A company with a family atmosphere.

Technical Support Representative (Former Employee)
Hercules, CA

ProsInformation sharing good through town hall meetings
They are not pretentious or overbearing with a self-inflated value -- they are down-to-earth
They treat their employees well
They don't make tons of money but they try to give any benefits as possible as they can (insurance, etc)
They have a lean workforce (which can be a con if you want to move around within the company)
The leadership, I understand, don't take an exorbitant salary

ConsBeing a niche company, movement from one group to another can be difficult
If you work at Bio-Rad and want to go to another company, it is a difficult commute (to go for an interview, if you buy a house and need to go elsewhere, etc.)

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't change the culture you have established. People like it there. Don't fiddle with things if they aren't broken.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good until a power-hungry, insecure, political director came on the scene
