    I have been working at CARO Analytical Services full-time

    Pros

    Working with a great group of people make it easy to get up and go to work in the morning. Flexible work day.

    Cons

    It takes a long time, and a lot of extra effort to make a decent salary. Starting salaries (which seem similar to other labs however), are tiny and many people end of quitting after a year or two of experience.
