Pros

Friendly and sociable staff.
Good sense of team spirit.
Flexi-time is useful.
Nice site location.
The Christmas meal and summer barbecue are welcome events.

Cons

Very poor pay and unfair conditions. Some staff get a bigger holiday allowance and are paid significantly more than others to do the same job, often to a lower standard.
No opportunities for professional or career development: Eurofins almost never promote internally, always hiring externally and never consider using their own employees abilities and skills.
High staff turnover due to dissatisfaction with the unfair pay and working conditions.
No pay increase for three years yet there has been a lot of money spent on managers and their expenses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the pay and working conditions fairer for laboratory staff - it is demoralising to have wildly differing pay levels for doing the same job.
Give current staff opportunities to progress their careers within the company.

    Pros

    Vous êtes formé pour progresser dans votre travail.

    The labs are nice & the food is free
    You are trained to get better at what you do

    Cons

    Bien que les collègues étaient sympas on ne se voyait pas souvent.
    Le travail est monotone et il y a peu de possibilités de promotion.
    À part ça, la direction ne tient pas compte de vos demandes.

    Although colleagues were nice we do not see much each others
    The work is boring and you have few possibilities of promotion
    Aside the management do not take care of your requests
