I have been working at IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The overall mood and vibe is very positive and optimistic. The benefits are good. "They" seem to care if the employees are happy. Scheduling is flexible (department and position- dependent).

Cons

The constantly changing priorities and the resource allocation that goes along with it can be frustrating. Also frustrating is that Engineering raises and promotions don't keep pace with the market. New Employees will invariably be hired at higher salaries than existing employees at the same level.

    I worked at IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Health Insurance and a 401k plan.

    Cons

    Do not even consider working in the Customer Support department here if you have any ambition to move up at all, you will never get out of it. Poor management in this department who have no idea what you actually do and a Supervisor who only got their job because they refused to answer phones. Communication is totally lacking between departments and the corporate structure means that any chance, which is rare, is extremely slow. Stress levels extremely high and pay too low.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time and effort to listen to those that work for you and understand their needs instead of always putting the cart before the horse and just letting them get on with it.
