Senior Finance Manager (Current Employee)

    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… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
