    Pros

    Amazing people to work with and allowed the freedom to make any improvements I wanted even though I was at a very junior level.

    Cons

    Parking was too limited at the new site, however a secure car park was available about a 10 minuet walk away at no charge to staff.

    Advice to Management

    try and establish better car parking facilities on the new site, as the parking at the old site was amazing.

    Pros

    Great people and facilities. Exciting product pipeline from many angles. Takes time out to celebrate and reward staff. Opportunity to work on genuinely important and interesting topics of your into bioscience and biomanufacturing.

    Cons

    Quite a lot of bureaucracy. No real onboarding structure other than basic health and safety. Management not transparent. Slow pace of work. I didn't personally connect with the culture there but others seemed to enjoy the atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to recruit and retain talent invest in people early, give them exciting work and provide some useful structure. Otherwise you're self selecting hires who will put up with average performance and slow progress.
