Great place to Work horrible environment.
Animal Caretaker (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – January 27, 2018
Always got great performance reviews but was Laid off in one of their "sweeps". Put me in a new position without asking. Then they pulled the budget from my department so they couldn't pay me. cheapshot. You get to learn so much about the research side. loved working with the different types of animals. Life science techs (research side) are poorly trained. I've seen animal techs mistreat animals (not all, just one of the lead techs) they treat people like trash. Unless you're in one of the safe groups (PI's who bring in the funding). Or have your nose in someone's crack (you turn your head the other way or side with them when an issue arrives)don't expect to make a stable career here. BIG TIME MICROMANAGING. HR is horrible. They are not for the employees but for the company. If you complain about an actual issue, animal cruelty, being picked on, you're the problem. And then they figure a way to eliminate the problem (you), because you can't mess with their money, even if the some of the practices are unethical. I guess it just depends on ones moral values vs greed. But in all honesty you'll be underpaid and under appreciated. Watch Netflix Dirty Money Episode 1.
You learn a lot, you have a job, decent benefits
Unstable work environment. Trest employees like temps.
