Great purpose, fantastic people & enjoyable work
For me LGC so far has been a really rewarding journey, full of challenges in developing our output, but also as much support as you could want to meet those challenges. It is a sprawling business, with a huge amount to keep you engaged and constantly learning about the different facets of the company, as well as a talented and friendly team from around the world.

My work is always varied, never dull, and I feel genuinely appreciated, as do others on the team. The hardest part of the job is that there is so much to do and prioritisation is key, but the growth in the team and the depth of skill on it over the last few years has been fantastic and is a big help in meeting goals.


That there is still so much more we can achieve is also one of the best parts of the job - the potential for continued growth and improvement is exciting. Other top aspects of the job are the amazing global team and the depth of expertise in it, the real sense of purpose and mission to our work (Science for a safer world), the variety and the management, who are the best I've ever worked with.

Inexperienced line manager impossible to work with
Great colleagues, Company really understands its market position, Unfortunately I had a line manager with little experience in managing people, no concept of time management and spent his time micromanaging from over my shoulder
Pros
Good benefits package
Cons
Unable to voice concerns over line manager

Echo Chamber of Irrationality
A science company with people who ignore evidence and facts to support their personal agendas. Any suggestions for improvements are tabled and ignored.

You will not be given the tools, time or training necessary to do your job. Salary is 15-25% below state and city averages with no hazard pay. Raises are typically only 1-3%.


Most of the management (and all of the upper management on site) cannot use the ERP system and refuse to learn the basics.
Pros
Flexible-ish schedule
Cons
Low pay with even worse "benefits"

Productive
Each day I would learn something new. Some days I would work in the main office where I dealt with all the important files, finance of the business. Whereas other days I would be dealing with suppliers and making sure all the products and finance is all up to date in the business. Overall it was a positive experience and taught me a lot.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Long hours

Flessibilità e supporto
Apprezzavo molto la possibilità di gestire in odo indipendente il mio lavoro, dai viaggi per visitare ai clienti al lavoro d'ufficio, che potevo svolgere anche da casa. Il mio superiore era sempre disponibile per supportarmi.

A good place to be a part of a team and learn
I have worked in LGC group for 6 months under Leonardo Scholarship, i have learnt many of new techniques for me, to be part of a team , work effectively under pressure and i have acquired a great experiencie working within laboratory environment.

Communicate and work co-operatively with others, ability to work individually and as part of a team.


The most enjoyable part of the job for me is to have the opportunity to learn and hope to carry on doing to keep building my career.


I have ability to learn new techniques quickly and efficiently.
