I worked at Alere

Pros

You're helping people quit smoking.

Cons

Crazy amounts of micromanaging. One time my colleague was told over the phone by a customer that his nickname was "Square". And she confirmed by asking, "So, you mean spelled like the side of a cube? Typical spelling of the word 'square'?"He confirmed and so she typed it in. She "failed" the call for not spelling the name back to him. Ha!

    Pros

    Committed and passionate staff that are truly interested in improving the health and well-being of the participants and clients that are served.

    Cons

    Poor forward looking vision. Minimal innovation and severe resource shortages that perpetuate the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest for the future. Find true thought leaders in the industry and lead the industry in innovation rather than following long after others launch and have outcomes for innovative products.

    I worked at Alere full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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