    I worked at Dako full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the people make it worth waking up every morning, and are truly a wonder to interact with daily. The location is amazing, really close to the beach.

    Cons

    Some people are controlling, devious, and do not do anything to progress the company's goals, but rather their own. The work can get sometimes become monotonous, and doesn't really evolve. Not much room for upward growth.

    I worked at Dako

    Pros

    Remote employee, so was insulated from the politics.Decent benefits because of acquisition by Agilent

    There was a lot backstabbing occurring because older Dako employees felt threatened. Senior management are trying to stay relevant and protect their jobs because of the acquisition.
