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.

    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.


  2. "Alere has committed staff-- invest in products that put them out in front of competitors"

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Alere full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Committed and passionate staff that are truly interested in improving the health and well-being of the participants and clients that are served.

    Cons

    Poor forward looking vision. Minimal innovation and severe resource shortages that perpetuate the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Invest for the future. Find true thought leaders in the industry and lead the industry in innovation rather than following long after others launch and have outcomes for innovative products.
