Laboratory Manager in Kendal, Cumbria
on 6 January 2017
Enjoyable but stressful position in a start-up company
Typically, 10+-hour day, with much deskwork but also with daily team-meetings (with 6-7 technicians); problem-solving (professional and personal); checking reports; chasing external work. Also significant pest-control.

Not a good place to work
The job itself is quite tedious and boring. Spend most of the time cleaning down, as production runs vary although are mainly on the small side. Any job here is insecure with terms of employment changing regularly to fit with the Directors increasingly wild demands. Mainly on the "save money" front.Over the last year, the turnover has been quite incredible, with redundancies, walkouts, instant resignations and everything in-between. My advice would be only to take a job here if you're really desperate and you aren't leaving a good secure job in the first place. Once in, you'll be left to your own devices to figure out how to operate machinery or do the actual job they want you to do as training doesn't really happen here...Due to the age of the building (and its location), animal pests are common within. Don't be surprised to see flying ants, rats and black bugs whilst on shift. Speaking of pests, every shift seems to contain a multitude of snitches so watch out.

stressful and unpleasant work environment
the mood from the top down is just doom and gloom, ceo is erratic and unpleasant to most staff if he bothers to speak to them at all. No structure or direction for the company know clear plan no gratitude to staff, payrise and bonuses non existant

Strange place to work
If you really need work and can find nothing else fine, it's money end of the day. The culture is strange, and demands placed Upon staff are unreasonable. Pay is basic, and 20% less than where it needs to be at least. They do like to "penny pinch'". Management is all over the place and what the owner says goes. However, the owner can't actually make his mind up half of the time when he is not being nasty that is. Location is wonderful, surround by green fields and hills.
