Pros

Laid back working environment with reasonable expectactations, however, this is very dependent on the department in which you work and your manager. I have experienced a fair workload with reasonable expections and timelines. I have a good level of autonomy, but help is always there when I need it. I haven't experienced an overt amount of competetiveness and there is a good sense of teamwork. They have a generous vacation and benefits package.

Cons

Salary ranges are on the low side comparatively. I have not seen a huge amount of job advancement. Money is sometimes tight for getting new technology and resources.

Advice to Management

Larger salary increases and bonuses would be a great incentive for higher productivity.

    Pros

    Great colleagues to work with who are passionate about their work (at least most of them). You can learn alot from your colleagues, IF they have the time to teach you, IF.

    Cons

    More focused on meeting "numbers" for the short term and not on the long term.

    A lot of the work/projects are done to "satisify" short term (i.e. quick offerings/trouble shooting) goals and not a lot of the work is done for the long term. This can very stressful when “developing and researching” potential new products (especially in less than 6 mths). Work-Life balance is shifted more towards the "Work" than "Life".

    Management may not truly understand the complications involved around the work necessary to complete projects. As they tend to look only at the "numbers" in order to accomplish their goals. Many of the senior managers have not experience the "pains" involved for working at Millipore, since most of them where hired from outside the company.

    Pros

    A large company with above average compensation and benefits. They regularly ask how employees feel about management and the changes taking place.

    Cons

    There seems to be some silos at the sales management level. There are the favored and the not-so-favored. People at the sales and management level are concerned about the Sigma incorporation, and what that means to their job.

    Advice to Management

    Generally communication is good. Be aware of the favoring at the sales management level. This will be important as the Sigma incorporation proceeds.
