Be rather careful...

I have been working at VWR International

ProsIf you are ambitious you can grind out a rather decent salary and have some good foot in the door experience working for a biomedical distribution company.

ConsManagement is rather disorganized and promotions are hard to come by. Probably the single greatest downside to this company is a lack of corporate loyalty to their employees. Benefits have been slashed as has the work force, however since outsourcing had occurred there is this double standard made by VWR management for employees to dedicate themselves to the company with little to no job security.

Advice to Senior ManagementLead by example and hold yourself to the same level of dedication as your employees. Also if profits are down you should not be receiving bonuses it is bad for morale and bad for business.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
