    Pros

    Small microbiology lab so you get to learn all methods the lab performs. Training was very good even though they expected you to learn a lot in short amount of time.

    Cons

    Hours tend to vary and have to work on the weekend. The pay is not very good especially with the high standards they have for the work you do.

    Pros

    Growing company (although not sure for how long)

    Cons

    Gilles (Martin) Kingdom.
    Employees are pawns. New buzz words: TGHP...Eurofins plan to hire only from without (no internal promotions) to offer top dollars to "Top Grads with High Potential". If you are hoping to advance, sorry, not for you. They want outsiders to come in and measure YOUR efficiency. Oh, and by the way: current Medinet employees? you are about to lose your job to Lancaster....rumor has it, Lancaster is validating a brand new lab to take over all Medinet testing -in secret!...and all current Medinet employees will have to transfer from Chantilly, VA to Lancaster, PA or they are let go...Shhh, it's a secret! How's that for an honest relationship? Beware...this company is not trustworthy! Not the first time and won't be the last time that Eurofins made such an uncaring decision. And they squeeze every drop of your time or you are considered not a team player...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your turnover is only the beginning of your woes. Pay attention more to the welfare of your employees and not just on your networking capital. How many times has Des Moines seen turnover? And now your shared services are being transferred to Lancaster? How long until your Lancaster employees get smart? Eventually, the economic environment will improve and you will not be able to retain any more good people because they will be too smart to stay.

    Pros

    Good Compensation and Free cabs
    Senior management is good specially IT head and HR.

    Cons

    Region based politics.
    Some immature junior resources given responsibility of managing team since manager was not so efficient specially agroscience. This brings down the overall team morale.
    Food is pathetic but it is free..
    Some senior people try to change the cab routes.
    Some managers feel that are very good in process even though they have very limited knowledge.
    People who shout more considered are people with good knowledge in agroscience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow people with experience to handle the team. Immatured people are making it a mess and making others unhappy about the company and team.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Bangalore (India)
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    Pros

    Working here for about 6 months, and i find most of the new projects quite exciting. Most projects are related to LIMS and interface with Robotic devices. It's not Maintenance projects like what we get in Infy or wipro. People are constantly rotated between new projects to ensure skills are utilized properly. Trainings and international travels are encouraged. Lots of team outings and dinners.
    Mostly, all staffs are pampered. Management is very open and friendly. They take feedbacks positively and encourage employees to be vocal - This along makes me quite happy to work here.

    Cons

    Unknown brand in Indian Market.
    Location is in Varthur Kodi, whitefield.
    The Tech Park where Eurofins is situated is a little old. However i heard they are moving to SEZ next year which should resolve this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work of encouraging the feedbacks and taking actions.
    Have more TownHalls.
    Change the food vendor.
