    Intelligent people, good environment, regardless of education input is valued.

    Keep corporate communications clear and transparent. Limit reorganization and finish reorgs in a timely manner.

    Need to figure out the structure of the field organization and find a way to work with multiple distributors with exclusive brands

    I have been working at EMD Millipore full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Location. Great dedicated hardworking people. Salaries and Benefits are strong for the area. Substantial influx of Capital. Solid Growth. Make a product that makes a difference in everyone's lives.

    Cons

    Recent management changes have lead to a lack of trust. Transparency is not a value that is practiced. Manipulation of people, constant changes to org. structure, pushing people beyond comfort, and lack of anything positive to say, have really hurt the company in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    Think about people as people, not pieces in a chess game.

    Pros

    Work with great scientists. Great learning experience for a new grad!

    Cons

    As a temp, I was laid off without any notice. Which I guess is how it works.

    I have been working at EMD Millipore full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits/compensation package. Promotes working from home (depending on job and management). Concerned about employee welfare/morale.

    Cons

    Due to site relocation, distance has become a factor. Currently, there are "interim" challenges due to site consolidation, which I expect will work out over time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build strong interaction/support within the management team and this will trickle down.

    Pros

    Growth and opportunity is there. You just need to be active in getting yourself there.

    Cons

    Too many changes in projects and leadership which kind of puts a hold on your growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Work closely with individuals instead of just being the person overlooking things.
