    I have been working at POLARIS Laboratories full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility with schedule. My manager is the best manager I have ever had. He works just as hard as everyone on the team. When I first started everyone went out of there way to make me feel welcome and answer my questions. All of my coworker are awesome people who are a joy to work with.

    Cons

    It is a big learning curve when you don’t know anything about oil analysis. There are office politics like at most companies. They could do a better job of trying to avoid that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on open communication and sticking to lean. Also put more of an emphasis on cross training so that when there is turnover we are not in a whole.
