    I worked at Bruker full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company has an impressive portfolio of high tech gizmos. I worked there in an engineering job and have no clear idea what specifically they were making. I saw plenty of different machines but I have no idea the entire portfolio.

    Cons

    Bruker is probably the worst company I've ever worked for. It was hiring new employees in while senior management was planning to outsource the division. 60 people were laid off some had only worked there for a few weeks/months and left reliable jobs. They guard information like the Stasi. There is no communication between departments/divisions to prevent horrible morale from spreading like a disease.

    Advice to Management

    The German side of the company is like a country club while the America side of the company is like a work camp. They buy innovative companies, usually American, and try to engineer ruthless German efficiency into them. The results are often impressive. The sales usually aren't. The mothership is in Germany. There are physicists in a number of senior management positions that do not understand how a large manufacturing operation should run. Because this mess of an organization is unsustainable.

    I worked at Bruker full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent company for starters but need to move on after 2 years. Other than good medical benefit ... nothing much to say

    Cons

    Management sucks big time .... over load with irrelevant objectives. Even objective met u will not get a raise, they will tell u it part of your job. No promotion and no growth opportunity within the organisation

    Advice to Management

    Don't take your staff for granted
