    "Company with great potential"

    I worked at Molecular Devices full-time

    Pros

    Good products and talent. Issues are dealt with by searching for a root cause rather than a scapegoat. Current implementation of DBS is on the right track - thoughtfully applied. Metrics provide visibility into how departments are doing early so that course corrections can be made.

    Cons

    Disfunction at the executive level is holding back this company. Too many decisions are made in conference rooms rather than working with those close to issue. Too many legacy products rather than focusing on those with the highest potential.

    Advice to Management

    Address the hard issues, find common ground, and challenge each other to achieve the targets that matter. Engage directly with team members to learn what is and isn't working and ask for suggestions on how things can be done better.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Molecular Devices (New York, NY).

    Interview

    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.
