Good place for a scientist to move into sales or operations

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Brisbane, CA

I have been working at VWR International

Pros-Lots of talented people work here who care about the company
-Management is good about recognizing efforts of strong employees

Cons-Appear to get things done with minimal floor staff, service levels suffer
-Rules in the call center are designed to keep poor employees in line but hurt productivity of top performers
-Virtualization hasn't worked as planned - some employees enjoy low productivity whereas others are extremely busy

Advice to Senior Management-Make the switch to an intuitive order entry system
-Provide outside sales team with more operations training before letting them out into the field

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
