    I worked at Tecan Systems

    Pros

    IT has been good for me in terms of career growth, expanding in different direction (at least the office in San Jose). I cannot say the same for the Swiss headquarters though.

    Cons

    Management shows (or used to show) total disrespect toward employees. Pushing impossible deadlines and unreasonable number of projects handled simultaneously, leading to frustration an unusually high turnover from employees in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Demonstrate more faith and respect for employees.

    Pros

    Gloabal market leader in laboratory automation. Great company to work for in respect to development of skill set and promotional opportunities

    Cons

    lag in communication from europe to the US. Knee jerk response to field issues. Inability to retain head count in key areas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    develop more opportunites for mentoring and define pathways for promotion in a clear fashion to retain key individuals and prevent them from defecting to competitors
