I worked at Molecular Devices as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Nice friendly people
Some people have been there a while but I think you have to be in the right position or know the right manager(s).
Good overall work/life balance. The office is pretty empty by 5pm.

Cons

Old, decrepit working conditions (old cubicles, dirty old chairs)
You're always on pins and needles wondering if you're the next to be laid off

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try and build more morale within the company and stop laying off good people.

    I have been working at Molecular Devices full-time (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.
