Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Alere full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Decent benifits are ok but could be cheaper since it is a health company

Cons

No Bonus structure for sales position
Little freedom to perform job in a way that would benefit company employee and most important Participatn
Unrealistic metrics for all employees
Little to no growth opportunity’s
Raises are insignificant and do not even make a difference
No recognition for performance
Upper management is very secretive and vague tries to hide the truth and answers your question by leaving you even more questions.
Very unstable environment leaving you with a lack of job stability and constantly walking on egg shells or looking over your back.
Not a job that inspires greatness out of its employee’s
No efforts to keep motivation or moral up
Management yell and belittle their employee’s in front of other employee’s and openly discusses short comings of one employee with another. Agents are not giving opportunities to express their frustrations openly without fear of corrective action harassment or loss of job. Agents are forced to cower to the managers in fear.

Advice to Management

Take care of your employee's and they will take care of you. The bottome line is not always what is most important. Live the Alere values. And treat employee's with dignity and respect.

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

    Pros

    There were some great people to work with. Willing to spend money on technology. Some upper management had the right priorities.

    Cons

    Most upper management had no idea how to get IT work done in an enterprise management. Extremely poor decision making regarding priorities and technologies. Management was more concerned with protecting themselves than doing the right thing.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on doing the right thing rather than hiring your buddies.
