Suggestions for improvement

  • Build another building or buy the church and build the laboratory on the church property.

What I like about the company

They offered a very attractive starting salary.

What I dislike about the company

They did not provide a personal computer or personal workspace. The laboratory is WAY too small to effectively perform job duties.
