    Pros

    In Deutschland hat QIGEN gute Vergütungen und ist eine gute "Sprungbrett"-Firma, um ein wenig Erfahrung zu sammeln, bevor man zu einem besseren Arbeitgeber weiterzieht. Insgesamt freundliche Atmosphäre.

    In Germany, QIAGEN has good benefits and it's a good "starter" company to get a little experience before moving on to a better employer. Friendly atmosphere, generally.

    Cons

    Hohe Erwartungen in Sachen Überstunden werden nicht durch entsprechende Gehälter gedeckt. Sehr wenig Aufstiegsmöglichkeiten in allen Abteilungen. Schlechte interne Kommunikation, besonders während Veränderungen und Umstrukturierungen. Zwischen 2011 und 2013 gab es bedeutsame Umstrukturierungen, die die Stimmung beschädigt und Verwirrung gestiftet haben. Kein Anschein von langfristiger Planung jenseits der nächsten Quartalszahlen. Viele Manager geben zu, wenig oder gar keine Management-Ausbildung zu haben.

    High expectations in terms of overtime are not met by decent salaries. Very few career opportunities in any department. Poor internal communications, especially during changes and reorganizations. From 2011-2013, going through significant reorganizations, affecting morale and creating confusion. No sense of long-term plan beyond the next quarterly results. Many managers admit to having little or no management training.

    Pros

    QIAGEN honored promises made to employees by CLC bio throughout and after the acquisition (as far as I'm aware).

    Vacation time is reasonable

    Health insurance options are incredible.

    Cons

    Raises seem to max out at cost of living. Any additional compensation is done through bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hear and react to the people on the ground in a timely manner.
