Don't take management's word for it.

I have been working at VWR International

Pros

Decent benefits
Gym and trainers available at work for all employees
A lot of genuinely good employees working here

Cons

Below average pay for the position
Overstaffed departments make work slow and make us seem unproductive
Management seems hesitant to take employee ideas and suggestions seriously
Upward advancement blocked unless you're willing to kiss some shoes
Departments are very clique-y

Advice to ManagementAdvice

AT LEAST attempt to make good on promises you make to your employees about advancement opportunities. Stop hiring outside from the company and promote from within, you have a wealth of underused human capital here. Stop using Non-GAAP financial ratios in your employee forums; your employees aren't all stupid, some of them know you're pulling the wool over their eyes.

    I have been working at VWR International

    Pros

    VWR has an excellent building, great location. It also offers on-site gym for its employees. Workings hours are great as well.

    Cons

    I would suggest VWR International to offer more professional training classes since some of its employees are not too familiar with Microsoft offices, better tuition reimbursement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership / Management are great @ VWR. Most managers are very flexible with their staff, working from home, using the gym during lunch or even working hours. As long as you get your work done.
