    Pros

    A small business feel inside of a larger business. It was easy to contact higher ups for solutions and questions that may arise.

    Cons

    There seemed to be some confusion in communication between corporate and our site. Our site needs were very different than the rest of the company, and it seemed often time these needs were over looked.

    I have been working at Beckman Coulter (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company car , cell phone

    Cons

    Ran a great product into the ground, customers no longer get same level of service as Dade Behring or Siemens. Parts are issues. All about metrics vs customer service. Due to my age and salary I'm stuck here not that I haven't tried. Hopefully I make the December layoffs .

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of your rears!
