    Pros

    Free gym. Good cafeteria. Two weeks vacation at the end of the year; 6 sick days a year. Two weeks PTO. (note just don't abuse these privileges) Great people. Great leaders. A lot of freedom to move around and the company will promote people as long as they have the right skills and values. importantly, stable job (a place that you could make a career out of it).

    I worked at Alere full-time

    Pros

    The pluses were training, supportive supervisors and cooperative staff. They were also flexible when it came to talking time off.

    Cons

    Sometimes the sales goals were difficult to reach. They kept increasing the productivity goals but it was manageable but stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more time for researching and followup.

    I worked at Alere full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, great people, the RnD department was a great technical learning experience, lots of fun activities, beer every friday. Just a fantastic place to work...

    Cons

    Until the aquisition, and everything slowly started to change.

    Advice to Management

    Try to capture some of the culture that was lost. Multiple rounds of layoffs doesn't help.
