High turnover and they don't even try to hide it
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Hamilton, NJ – October 24, 2017
Tech jobs start off making the bare minimum anybody with a four-year degree should be making, and there's two raises in the contract and nothing beyond. No annual performance raise, bonus, etc. There's only two or three technicians who have been here longer than two years. New technicians start nearly every week, and they're nearly all put directly on overnight shifts. Many, if not most, employees commute long-distance, and you're frequently reminded not to take too many breaks or take advantage of them. Nearly every employee is actively seeking employment elsewhere. The few positives are that the management is generally friendly and helpful. And this job will give you the entry-level experience you need to get your foot in the door in a career path in molecular biology. But there's no effort made to keep you there.
