    I have been working at IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people - so different from other employees you find in a metropolitan area (like Boston). There is a genuine caring in the company for the work and the people. It is a collaborative environment where your ideas can be shared with other. Feedback and support is great.

    Cons

    Work load is heavy but the vision for where the company wants to go is there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your customers and your employees.

    I have been working at IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The overall mood and vibe is very positive and optimistic. The benefits are good. "They" seem to care if the employees are happy. Scheduling is flexible (department and position- dependent).

    Cons

    The constantly changing priorities and the resource allocation that goes along with it can be frustrating. Also frustrating is that Engineering raises and promotions don't keep pace with the market. New Employees will invariably be hired at higher salaries than existing employees at the same level.

    I worked at IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Intern program was fantastic; we were treated well. As far as the company: Good strategic vision, innovative company, very well-kept facilities and good culture. Well-managed and full of passionate people who strive to be the best.

    Cons

    A bit large, meaning that sometimes you feel lost (not in the IDEXX buildings, but meaning that there are lots of employees.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage with your employees a bit more, and make yourselves better known to the interns. Bar my own executive supervisor, I saw very little of the executives while there—I wish I had seen more of them.

    Pros

    Great communication with executive team and HR business partners. You are never left alone they are always there to help.

    Very upbeat company! Always positive outlook...management motivates staff and rewards them for hard work. No micromanagers here... In fact, managers are sent to orientation where they learn to communicate with staff correctly.

    Innovative! Very Google like. IDEXX is committed to quality products and service , providing a positive work atmosphere and creating corporate culture of a family business.

    They actually care about their staff! I can say this about my department, my up line... They listen to my suggestions and give me the opportunity to implement new strategies. It's called having faith in your people... IDEXX has it!

    I found my dream job!

    Cons

    Pay scale is a bit off. There should be a bigger gap than $2- 3 dollars an hour between staff and manager salary. Salary should mirror experience, reputation and skills....not where you live or based on previous managers salary.

    There is also a little too much interference from low level techs (from other labs) with little or no experience in matters that don't concern them. But I suspect IDEXX is already working on this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
