    Pros

    QIAGEN honored promises made to employees by CLC bio throughout and after the acquisition (as far as I'm aware).

    Vacation time is reasonable

    Health insurance options are incredible.

    Cons

    Raises seem to max out at cost of living. Any additional compensation is done through bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Please hear and react to the people on the ground in a timely manner.
