    Former Employee - Global Supply Chain Director in Attleboro, MA

    I worked at Inverness Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was a great place with great bosses. Then the Financial Meltdown in 2008 and things got tough. Raises frozen, Matching 401k ended, Took a 10% deduction in salary, all needed to keep company going. My Division always made money at 25 - 26.5% ROI, but the other divisions did not. They laid off 300 people on Jan 26, 2012, and then sold it on May 1, 2012 to Warren Buffet, and Cookson, who owned Inverness went back to the United Kingdom.

    Cons

    It was a Great Place to work, until the Financial Meltdown in other divisions of the company. They let the Best CEO they ever had go. Retired him after 30 plus years. After that they let my division VP go, despite the best year in 25 plus years of operation. They have been steadily losing money since then.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not my place to question Upper Management, and I no longer work there.
