I have been working at Bio-Rad Labs full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Relatively secure
Conservative thinking means they won't make any huge, risky gambles
Small enough that you will often get exposure to a lot of different areas
Global company, which can introduce an interesting and challenging dynamic

Cons

Being conservative means that they will sometimes be unwilling to take a chance on committing to something and by the time they do, it is often too late
Limited resources for R&D results in tough compromises
Limited IP portfolio can limit the areas that they can enter into and add extra financial burden to products

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more wiling to open the purse strings when considering acquisitions that will help you stay competitive
