    I have been working at Bio-Rad Laboratories full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and work culture in a growth industry with lots of opportunity and room for improvement.

    Cons

    While the industry is evolving quickly, Bio-Rad is a mature company with fairly entrenched ideas and culture so change can be slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep heading in the same direction - things are aligning nicely.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories (Bellevue, WA).

    Interview

    I had first interview with the recruiter, the second one was by the supervisor over the phone and third one in person. I explained my role and previous roles so it was very clear and right match.
