I worked at Alere full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great health benefits, PTO was awesome, great group of people to work with, and they really took the time to train me properly.

Cons

Work life balance is way off. I was away from home every week Monday through Friday. Since I wasn't a member of the sales team, they didn't really seem to care about supporting my section. They were constantly talking about getting rid of my section because it did not fall into the overall plan of the company which added its own stress.

Advice to Management

Your technical team is just as important as your sales team. Yes, sales can sell as much as they want, but if you can't support it you really fall short of the competition.
