I worked at Quidel

Pros

They offer fair pay, and Interesting projects. There are many great people, and Quidel enjoys a solid reputation in the industry. If you are coming from R and D, and woud like to learn how a clinical diagnostics firm is run, they put a priority on getting new employees up to speed on regulatory issues.

Cons

Job security and lack of advancement may be an issue in some departments. Many companies in the biotech and diagnostics industry are having to re-assess priorities and direction as the corporate landscape changes. Quidel is no exception. As usual, some projects and divisions are seen as having growth potential. These are given priority when it comes to R and D and marketing expenditures. Other product lines and divisions are used to generate quick money with little emphasis on the future.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If a division or product line does not fit well with the current business model, it might be better for all involved to sell it off, rather than let it die.

    I worked at Quidel full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent training. Pleasant colleagues and extremely professional. The company was very efficient with manufacturing, customer service and technical support.

    Cons

    Quidel has burned some bridges with distributors. They no longer have all of the contracts and positive relationships that they used to have. They have had high employee turnover in the last five years.
