    I worked at Beckman Coulter full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Beckman Coulter at least at the Chaska, Minnesota site is an excellent place to start or continue a career. The company is very focused on staff development, demonstrating the knowledge that well motivated staff is mission critical.

    Cons

    There has been times of unfortunate "inbreeding" by longer term middle management at various sites, that was not properly identified and addressed by upper management. This did damaged product development and subsequent profitability. This type of situation can happen anywhere. The recent acquisition by Danaher is a very positive development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to monitor actual versus reported activities looking for reporting with too much polish. The overall company is well worth the extra effort.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Indianapolis, IN
    Former Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Indianapolis, IN

    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.
