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

    Pros

    Very ethical, integrity is promoted and respected; always doing the right thing.

    Cons

    After the acquisition by Danaher, the genuinely caring for people subsided. It's all about business, KPIs, Bowlers and Funnels (spreadsheets illustrating next projects and financial streeeetttttcccchhh goals). Bad for work/life balance, but great for the business.

    Advice to Management

    A better combination of caring for people/employees with their stretch goals would go a longer way.

    I have been working at Beckman Coulter full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    For the most part fellow co workers are great to work with. As for the company as a place to work I honestly cannot think of a Pro

    Cons

    Nothing in the new product pipeline. DxN has vanished and no other new instrumentation is in that pipeline. Benifits have been slashed, morale is extremely low, mgmt has no concept and/or does not care about employee satisfaction. Unsafe vehicles provided to the field. The list goes on and on. If you are thinking about working here ask a current employee how it really is. Especially in the field. This is a company of a bad economy. They thrive on the fact that tech jobs are tough and threaten employees indirectly. When asked about the safety of front wheel drive only vehicles in snow belt areas, a very senior mgmt official actualy stated (in print) that snow only occurs in the overnight hours and not during the work day. This is the mentality that is running the show. Its all about the pennies, not even the dollars. Danaher is picking the bones of the once great Beckman Coulter. The are going to dispose of the carcaus after they have squeezed the last penny from it ..and its employees. I stay because I am older and it would be tougher for me to find a job.....I'm just what they want.

    Advice to Management

    Danher has bought Beckman Coulter with a goal to suck every dime from the company and to pick the bones of what remains. Then they will disgard the carcaus in bankruptcy. Therfore, there is no advice since they are doing a fine hob of reaching that goal.
