    I have been working at Bruker full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bruker has amazing design engineers providing cutting-edge innovations in the analytical instrumentation industry. Day-to-day life as an employee focuses on satisfaction of the customers, not bringing up the stock numbers for the upcoming quarter. The company is still small and mobile; there are plenty of opportunities for growth and advancement. This reviewer's impression is that the best days are ahead, it is not an ossifying dinosaur like the big players in this industry.

    Cons

    As it is a small company and customers are widespread, travel requirements (domestic and international) are considerable until company growth supplies more regional travel requirements. A downside to the diverse workforce is that cultural and language differences occasionally create communication challenges. Availability of resources and logistics cans sometimes be a challenge because of the small organization.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communications! READ emails! Quit re-inventing the wheel. Improving communication will more efficiently utilize resources

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bruker (San Jose, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    interview from hell, very unprofessional. Interviewer does not read your resume, neither they believe anything you say or present. The only thing he believes in is what FB, Twitter and Instagramm account of people who happened to have the same name as you are have to show and say. I happened to have a very common name and no presence in social media, just LinkedIn.
