I have been working at Beckman Coulter full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There have been a lot of changes over the last few years and I finally feel like we're in a position to start doing well. The work is a lot more challenging than in the past - so it's great if you like challenges. It's starting to feel good to be here again.

Cons

The last several years have been difficult. We've got fewer resources than before and sometimes the Danaher corporate standard is a takeaway from what we had before. Managers especially seem to be a bit overwhelmed with some of the changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Love the new Diagnostics president!!!

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Decent benefits
    Pay is really competative
    Company has the best of intentions for their product

    Cons

    The management treat employees poorly . There is no growth opportunities here but they like to pretend opportunities exist. They have made position levels that are meaningless and they think they have fooled employees. They do not promote. The people that should be let go aren't and don't face any accountability, very political environment (who you know not what you know). Company hires unqualified people, also hire a ton of contracts without intentions of hiring them fulltime. There is no challenge to working here, all they want is for you to follow SOPS and get the work done. They want robots and not thinkers. Instead of thinking about situations they react to situations, so processes get implimented without weighing out pros and cons. Change just for the sake of change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think through decisions before implimenting them and hire better canidates. Realize that expecting more work from employees is not the same as challenging employees.

    Pros

    The products help save lives.

    Cons

    As evidenced by the 5 star rating posts, obviously written by the company's HR and or PR people, this company watches every move of their employees. If you want to work there be aware of this. Layoffs are still going on and are embedded in how they operate. If sales are down, they will layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO makes $45 million per year. Instead of laying off people because of bad decisions the executive team made, reduce the executives salaries and bonuses to save money and reduce costs.
