    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
