    Employees are cattle. Only directors and above get the money...

    Management (Current Employee)

    ProsGrowing company (although not sure for how long)

    ConsGilles (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 Senior ManagementYour 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Only componsation is good rest is bad.. Arogant people manage everything.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

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

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

    Filthy Restrooms, 10 year old technology and Employee Unfriendly policies

    Tech Lead (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsCabs, Free food (Not good) and friendly people
    Short time onsites.
    Good pay.

    ConsPlease do not join this company. There is no transparency. They tell that job in advanced technologies and after joining you will see that is in very old technologies like classic ASP, VB6 etc. Please be very care full joining in Bangalore location. Also it has filthy rest rooms equivalent to one in bus stands.
    Those who go to short term onsite need to serve company for another 10 months even the onsite is for 2 weeks. Otherwise need to payback the onsite expenditure back to company.
    No understanding of what we are going to work.
    Employee unfriendly, no work from home policy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep a transparency on what exactly employees work. and about the policies
    Please introduce employee friendly policy instead of the unrealistic travel policy.
    Also, note that employees stay in a company based on trust and not based on restricted policies.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Go elsewhere for a decent job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOffice/lab is within 30 minute drive of anywhere in Des Moines

    ConsThe place smells horrible - either like biproduct (dead things) or manure. The pay among lab staff and admin staff below director level is subpar and their health benefits are the worst I've ever seen - over $500 a month employee cost for family insurance. I have been working here as a temp for two months and witnessed many instances of questionable behavior among managers. Example: the administrative area was closed off due to black mold but the lab staff was lied to and told they are just painting that area. The catholic religion/rules are regularly discussed openly by HR staff in front of other staff. I recently took a tour of the laboratories and have never seen a more unhappy group of people. I was offered a permanent position, however, am not interested at any rate. Turnover is extremely high among not only Eurofins Scientific but among all the Eurofins business units (they go by many different names). My two month contract here is almost up and I couldn't be happier. I would rather be unemployed than work here. Beware!! The CEO, Michael Russell, is the only person I have met here that didn't leave me with a feeling of creepiness. A very odd group of people! The administrative staff in the Des Moines location will most likely not have jobs within a couple years as they are slowly moving operations to another service center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
