    I worked at Cell Signaling Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Healthcare is the only thing going for it

    Cons

    Management only promotes favorites and those who party with them after hours. Career is based on popularity and not knowledge or work ethic. HR is a joke, they blame everyone but the managers and turn things against the employee. You are penalized for reporting incidents. I wouldn’t want my worst enemy to work here.

    I worked at Cell Signaling Technology full-time

    Pros

    Health insurance, vacations, and work from home policy

    Cons

    The worst possible upper management; lacks vision and strategy; a lot of favoritism, bias, and nepotism making it hard for people to move up and get promotions; HR is seriously useless and a joke; a total time waste for anyone ambitious and wanting to grow

    Advice to Management

    Replace useless upper management with people who are smart and know what they are doing; have a vision and a solid strategy moving forward; learn how to retain smart people; promote only if deserving not because you "like" or "favor" someone.

    I worked at Cell Signaling Technology full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits Community Service Opportunities There are still some great employees there

    Cons

    Very sad to see what the company has become over the past few years. What was once such a great place to work has become a place full of finger pointing, backstabbing and bullying, mostly directed by management. The HR Department is a bigger joke than the company itself. Don't waste your time going to HR with any issues, most of the time they are part of the problem. I keep hoping something will change in time before...

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the CEO, take a look around and see what is happening to your company and fix things before you end up in court due to the way people are being treated there. You need to clean house in your HR Department, they're doing more damage for you and not handling the bad situations that are happening in the company.

    Pros

    Outstanding Benefits Package More or less competitive pay Convenient location Somewhat Interesting work.

    Cons

    It was painful and heartbreaking to see what CST turned into during the last 7 years me being there. Once a fantastic and amazing place to work quickly turned into a nightmare all because of wrong and unqualified people were brought into "power". An entire management layer has been stuffed from director's "favorite puppets" and most of the time it's individuals without necessary people's skills, past experience or adequate...

    Advice to Management

    Buff up your legal department. If the bullying will continue, you will get sued. Make no mistake it will happen.

    Great leadership. Some leadership changes are in flux right now but the key leaders have a great vision and are truly great people.

    Cons

    Small company, so it's hard to progress quickly. However, this is currently being addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest heavily in R&D, sell products for what they're worth, lay out clear development tracks for employees in all division, and continue improving this GREAT company.

    Pros

    Product integrity and quality, commitment to science and the environment.

    Cons

    Limited room for career growth, little consideration or appreciation of non-scientific employees. Significant underinvestment in IT and marketing. Blame culture because CEO doesn't trust people outside his inner circle so does not get a real view of what is going on in the business.

    Advice to Management

    1) Align senior management to avoid inter-departmental conflicts. 2) Listen to employees and stop forcing unrealistic objectives down - you are setting us up for failure.
