Company Culture

Workplace bullying from supervisors is commonplace

Support from management

No clear or realistic targets, contradictory advice, lack of mentorship.

Teamwork

Colleagues at some levels work well together. Large difficulties between postdoctoral/student researchers and laboratory heads.

Freedom to work independently

Ambiguous responsibilities

Internal Communication

Unwritten and non-communicated limits on employment duration not stated in contracts.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Focus on hiring younger employees

Career Development

Career development is achieved through leaving the company

Overall compensation for your work

Paid on time. Have to work there for 5-6 years to have full vesting in retirement fund, yet most postdoctoral fellows are limited to 3 years.

Office / Work Environment

Workplace safety is not prioritized. Priority on the look of the place rather than comfort.

Work-Life Balance

Long working hours expected

Job Security

Short work contracts, was often told job would be eliminated.

Workplace Safety

At the time I worked there, no safety training was offered.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Staff training on awareness/prevention of workplace bullying, establish whistleblower protection and a safety training program, clearly define career development path including employment duration limits written within work contracts and information prior to hiring.

What I like about the company

In most cases, they have well equipped laboratories for medical research

What I dislike about the company

Lack of safety training, no policy against workplace bullying/abuse, lack of mentorship/leadership skills among senior academic staff, unwritten HR policies against long term employment/career development.
