    Pros

    If you want to work at a world class organization in high tech / Life Sciences, and enjoy all the benefits of a great company and great lifestyle being in Maine, there is one company: IDEXX.

    IDEXX is an entrepreneurial growth company with a deep passion for serving customers, and winning in the marketplace. Also, a great place to work if you love animals, since the companies products extend their lives and improve their health.

    Cons

    The pace of change is fast, so you have to be prepared to learn quickly and go outside your comfort zone. If you're looking for a 9 to 5 job, there are those opportunities, but don't expect rapid progression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on IDEXX as a growth company, don't get sucked into big company approaches and fads!

    Pros

    great work environment, emphasis on employee development, caring coworkers, experienced leaders, I rarely heard a bad thing about the company both inside and out

    Cons

    some management is not great, different departments should collaborate more (sometimes the company can feel very siloed)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    work life balance personal growth benefits

    Cons

    Human Resources, Holiday Scheduling is not the best company decides to give the all employees off but have to take it unpaid if they don't have the vacation time when people are willing to work so as not to take a hit on there hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More Virtual employment would open a vast majority of applicants both internal and external. Also Corporate headquarters being in Maine turns people off as there is limited opportunities compared to other regional locations.

    Pros

    IDEXX is an amazing company for what it offers to the veterinarians. The number of new products and tests that come out that help vets with their clients is just amazing. And you can readily see it in the way customers respond. The new move to expand the sales force to better serve customers, and make the job easier for the reps is brilliant. With smaller territories, we will be able to spend even more time with each of our customers, helping them become better practices, and helping more pets and their owners in the process. I also love it that the company reimburses me for taking my pet to the vet to run IDEXX bloodwork, and then allows me see the all the results online with our new software. What other company does that?

    Cons

    You must be committed to your job, this is not a place just to 'get by'. I wouldn't want it any other way, and I certainly won't want teammates with that attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the new, much more flexible paid time off policy for 2015 - thanks for listening
