I have been working at VWR International

Pros

Sales reps and internal teams are truly great here. Alot of talent in the various divisions. Ability to take ownership and develop your career

Cons

VWR needs to focus more on compensating its emloyees. Many sales reps can now go to manufacturer side and make much more money. They should pay the reps more to keep their talent. VWR is paying more in other ways like losing relationships at accounts and training new reps. Little communication from senior management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

more communication is needed about our strategy. Value the worker bee's and pay the reps who perform....no more capping comp plans.

    Pros

    The best thing about working for VWR is that you have the opportunity to work and go to school. The company will pay for you to go to school and the management are very flexable with helping you with school

    Cons

    There are a lot of downsides to working wtih VWR International.
    1. The management at all levels are not as competient as other employers that I have worked for. Their lack of training as leaders and their lack of listening and understanding makes the working environment very unpleasant
    2. The company does not listen to their employees. The company is so one sided that it will only listen to the customer and not the employee, no matter the situation.
    3. Upper management is unexcusably incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managment, listen to your employees, and become better competitors in your own market.
