    I worked at Abaxis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people. Great products. If you work here you will succeed if you execute well and strive to do well.

    Cons

    Lots of paperwork. The devil is in the details.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Abaxis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people. My coworkers kept me showing up each day.

    Cons

    Poor management. No sign of appreciation for staff that is forced to endure inexperienced management.

    Advice to Management

    Show some appreciation for staff. Your "temp employees", show up every day and work just as hard as your other employees.

    I worked at Abaxis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworker. Fast paced environment (for medical device assembler position). Nice facility.

    Cons

    You started out as a temp hired through temp agency, so they can lay you off at any time. Lots of sudden unexpected laid-off. You can still be a temp even after working for almost a year. You have to compete with the other temps for favoritism hoping that you'll be picked to be permanent. As a temp, you will have no benefit. While working at Abaxis, do try to look for a backup job as you can get laid off at any time.

    I worked at Abaxis as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of work, therefore you're busy. Good and positive environment.

    Cons

    Hire you on contract, and promise to make your permanent and kick you out as if you did something wrong in the company. Upper level management positions staff is pretty rude, and almost think they own the company, therefore they run with no work ethics or employee suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    Please be open about the position and tell the employee that this is an 3 months, or 6 months position. Do not give false hope of making your employment permanent and dumping them the second day. Since company is doing so great, you might need to find someone to write business ethics, employee management.

    I have been working at Abaxis full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great product - too expensive though.

    Cons

    Management team is out of touch with reality.

    Advice to Management

    Make a change in the R&D leadership. Decouple Chairman and CEO roles. Place more value on talented people and solid strategy than margins. Work to reduce the price of the product so that more people can use it.
