    The world leader in serving science (not doing science).

    Pros

    A steady job, matching 401K contributions, decent health insurance. The company will have longevity due to its business model (buy successful companies, sell the products someone else created, lay them off when the product obsolesces).

    Cons

    1% raises are standard. With the published rate of inflation being 3%, ones spending power diminishes over time. If you want a raise, move on after a few years (at least to another department).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your business model does not inspire innovation or loyalty. Your company is great for people who lack ambition.

    Pros

    The sales reps I worked for are great people. It started out rough, but they actually care about how I'm doing and they did a wonderful job of mentoring me.

    Cons

    Definitely not very many opportunities available after my internship.
