Suggestions for improvement

  • I think we lack communication. There is a lot of communication via email. I think it should be through the phone or direct contact because through email things easily get communicated wrong.

What I like about the company

I first started in the Iowa location. I am from California so I was a bit far from home. Everyone who works for Trans Ova Genetics made me feel right at home and as if we were a big family. Not once did I get homesick

What I dislike about the company

I can’t think of one thing that I disapprove of.

A Review

2.11

Company Culture

Innovation and change are not tolerated unless devised by your superiors

Support from management

Decision are largely done by highers-up in management long removed from the lab or production environment.

Internal Communication

Communication is severely lacking from any real intended person or useful beneficiary. One must take creative initiative to know what must be known.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Change won't hurt you as much as you think. Empirical evidence is worth more than one manager's opinion.

What I like about the company

Most of the coworkers are enjoyable and the work is scientifically fascinating.

What I dislike about the company

Hypocrisy in management: personal connections such as family relations were used in management approach for promotion and advancement.
