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!

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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.
