    I have been working at AnaSpec as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    some fun people to work with

    Cons

    a horrible working environment. management runs around at the end to stress everyone out to the point of hemorrhage. there is no vision for the company except to pay for the massive EGT losses in IVD and genomics. Anaspec is being run into the ground by their new and very desperate owners

    Advice to Management

    it sets an impossible and unfair precedent when management is rewarded and promoted without demonstrating performance. how do you tell the fundamental problem to change, anyway?

    Pros

    AnaSpec has a plethora of products and services, which can allow you to become more educated about research done in a number of fields.

    Cons

    An "us versus them" attitude seems to be too prevalent from the perspective of the employees towards the management.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have more focus on the information sharing from management to the customer facing employees. Much of the disconnect due to a lot of one way communication

    Pros

    working here is okay, and you have the opportunity to work with other groups to a certain extend.

    Cons

    compensation is below market value, management is average. My experience working here is that there is a lot of favoritism so not much growth opportunities.

    Pros

    In AnaSpec at Fremont, CA, you have the chance to wear all hats and gain a lot of experience in different fields.

    One of the drawback as you working at AnaSpec is that the technology innovation is slow and you might face up laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Enhance the communication between the production departments and management team. Employees are the key to the company's success.

    I have been working at AnaSpec full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture at AnaSpec is very friendly and comprised of multi-talented employees! A unique blend of expertise is the makeup of the Company. There is a lot of potential to grow within the Company and efforts are highly recognized. Communication is also very transparent and shared frequently. People are always willing to help and you really feel part of a team!

    Cons

    The only potential area of improvement I would suggest is to consider more team building events to foster collaboration. Although this aspect has improved over the past year, more is always helpful of course.
