What I like about the company

I started out as an admin asst and within a year I had received a promotion and was getting a pay increase of 15% every year for the first 5 or so years of my employment.

What I dislike about the company

There is a lack of opportunity once you get to a certain point unless you're one of the favored employees. There is also no pay for performance and the majority of people are rated at a level 2 (out of 3). so working hard doesn't really pay off.

Support from management

No upper management leadership at all. No support for managers of the individual labs

Teamwork

No teamwork with other labs or upper managers

Internal Communication

Upper management does not clearly state the direction or purpose of the lab. Seems to close labs at will

Attitude towards older colleagues

Laying people off with out respect to retirement age or years of service. No respect for longevity.

Career Development

None

Overall compensation for your work

Was good now very poor. No raises in over ten years

Office / Work Environment

Toxic. People are fed up. Expected to work more without explanation as to why

Work-Life Balance

Poor

Company Image

Would not recommend any body to work here now

Job Security

None. Lab section may close the next day with out warning.

Workplace Safety

People pushed to hard and to fast. An accident is bound to happen

Challenging Work

Work load is unrealistic and direction not present

Suggestions for improvement

  • Talk to employees at the lab and tell them what you are doing and why get by in and support before making sweeping changes. Explain why lab is financially in trouble and layoffs are necessary.

What I like about the company

Used to be a great place to work. I have worked for over twenty years and have had the opportunity to increase my knowledge and skills. Not getting promotions or more money was balanced by a sense of purpose lead by senior management that we were helping the people of Colorado.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of leadership. Decision seem to be random and without purpose or direction. As they close more of the lab the people of Colorado become less safe.
