Pros

Very good products. Diverse product portfolio. Very good technical support staff. History of innovating and creating markets. Pay and commission plan very good. Excellent name recognition.

Cons

Not price competitive. Naive marketing and upper management. Company has cut many people who held crucial product knowledge and knowledge about the inter-workings of the company and it has become very difficult to get things done internally.

Advice to Management

Trust your sales people to manage their territories.

    Cons

    very high stress with no end in sight

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they tell you that the level of stress is too high, and that they would (and will) leave if the opportunity arises. They are already leaving, and will continue to do so if things don't turn around soon.

  2. The Leadership of China is unexperienced. The global leadership is a very bad management.

    Pros

    This company has a lot of good products.

    Cons

    Currently, the global leadership don't know how to do a bigger business after Invitrogen acquired Applied Biosystems. The CEO is only purchasing for bigger business but doesn't know how to maintain the long-term business.

    Advice to Management

    The current global leadership is full of niave person and kiss-asses. They don't know how to respect a glorious businss which they never touched before and learn from it.
