    It had its up and downs, great company but management needed help.

    Pros

    Great people to work with in the lab as well as in corporate.

    Cons

    The managers had no idea how to manage the people or how to help make sure you understood your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs more training on how to manage people and less on how to micromanage the department.
