I worked at Beckman Coulter full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Company has potential and plenty of room for improvement.

Cons

Upper Management and some Middle Management do not truly regard employees with respect they say things that may think they respect you but their actions never reflect what they say. Open honest two-way communication does not occur between Management and employees. If you have a problem with a co-worker or manager just keep it to yourself. Trust me on this one... just nod and smile, do your work and collect your pay. If you don't expect much beyond a paycheck and experience for your resume you won't be disappointed.

Advice to Management

No, they already know how bad it is for the employees. They need to institute team building amongst and between all groups and make that a priority, not just talk about doing it. Hopefully they will try to change the culture but I wouldn't count on it.

    I worked at Beckman Coulter full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of my co-workers were amazing people with a great deal of talent. It's a shame they were not and, for those still there, are not valued by their employer.

    Cons

    Employees are not valued and there is little to no opportunity for advancement unless you know someone. The company has lost a lot of excellent workers in the last 3 years and Beckman's customers/competitors have definitely noticed. Do yourself a favor and look for a company who understands that happy employees equals greater company profit and top quality customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Why spend millions of dollars in yearly anonymous employee surveys if you will ignore the obvious results? Also, remove the employee suggestion boxes that are supposed to allow them to help improve the company. Great ideas were ignored daily; the boxes are just taking up "valuable" space.
