    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.

    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
    Former Employee - R&D Technician in Concord, CA

    I worked at Sartorius Stedim full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Most managers do not Mico manage. The new office is pleasent to work in. Their benifits package is pretty good.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth within the company. They don't always post all jobs internally. Their yearly increases are very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great if they spent more effort in hiring within the company and gave their employees a chance to move up.
