    I have been working at Bruker full-time

    Pros

    Great equipment. Always the performance leader.

    Freedom to work on a variety of projects with customers.

    Good commitment from mid-level managers.

    Cons

    Finance group makes most of the real decisions.

    Too many changes in compensation programs.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time on employee engagement instead of assuming that people will submit to the will of senior management or finance. Employee retention should be one of the top priorities to reduce the revolving door problem with the sales staff.
