Lab Technician (Current Employee) – UK – November 2, 2013
I get on well with my colleagues, but...
Senior staff at my workplace are constantly moaning, and the negativity rubs off on me and the other junior staff. It makes coming to work mentally draining!
The computer system is absolutely atrocious (even for a youngster like me who is usually quite good with computers) - full of glitches and annoying quirks.
Our building is in desperate need of renovation, including more heating.
On a more positive note, my bosses are appreciative of me. But this is not enough to make me want to work there any longer. I've been there for 2 years, which already feels far too long, and have been jobhunting for 1 year. My advice if you do end up working here would be to start looking for a new job immediately!
Pleasant colleagues who value me
Low morale, relatively low pay, not enough work to do a lot of the time
