Initially great, now not so much
Research Assistant/Lab Manager (Current Employee) – Bar Harbor, ME – August 31, 2017
Mouse research was initially very mentally stimulating and exciting. For the first ten years I loved my job, worked lots of voluntary overtime and looked forward to working there well into retirement. However, in recent years we've gradually become over-regulated and 'dumbed-down'. Innovation and creativity are now largely discouraged and the work environment has become physically very uncomfortable, due to a number of newer legal requirements and managerial decisions. It's stable work for good wages, if that's all you're looking for, and depending on how you approach your job, you might even consider it fun to work there. But if you have higher aspirations, you'll likely become increasingly disillusioned over time.
beautiful environment, good wages for this area, competitive in the industry
over-regulated and over-managed
