Lack of Organization and Direction

Associate Development Scientist (Former Employee) Brea, CA

ProsGenerous with employee perks such as taking them out to paid lunches and having company events. Also understanding of giving time off in advance.

ConsWorkers are very cliquish; favoritism is visible. Very poor organization, lack of an established hierarchy/system within R&D groups which leads to workers being confused in what they're assigned. Management expects a lot from workers/contractors with lack of training and proper guidance from management. Because of this, workers (especially contractors) are thrown under the bus for their mistakes rather than management even though they make mistakes themselves.

Most people within the company lack confidence in where the company's heading for the future ever since its acquisition by Danaher.

Advice to Senior ManagementExecutive/senior management should give Mid/lower managers more freedom so that they can effectively assign a hierarchy of position so that management can effectively assign tasks to their employees and be less stressed out.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
