Pros – There was a broad mix of talent ranging from engineering to sales. The company was widely diversified in its markets which helped mitigate the impact of the economic downturn.
Cons – A substantial amount of growth was through acquisition which meant the company was extremely fragmented in its processes.
Advice to Senior Management – Take a longer term strategic business approach. Managing quarter to quarter will eventually become problematic for long term growth.
Pros – Work is really good and introduction to new technologies.
Cons – Do not convert into full time.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Pros – Good benefits, I liked and miss the people. I got the opportunity to do some interesting work there.
Cons – Spending to much time writing reports and presentations. This time would be better spent working in the lab. Conflicts between instrument division and reagent division. Instrument Division wants to sell it's high margin products. Reagent division wants to sell their products. Combining instruments and reagent doesn't work well. New acquisitions watch for layoffs. Matrix management s
Advice to Senior Management – Good Luck.
– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – It truly is a company you can believe in, we have a great purpose and make things better not for just people who can benefit from our products but for the users as well. We do a good job and it shows.
Cons – VERY unfair on treatment between co-workers. Uneven pay scale and bonuses among same job titles. The glass ceiling seems so far very low and senior management seems to pacify WAY too much.
Advice to Senior Management – Open your eyes and stop biting the hands that are feeding you. Also learn to recognize people a bit more and stop pacifying people and actually listen to them and act.
Pros – Most of the people I have worked with were intelligent and professional. The product brand is well known and respected in the industry. Current president of LAS is a great leader and respected within customer circles.
Cons – Some people in leadership/management are stretched too thin with reporting to develop their direct reports. Many of the products sold are "me too" and were not the first to the market. Key investments are made that do not benefit all or a majority of customer markets.
Advice to Senior Management – Recognize and promote employees who deserve it. Find R&D projects that can produce a product for ALL customers big and small.
