Approves of CEO

I have been working at Alere full-time (More than a year)

Pros

the money, flexibility in schedule; working with the most senior executive on important initiatives; making an impact in the direction healthcare will likely go.

Cons

professionals should be allowed to run with it a bit more; too many puffed up VPs who blather on and on; too many moves of staff that seem to be designed to provide ways to exit people; not enough feedback to people about how they are faring in the job.

Advice to Management

Respect your strategic thinkers; not everything can be known with certainty, the sales flash is a guess and a waste of time.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Alere full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very laid back environment. Collaborative and positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    Contract positions have minimal discussions of possible extension/timeline, etc....but that's the nature of many contract positions in general so it's not necessarily a negative against them.
