    Good company on average

    Associate Pricing Analyst (Current Employee) Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

    ProsNice environment, nice people, good training systems (at least awareness to arrange different trainings to suit employees' / sometimes company's needs) , flexible time...In all, a place worth staying for one who's willing to follow the suit

    ConsTeam-work spirit is not very high (at least in my team, everyone's good at just doing their part of job). Cross-department cooperation is not very effective due to poor communications. Manager's skills are yet to be developed. Salary is so-so, on par in the industry to say the best.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink about how to really motivate employees as some tremendous talents are buried in daily routines.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The Leadership of China is unexperienced. The global leadership is a very bad management.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

    ProsThis company has a lot of good products.

    ConsCurrently, the global leadership don't know how to do a bigger business after Invitrogen acquired Applied Biosystems. The CEO is only purchasing for bigger business but doesn't know how to maintain the long-term business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe current global leadership is full of niave person and kiss-asses. They don't know how to respect a glorious businss which they never touched before and learn from it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
