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

    Pros

    Molecular Devices is an operating company of Danaher, which is a large conglomerate that owns Danaher Coulter, Leica, and other big life science companies. This gives employees some exposure to sister companies. As of this writing the company is trying to rebrand itself, so there might be some hope for the future. The location in the heart of Silicone Valley is a big plus. This company is primarily medical research instrumentation hardware design and manufacturing company so lots to do if you are an electrical/mechanical/optical engineer.

    Cons

    Because it is a medium size company part of the large conglomerate (Danaher) there is allot of process, even for creative work like software engineer. This can be seen as a positive for some people though.

    Advice to Management

    Most managers that I worked are doing a great job, but sometimes it feels that there is paralysis over analysis. So, take more risk.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Molecular Devices.

    Interview

    Typical, multilevel interview process, phone interview, in person local interview, in person headquarters interview, HR provides job offer & details then awaits your response. Managers were previously FSEs, interview with Engineering department was a nice surprise but that Engineer is no longer with the company. (Read the corporate reviews & see if you can figure out why he left). Corporate focus is on bottom line so be sure to play up the Dollars you can deliver over customers you can satisfy.
