    I worked at Sartorius full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling and ability to develop self-sufficiency, project management and sales experience.

    Cons

    Like some of the other reviews, very limited to non-existent upward mobility or career development. Training for other than sales reps is also non-existent.
    Overall company is run by European head which can be difficult for U.S based employees.

    Advice to Management

    Some business areas are better than others. Leadership and support from management is lacking and needs to be greatly improved.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, not micromanaged

    Cons

    Absolutely no growth very flat US organization. Put unqualified managers in position without posting jobs. No levels and top talent is not recognized. Little to no raises.

    Advice to Management

    You spend so much time training you should work on retaining top talent and making them want to stay. Also lower lead time and cost on FMT products. Need to streamline operations and work on communications, especially with quality support. Also reviews and salary should be linked.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

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