Pros

Excellent benefits, and work environment. sometimes challenging however not particularly stressful.

Cons

The scientific end of the operation, not really R&D, more development, was very arrogant and brittle. they tried to manage engineering efforts however did so poorly resulting in ten to fifteen year old designs that never improved. Manufacturing was always left hanging. They often would comment in terms of their importance, referring to all other functions and people as "rote" or not significant- Not team players!

Advice to Management

They need to decide whether or not the company is going to grow, and if so get out of the way and hire the key operations, engineering, and yes, R&D staff that will allow for unfettered growth. Too much old baggage with the current executive management team.

    I worked at Abaxis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great products to sell, and a lot of fun. You can make decent money and a lot of push to succeed.

    Cons

    Pretty unfair with compensations and territories, high stress, and lots of travel. They did a great job hiring awesome people, but never kept them because quality of life became so poor!

    Advice to Management

    Stay consistent with compensations and territory. Keep your star managers and reps around by making them happy.

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

    Pros

    High quality veterinary laboratory equipment
    High income level possible

    Cons

    Poor expansion plan
    High turnover

    Company went from direct sales to distribution model. Signed exclusive distribution deal, almost doubled product price, and expanded sales force. When they expanded they looked at territories by prospects and didn't seem to account for distributor strength. Some territories had 10+ distributor reps with strong customer relationships while others had week distribution with as little as 1 or 2 distributor reps. Quotas were the same for all territories.

    Advice to Management

    When changing the sales model either don't sign and exclusive distribution deal or take distributor strength into account when choosing expansion territories.
