Current Employee - Senior Field Service Engineer in Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Beckman Coulter full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

-Self satisfaction that customers appreciate what we are doing for them. -Great position if you love troubleshooting mechanical devices; challenging and satisfying. -This position pays well, but more would be nice :)

Cons

-Micro-mangement style. -Freedoms and benefits are the thing of the past. -The doom and gloom of layoffs hang over everyones head. -Great and consistent performance is not appreciated. -No one to voice your opinions to (HR, management) without backlash whether or not "it's strictly confidential". I guess I should stop now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manage people please. We are not numbers or robots. Think before you set policies in place. We, in the field, know the right things to do. If someone is taking advantage of the system, please burn them at the stake, not the entire field.

    I worked at Beckman Coulter full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company dealt with lots of great technologies and most of our vendors and clients were fantastic to work with.

    Cons

    Management was lackluster, and due to site consolidation everyone was overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not necessary - Beckman Coulter Genomics was sold off to Integrated Laboratory Systems. It is called ILS Genomics now.
