    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. "A bit difficult to handle the training, could get better."

    Pros

    You're helping people quit smoking.

    Cons

    Crazy amounts of micromanaging. One time my colleague was told over the phone by a customer that his nickname was "Square". And she confirmed by asking, "So, you mean spelled like the side of a cube? Typical spelling of the word 'square'?"He confirmed and so she typed it in. She "failed" the call for not spelling the name back to him. Ha!
