Pros

Decent benifits are ok but could be cheaper since it is a health company

Cons

No Bonus structure for sales position
Little freedom to perform job in a way that would benefit company employee and most important Participatn
Unrealistic metrics for all employees
Little to no growth opportunity’s
Raises are insignificant and do not even make a difference
No recognition for performance
Upper management is very secretive and vague tries to hide the truth and answers your question by leaving you even more questions.
Very unstable environment leaving you with a lack of job stability and constantly walking on egg shells or looking over your back.
Not a job that inspires greatness out of its employee’s
No efforts to keep motivation or moral up
Management yell and belittle their employee’s in front of other employee’s and openly discusses short comings of one employee with another. Agents are not giving opportunities to express their frustrations openly without fear of corrective action harassment or loss of job. Agents are forced to cower to the managers in fear.

Advice to Management

Take care of your employee's and they will take care of you. The bottome line is not always what is most important. Live the Alere values. And treat employee's with dignity and respect.

    Pros

    It is a very dynamic organization to work for. Change is constant at Alere. If you like to manage change and like the feeling of a different company every couple of years, Alere would be the place.

    Cons

    Because of the constant change, there is constant chaos. Training resources do not rank high on the list of priorities, so many things are learn as you go. The atmosphere has also become much more political in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to what made Alere good to begin with - quality and service. The profits will take care of themselves.
