I have been working at IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. full-time for 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.

    Pros

    I think overall the management team has the company pointing in the right direction. There is always new stuff to talk about which makes it exciting and we are constantly evolving.

    Cons

    Compensation could be improved a bit, but they are starting to make some strides in changing that area.

    I worked at IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, main campus has many amenities, smart people.

    Cons

    The constant pressure to keep the Street happy means there is always pressure to overproduce. In recent years, there has been some more attempt to put CAG marketing initiatives on a steady, if fast-paced schedule, but then a senior executive will utter a single sentence and everyone will need to double their workload to add a new, unreasonable demand.

    The company touts flexible work schedules, but has actually been pulling back on work at home schedules. This can lead to productivity losses as the new open environment doesn't lend itself to heads down desk work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management lacks critical thinkers. Recent hires have all been yes-men (and I do mean men - there isn't one woman ranked higher than vice president).
