    Good experience as a postdoc

    Industrial Postdoctoral (Current Employee)
    Elkhart, IN

    ProsImmediate supervisor and coworkers were great. Exciting to be working on cutting edge technology.

    ConsI was hired as a contract employee, and it was made clear in little ways that contract employees were not seen as the same as real employees. Confusion regarding company restructuring and lack of employee trust in senior management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmbrace contract employees as much as possible (i.e. allow onsite nurses to give vaccinations to contract employees, don't make contract employees sign in an out every day when non-contract employees don't have to). More transparency and following up on promises to employees during restructuring.

    Company good, but some managers not so much.

    Field Service Engineer III (Former Employee)

    ProsThe Pay, the company car. There were many pros. Loved the profit sharing plan with the stocks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour doing pretty good, keep the profit sharing plans,

    7 year roller coaster ride that brought more chills than thrills.

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    Norwood, MA

    ProsLarge corporation with valuale benefits.

    ConsMinimal growth opportunity due to poor business performance after the acquisition and "integration" of Bayer and Dade Behring. Very disorganized from an executive level. Certain departments are worth working under, but the business approach is full of silos. Seniority is overvalued and talent is extremely undervalued.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink big picture. Management seemed very detached from how their departments and employees contributed to the overall success of the business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company in search of a strategy

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Tarrytown, NY

    ProsThe people, exposure to other sectors and ability to move between sectors

    ConsThrough the years of integration too much change which was more confusing than strategic

    Advice to Senior ManagementPick a strategy and stick with it. Don't promote people to the point of incompetency.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lower than average salary, few opportunities for growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe full benefits are nice to have. Not worrying about health, dental or a savings plan is a relief. The work was not necessarily stressful or overly demanding and I was able to go home to my life after I punched out and "leave work at work," so to speak.

    ConsThe lower-than-average salary is clearly a negative. The way salaries increase (or don't, depending on how the company is doing - and lately that's been pretty poor despite what they say at all of our meetings) is unsettling and unreliable. The subjective scale used to rate employees at end-of-year meetings which then determine your bonuses is unfair. Perhaps my biggest problem with this company is the way which people are promoted - or really, NOT promoted at my site. The longer you are around, the more security you will clearly have but it will literally take YEARS to establish this. You will not be promoted based on skill level or capabilities, but how long you've "stuck around." This is a very old-Reich way of doing things and does not allow new talent to shine. It makes for a stifling atmosphere. Instead, you should work on fostering an atmosphere where new talent can contribute and shine, not be overshadowed by "lifers."

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromoted based on talent and performance, not ability to stay in one place for years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
