Pros

Decent benefits, enough resources to do your work, nice facilities and lab space, stable work environment, I could always get PTO when needed.

Cons

Started off at smaller company that was bought by Beckman Coulter. After that, bureaucracy, office politics and favoritism increased steadily. No recognistion of contributions and no opportunities for advancement. A culture of blame developed, blame being passed from the top down to the bottom. Employees were motivated by fear and not by incentives or recognition.

Advice to Management

If there is an issue, listen to all sides. Hold managers accountable for their failures, and don't let them just blame their reports. Better communication and more honesty.

    Pros

    Great people at BC. The processes and management are improving. Product issuesmust improve but this will take some time. Service group is gaining more people too.

    Cons

    Biggest down side is product based. The company has not kept up with competition from a product perspective. Although this will change in the future, there competitive environment is a challenge.
