      Unrealistic

      Pros

      The high employee turnover rate means that they have a fairly well developed training procedure, especially for those with little or no experience Very multicultural Good benefits for full time staff Internal platform to give recognition to colleagues

      Cons

      Extremely low wages and very little opportunity for growth The priority is processing as many samples as possible as fast as possible, so excessive overtime is often necessary (this may be how they can get away with such low base salaries) Refusal to solve basic problems like faulty hvac systems that prevent samples from being processed properly Regularly denied approval for basic necessary software or equipment Staff are overworked and underpayed, there's a general sense of bitterness about this
