I worked at Beckman Coulter full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The engineers and scientists are generally exceptionally smart. Challenging projects. Product lines that had the means to do good in the world, rather than just make money for the company.

Cons

Middle and upper management often clueless, and communication up and down the management chain may be...modified...to suit the audience. Pay and benefits not on par with the talent of the individuals doing the work: "target" for pay is 90% of "market average".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better at recognizing the people who do the work that pays your salary: the people who are developing the company's products.

    I worked at Beckman Coulter full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very ethical, integrity is promoted and respected; always doing the right thing.

    Cons

    After the acquisition by Danaher, the genuinely caring for people subsided. It's all about business, KPIs, Bowlers and Funnels (spreadsheets illustrating next projects and financial streeeetttttcccchhh goals). Bad for work/life balance, but great for the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A better combination of caring for people/employees with their stretch goals would go a longer way.
