    I worked at LifeLabs full-time

    Pros

    The only benefit this job has is the flexibility of working from home, and a good salary.

    Cons

    The BD department has so many gaps that this seemingly larger company actually acts like a start-up. Chaos breeding chaos is the best way to describe it. Directors in positions they shouldn't be in (nepotism at it's finest - or cost cutting, OR a mix of both, it's all you will see there) - restructure after restructure, and yet they're bleeding money, and can't get a handle on any of it. Improper management... decisions, improper investments, starting from the very top, trickling down to the bottom - leaving people to put out fires constantly. There are people in BD that are extremely smart, and know how business operates. Unfortunately, the people making the decisions are in the wrong positions and lack the same intelligence/experience and business sense as the people who know what they're doing. The ones that know what they're doing are often overlooked for promotions, and advancements (same reason mentioned before). Everyone out for themselves is the name of the game here, and the people that you think should be in your corner, never actually are. The concept of teamwork is foregone in business development (for the most part, not in every dept. within BD) - Genetics is probably the worst offender. If you're thinking about it, I'd say, there's much better opportunities out there, take advantage of those!
