Pros

Hard working Accounting and Finance Groups; Strong FP&A Manager leadership;Collaborated efforts within Accounting and FP&A teams. Strong system administration support in Hyperion Enterprise. Flexible working environment.

Cons

Lack of fair communication and/or leadership from VP Finance to his staff. Financial system upgrade to Hyperion Planning or EssBase is recommended. Reduntant reporting submission requirements to two different systems at the month end close.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Weekly staff meeting within the team is recommended. The management should drive the whole team to a better performance in financial reporting process.

    Current Employee - Manager  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Current Employee - Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Molecular Devices full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Small, easy to get to know the people. MolDev leveraged the Danaher Business System models to great internal improvements since the acquisition

    Cons

    The various functions are very siloed and don't communicate or work well together. All emphasis is on making sure your metric spreadsheets don't have red cells in them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look employees in the eye and say hello when you pass them in the hall.

    Current Employee - Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Molecular Devices full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good salary and benefits
    - Access to the global Danaher careers network
    - Teaching of the DBS system (better than I thought so long as you're motivated to learn)

    Cons

    - Senior management team (VP level) provide poor leadership (e.g. just make it happen rather than how can we solve this)
    - Very high attrition rate
    - Lack of promotions from within

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very keen to see what will happen in the next 3-6 months. Hopefully the new president will look to clear out some of the fat at the VP level and bring about some real growth for 2012.
