I worked at Bio-Rad Labs

Pros

Information 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

Cons

Being 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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