No concern for employees' safety.

Accessioner (Current Employee)
Olathe, KS

I have been working at Abaxis as a contractor for less than a year

ProsWork is picking up quickly, so I expect they will be hiring more soon. No one has been fired while I have worked there.

ConsMultiple safety concerns have not been addressed despite promises by management to do so. We work with formaldehyde without a fume hood or nearby eyewash. Pays below industry standard.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees' concerns and act on your promises.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Poor Management!

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
Union City, CA

I have been working at Abaxis full-time for more than a year

ProsTechnically Savvy and well educated colleagues.

ConsNo Culture, many managers are either inexperienced, uneducated or not up to the task.

Advice to Senior ManagementUse anonymous internal surveys to assess morale and then act on the results. Include employees at all levels when making certain decisions as opposed to keeping them in the dark. Take attrition rates seriously and use exit interviews to REALLY find out why an employee is leaving.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good product- Bad management

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Union City, CA

I worked at Abaxis full-time for more than a year

ProsAs a Veterinary Technician the products could make your job easier- if they work.
Great group of clinics to work with across the country.

ConsManagement of the customer service group is poor at best.
No training given- you are supposed to figure it out yourself.
"Customer service" is all lip service- it's all about the number of calls made per day, not about the end result (happy customers and higher sales)

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen an employee goes to HR to report their manager for harassment and retaliation take it seriously. You should do actual exit interviews with people who have left the customer service department to find out what is really going on.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
