Monotonous, boring and limited in growth.

I worked at Alere full-time (more than a year)

Pros

- a good place to fine-tune counseling skills & work with a variety of patients.
- great coworkers
- can work from home

Cons

- supervisors micro-manage like I have never seen before
- profit-driven, which can often hinder the quality of care
- lack of respect from supervisors/managers - would rather have greater employee turnover than invest in their current employees
- downtime - actually made me feel like I was wasting my life at the company/doubt career, which has never happened at another position

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust in your employees more to provide quality care without having to nit-pick calls to death just to find a way to deduct a point on call reviews

    Former Contractor - Document Control Specialist in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Alere as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people at Alere were very friendly and knowledgeable about their work. Work atmosphere was laid back, could wear sweats everyday if one wanted to, and pay was reasonable for work. Alere is also very health focused, always offering lunch-time activities from soccer and yoga to basketball and boot camps.

    Cons

    High turnover and at times upper management couldn't decided what they wanted to do; at times information changed daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to work out an effective time rather then doing it spur of the moment and constantly changing it, thus wasting peoples time and efforts.
