weekly meetings to go over ongoing and incoming business. When it was necessary to discuss changes to procedures that matched with industry standards, some people were silenced and uninvited from the meetings for disagreeing with management. Employees are asked to work overtime without pay and to take the extra time as "comp time" but then reprimanded or judged for taking "too much" time off because there is no system in place to track hours worked and hours taken as comp time unless the employee takes it upon themselves to track their own time.My experience with HR at this company was unpleasant. Nothing is held in confidence. Observations of favoritism among certain employees are common. Letting some behaviors slide with some and punishing others that aren't on the favorites list is one example.Workplace drama is a regular occurrence and affects performance due to the organizational issues. Employees weren't allowed to request certified supplies when they expressed concern with performance or validity. Growth opportunities aren't something the company has. There are only a handful of official positions and most of the time you're doing the work of multiple people with a generic job title. I feel that my time, effort, and work at this company were not appreciated. Overall, I feel that the quality of work did not meet extractions. - 

Pros

Flexible schedule, learning opportunity

Cons

Favoritism, poor management, disorganized, not concerned about quality work, more concerned with bottom line and profit, poor communication, no growth opportunity, poor benefits, drama

Not what it seems

The only good thing about this food and agricultural testing lab is that they don't drug test their own employees so you can go to work smashed and not get in trouble. It's the only way you will survive the place.

Great learning environment but loose management

Avazyme was a place to get exposed to new techniques and skills but also a place to learn the sacrifices CEO's and managment will make for the gain for the company rather than decency towards employees

Pros

Flexible hours, great exposure, hands on work, and exciting challenges

Cons

loose management, loss of focus towards goals at hand, and never felt heard when attempting to troubleshoot
