Stable company but not a Wall St darling. Will always be here.

I have been working at Bio-Rad Laboratories full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good work-family balance. Decent place to start your career but then you will bump against the glass ceiling where top management wants no change.

Cons

Top executives have never worked anywhere else and they aren't moving. But man are their salaries increasing even though sales is not. Lacking direction right now.

    Pros

    Trying to think of one pro but drawing a blank.

    Cons

    IT Mgmt is good at bullying contractors to avoid making changes to the IT environment. They work very hard at avoiding work and change. The moral of the IT group is very low. The engineers have zero respect for the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsource IT Management until you find someone the engineers respect.

    I worked at Bio-Rad Laboratories full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    For average or below average performer, there are lot of opportunities. Company promoted personnel based on how can a people talk rather than can do.
    Team workers usually are fine.
    Benefit is not bad.

    Cons

    Innovative thinking is not welcome. Company keep repeating strategies that has been proven not work
     A lots of politics in a public company.
    Company is doing nothing to fix reoccurred issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to get more close look to what really happen in the market
