    I have been working at VWR International full-time

    Pros

    The job itself is really pleasant. The flexible and reasonable work hours and free work style make the job enjoyable and employees motivated. Almost all the colleagues (within the same department) are friendly and helping. Internal career change is also encouraged. We also have a very nice office building (with gym).

    Cons

    There's obviously disconnection between departments, which makes it hard to push changes when there are multiple departments involved. Below average pay and slow promotion could create difficulty in acquiring new talents and retaining current employees. Also IT support is slow since they seem to be understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase salary to stop young talents from leaving the company. Promote cross-functional collaboration.
