It was a professional place to work

Customer Service (Former Employee)

I worked at Alere full-time

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow more time for researching and followup.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Alere

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsVery positive and collaborative atmosphere!

Consnone that i have encountered thus far with the actual company. As a temporary contract worker here, there's only the short-term nature of contract positions in general that I would have to say is a con for me right now but that's not specific to the company

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
