Decent Job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Goleta, CA

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

ProsCompetitive salary, nice people, bonus and 401K match, great work/life balance, nobody seemed to be micromanaged, promoted from within.

ConsHealth benefits weren't that great, building and cubicles were so old, it really needed to be updated. Seemed Goleta location was a cash cow for the rest of company.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend a little money on the small perks for employees. It really does make a difference.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good place to work with lot's of travel across the US and occasional international travel.

Applications Engineer (Current Employee)
Billerica, MA

I have been working at Bruker full-time for less than a year

ProsYou get to travel the US and other parts of the world.

ConsTravel is 50-90% with with some occasional international trips to Switzerland, Canada, Germany, France, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompany is loosely organized. Employees occasionally (and unnecessarily) "figure things out as they go." If these situations were addressed by management, the underlying business would improve greatly.

Lack of coherent training program made it difficult to do my job in the field.

Field Service Engineer (Former Employee)
Madison, WI

I worked at Bruker

ProsAwsome middle management. The older Engineers really know their stuff and when I had a problem they were always open to helping in any way possible. Also field engineers have a high degree of freedom in setting their schedule.

ConsTo illustrate the training issues... i was working on a new system specifically designed for a FAB environment. I was to be the expert. There was no training program for this device and when they sent me to Germany for two weeks to learn about the tool they didn't even have on there so I spent two weeks watching paint dry and trying to find something to learn. Every one was nice and helpful enough but they planned the trip poorly. This was common in Bruker.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter training! I would have stayed if I would have had a clue as to where I was headed and how to do my job. I really tried to learn but after two and a half years I was offered a better possition with my old company so I took it. I was very frustrated.

Great people with long histories at the company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Bruker

ProsIndustry leader for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment.
Friendly team members with a "can-do" attitude.

ConsThey focus on servicing the research industry. If funding levels decrease, so do sales. However, this issue is mitigated by their global footprint.
