I have been working at Bio-Rad Laboratories full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good sense of community. Most people try to do a good job. Some things improved after a big SAP launch.

Cons

People want to do a good job, but don't always know how. There is lots of talk about best practices and world class structures , but its just talk. Lots of change has happened and will continue to happen. But its hard for the rank and file to see the benefits

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is an absurd amount of work to do. Either reduce the overall workload or increase the staff level.

    I have been working at Bio-Rad Laboratories full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Stable
    - Very friendly atmosphere where you can walk up to anyone's desk for help
    - People tend to stay at Bio-Rad for years and years
    - Recently, some of the perennially poor performing employees have left. I hope that trend continues

    Cons

    - A manufacturing company that happens to build software, not a software company
    - Lots of unnecessary paperwork in the software world
    - Older average age = this is the way we do things
    - Pay is below industry average
    - Each person is expected to manage too many projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please figure out a better why to eliminate poor performing employees. It seems like Bio-Rad can be a place where somewhere goes to die instead to flourish and grow.
