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 have been working at Abaxis as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Abaxis is a great place for internship opportunities and each department works with each other, so as an intern I got a little exposure to multiple departments.

    Cons

    Abaxis does not pay as much to interns

    Advice to Management

    Overall, working at Abaxis was a great experience and I learned a lot.

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

    Pros

    The people
    the product you're making
    and little perks of quarterly dinners
    If you're Filipino you're pretty positive to get hired 😞

    Cons

    If you're a temp you're a nobody unfortunately the supervisor was more into being around his own race and blindly ignoring all the inappropriate stuff they were doing but hey it is what is
    If u experience racism or anything that makes u feel bad in a work place don't hesitate to call HR because closed mouths don't get fed

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to look into supervisor with negative motives
    Letting go of people to save their own behinds is unethical
