    I have been working at QIAGEN full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Qiagen is a progressive global organization that continuously strives to positively impact patient lives with constant processes, and systems improvements along the way for high quality and greater efficiency for patients and clients. Qiagen really takes pride in investing in the employees with training and benefits, which allows us to exceed client expectations and promote a harmonious, professional environment and culture.

    Cons

    There is an open/modern concept in buildings instead of having individual offices we need more huddle rooms and additional spaces to have confidential discussion, which need to be incorporated in the space planning.

    Advice to Management

    Better space planning for discreet and confidential discussions to take place in the space planning. We can also look at the pay scale to better negotiate with our competitors to attract and keep existing talent.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at QIAGEN (Redwood City, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on 7/24/2017 and was scheduled for a non-technical phone screener with HR the next day. Then I was schedule with a Senior Staff Engineer for a technical interview on 8/7 which consisted of: General Java Knowledge, OOP Concepts, and coding the implementation of a binary search via WebEx Screenshare. You have the flexibility to use any IDE you like (which is nice).

    Passed the first technical round and was set for a second technical interview on 8/18. Second round consisted of a coding exercise: reversing a string. Then I was asked to explain whether a given Singleton class was thread-safe or not. Next I was asked about database knowledge.

    I did not make it to the on-site (final) round.
