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

Pros

The engineers and scientists are generally exceptionally smart. Challenging projects. Product lines that had the means to do good in the world, rather than just make money for the company.

Cons

Middle and upper management often clueless, and communication up and down the management chain may be...modified...to suit the audience. Pay and benefits not on par with the talent of the individuals doing the work: "target" for pay is 90% of "market average".

Advice to Management

Get better at recognizing the people who do the work that pays your salary: the people who are developing the company's products.

    I have been working at Beckman Coulter full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Except for few honest real good technical people and neat product, nothing is great there
    They even ship instruments with so many defects and question their quality management for hurrying things , Support individuals for mocking other employee, No employee work ethics...dont know what else..Just hire people who can work, work and hire contractors as full time employee who dont have right employee behavior..

    Cons

    Bad attitude, zero collaboration, no engagement, high stressful work and also work for which you havent been hired for..dirty jobs, severe major politics where HR plays pivotal role to save their "Loud mouth attitude" people, unrecognized talent...Senior management talks big stuff "Integration, compliance, " but nothing in action, No vision.....Please dont join...Horrible company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest your politics and tactics at some other joint. Dont play with talented and skilled employees and sell your sales pitch to some of your unique product..

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

    Pros

    I'm employed....I guess that is a start. They give you a vehicle but put a GPS on it and watch it 24/7

    Cons

    Metric the crap out of everything, next up is they might metric how long you spend in the bathroom, after all you are doing that on company time. Company;s non-compete agreement basically keeps you or any member of your family from working at any other biomedical company or lab that has BCI equipment. That my friends is indentured servitude.

    Advice to Management

    Screw the metrics, all save the only important one which you do not even measure...Will this customer buy from us again. The lab is an incestuous beast where people work at many labs therefor they talk to many people, and the rep of BCI is bad....very bad. Oh yeah, the no compete agreement, I will never sign that dam
