    I have been working at Sartorius (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people, dedicated, intelligent, and diverse. Fantastic products that you could be proud of. Innovative, global reaching. and very much so still can feel warm and like a family

    Cons

    Lack of promotion potential or growth. Certain divisions can become very political and toxic. Recent growth in size is threatening to ruin the corporate culture into one that is focused only on the bottom line and not the bigger picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on perfecting what you are very good at, and not spreading resources so thin that you cannot be the best at anything. Remember to focus on the customer's needs and wants - that what drives the business

    I worked at Sartorius full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    International coworker. Will listen to all your ideas. Two computer screens. Flexible work hours. Many positions offered travel. Wanted you to learn.

    Cons

    Management does not have your back. Don't bother making a complaint to hr. They are friends with the bullies. Traveling was great, but they will not pay for half of the expenses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someone makes multiple complaints about another coworker than something should be done.

    Pros

    Lots of products to sell. Well known by customers. Some support staff really want to do their best to support the customer.

    Cons

    OK if you are a guy. Might not be the best choice if you are a woman. Management is in Germany.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training and on-boarding of new hires. Be honest with your team.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, excellent products, good benefits, integrity, R&D, access to management.

    Cons

    Products hard to deliver making customer service a nightmare. Promotions and raises are scant, even for good performers. Communication with Germany is horrible and causes many delays and unhappy customers. Hard to know who to contact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve lead times. Streamline order processing. Needs way better responsiveness from Germany. Get back to focusing on customers. Promote from within.

    I have been working at Sartorius full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in field includes numerous perks like Annual Sales Meetings (ie. Aruba, Puerto Rico, Jamaica), company car or allowance, annual bonus, flexible schedule, and more.

    Cons

    In the field there is little support or structure. The only way to receive jobs notifications is from email. Paperwork is all done in outdated Word documents. Hard to get ahold of people for support when needed. All changes go through Germany. The US is like the red-headed step-child of Germany.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more structure for Field Service Engineers.

    I have been working at Sartorius full-time

    Pros

    industry leader in biotechnology equipment, knowledgeable employees at the cutting edge of the industry

    Cons

    Management has made many rash, unstable decisions over the past few years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think before you act. It is better to base decisions on achieving long term goals rather than short term ones.

    Former Employee - R&D Technician in Concord, CA

    I worked at Sartorius full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This was a great place to work, with an excellent management and corporate organizational structure. The R&D department works fluidly and flawlessly for such a large organization. This place has all the benefits of a large corporation without any of the drawbacks.

    Cons

    They were too focused on cutting cost and moved off shore. Based on what I could gather it had nothing to do with not being able to make a profit and everything to do with making much more money at the expense of their work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company management should learn that there are huge benefits to keeping an R&D location in technologically advanced hot beds such as the San Francisco Bay Area and not consider moving offshore so lightly.
