    I worked at Inverness Corporation

    Pros

    The team environment created and fostered by Peter Indiveri complled people to do their very best for the company. He has proven leadership experience, was effective at developing talent and leading multi-disciplinary teams. Success was rewarded and recognized as earmed. He mentored managers to help them improve, but he did hold people accountable for lack of success.

    Cons

    The company was not independent. It was owned by a Corporate parent company and management was prevented from pursuing some business opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This was one of the best opportunities for individual/team success. I wish it would have continued.

    Inverness, Division of Cookson was a Great Place to work, until Financial Meltdown, & it was sold.

    I worked at Inverness Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was a great place with great bosses. Then the Financial Meltdown in 2008 and things got tough. Raises frozen, Matching 401k ended, Took a 10% deduction in salary, all needed to keep company going. My Division always made money at 25 - 26.5% ROI, but the other divisions did not. They laid off 300 people on Jan 26, 2012, and then sold it on May 1, 2012 to Warren Buffet, and Cookson, who owned Inverness went back to the United Kingdom.

    Cons

    It was a Great Place to work, until the Financial Meltdown in other divisions of the company. They let the Best CEO they ever had go. Retired him after 30 plus years. After that they let my division VP go, despite the best year in 25 plus years of operation. They have been steadily losing money since then.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not my place to question Upper Management, and I no longer work there.
