    Pros

    Small microbiology lab so you get to learn all methods the lab performs. Training was very good even though they expected you to learn a lot in short amount of time.

    Cons

    Hours tend to vary and have to work on the weekend. The pay is not very good especially with the high standards they have for the work you do.

    Pros

    Get to learn a lot about all kinds of testing. Independent work environment

    No management structure. Hard to advance and little recognition for hard work. They will work you to the bone and pay you nothing. They do not value their employees at all.

    Pros

    Nice people work at Eurofins. Most of the people there are doing their job everyday and working hard to support their families.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Low pay. No promotions. Overwork and underpay employees. Do not deal with personnel issues, so problems increase over time. Very rarely does Management discipline employees when rules are broken, even when it's an HR issues. Managers mistreat or talk down to employees regularly because they were never trained to be managers. Most of the mangers are a good scientists, but very poor at managing people. Some employees often break the rules and are not fired, which upsets the other employees. Employees are expected to work long hours and most departments are understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance needs great improvement. Pay people a more realistic salary. Resolve personnel issues instead of ignoring them to avoid additional problems in the future so you can do a better job of retaining your more highly motivated workers. Show people they are valued with promotions or even small raises. Follow HR protocols and discipline employees who do not follow the Employee Handbook.

    Pros

    Great people to work with in the lab as well as in corporate.

    Cons

    The managers had no idea how to manage the people or how to help make sure you understood your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs more training on how to manage people and less on how to micromanage the department.

    Pros

    Good Compensation and Free cabs
    Senior management is good specially IT head and HR.

    Cons

    Region based politics.
    Some immature junior resources given responsibility of managing team since manager was not so efficient specially agroscience. This brings down the overall team morale.
    Food is pathetic but it is free..
    Some senior people try to change the cab routes.
    Some managers feel that are very good in process even though they have very limited knowledge.
    People who shout more considered are people with good knowledge in agroscience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow people with experience to handle the team. Immatured people are making it a mess and making others unhappy about the company and team.

    Pros

    The Company believed in me right from the beginning and within 18 months allowed me to implement suggestions to increase productivity and profits. They did, I did and we did!

    Cons

    Our off-site managers for our site, being so very busy at their jobs too, used the basic trend that if you are good at your job/position and there are no problems, leave you alone to continue. It would mean so much more if every once in a while there was an Atta-boy/girl vs only contacting us when there is a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I guess I would have to say, again, it would mean so much if every once in a while there was an Atta-boy/girl. Everyone likes to be reminded they are appreciated as an employee. It lifts their spirits, gives them a since they are also important to the Company. They will work harder to keep the Company successful. Thank you
