Mission: Answer life's most important questions by unraveling the complexity of protein & cell biology
I have been working at Molecular Devices full-time (Less than a year)
The service organization is phenomenal. The leadership on this team is great, and they truly value their employees having a good work/life balance. They expect a lot from their employees, but provide lots of support and are very receptive to new ideas and ways of doing things. Everyone is very friendly and helpful.
The company could do a better job of kreping remote employees in the loop. There have been some changes recently in where different functions are being performed, which has resulted in some layoffs at company headquarters, but it seems like all companies in this field are having changes/layoffs/reorgs. However, I'm impressed with how the changes and layoffs are handled - management is very open about what is happening and why, which is very different than how my previous company handled it.
Advice to Management
Continue to communicate with your employees about the changes happening. I've been here for less than a year and am a part of the service org, so from my perspective things look pretty good, but make sure to give the service org the support and staff that it needs to continue to grow.
I applied online. I interviewed at Molecular Devices (New York, NY).
Went through several phone interviews and was invited for an in person interview at the HQ. When it was time for me to schedule the in person interview, it was radio silence.. neither the HR or the hiring manager would respond properly as to why they kept postponing the interview and eventually they just stopped responding. It was an extremely unprofessional experience. If they weren't interested in interviewing me they could have just said so instead of leading me on over several months.
