One of the more challenging aspects of that first job, or starting a new job in a new company, is in learning the corporate culture. The abbreviations and acronyms to which we all are addicted do not make this process any easier. I often wondered why there wasn’t a standard listing of abbreviations issued to all new hires upon joining a company.
The Microbiology Network has prepared a list of commonly used abbreviations in pharma, biotech, personal care products and management jargon that might be of assistance. The listing of abbreviations can be found at http://microbiologynetwork.com/acronyms.asp
Please let us know if there are other abbreviations that would be helpful – we will add them to the list at the earliest opportunity. Feel free to copy and distribute this list, citing the source.
