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

Pros

Most of the colleagues are courteous and pleasant to work with. The turn around used to be low. I get along with my manager.

Cons

But now, the turn around is high especially since it has been bought by Danaher. We have much less benefits than before. There is a lot of bureaucracy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be less penny pincher. We no longer have expresso coffee because it costs too much...
There is no longer a choice for an HMO health insurance. The PPO is bad.

    Pros

    Good work environment. Fair amount of freedom makes for a comfortable work environment.
    Number of interesting projects to work on with new technical hurdles to overcome all the time.

    Cons

    Lack of vision from management, though this has been slowly improving recently.
    Too much focus on following methodologies without enough critical thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on more concise and constrained targets. We should focus on creating features in products that will help to satisfy the 80% of our customers instead of adding complexity through esoteric features that few will ever use.

    Working towards small focused and well defined goals will help increase moral and focus and quality of work. Too often are we chasing the big goal which may be years away which leads to loss of drive and passion for achieving the goal over time.

    Having entry level positions in the engineering department required to be hired on as hourly and forcing them to punch a clock is not going to help draw in new talent.
